Towing with a Manual Clutch
By Deb Milo on
2002 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5M)
I bought a new Pathfinder SE 4WD with
stick this year. Next I bought a
horse. With 240hp, I knew I had plenty
of power to tow a double horse trailer
with two horses. Not true. Did you
know that the manual transmission is
rated at 3500 lbs. towing capacity
while the auto is rated at 5000 lbs. ?
Go figure ! What can I do ?
Make the towing capacity of the stick
shift the same as the auto and add some
darn leg room in the rear.
