Towcar summary

What's good?

Effortless towing.Stiff suspension so copes well with van on the back.Hardly drops when van hitched.Reasonable economy and bags of style.Top down,music up and trip to med is a pleasure.

What's bad?

Very few parts needed but expensive if you do.This model needs inlet manifold swirl flaps changing at around 60k ( V6 so there are 2 ) at about 800 per side.Ouch.
