DEFINITELY be prepared for CVT problems then!im going to be towing a car thats about 3k lbs.
Not necessarily.DEFINITELY be prepared for CVT problems then!
3500 lbs. I have towed a 3000 lb boat + trailer -so I'm on the limit- with anAre you able to tow a car plus tailer? Whats the towing capacity?
See, this really concerns me.Wow thats pretty good. I would never imagine towing so much with a cvt but its good to hear you've done it with success. I always kinda laughed whenever we installed tow hitches on muranos, i've always felt it was only a matter of time before they blew up the tranny.
The CVT is not as delicate as you make it out to be.See, this really concerns me.
I'm planning a move in the next few months that would best be done using my murano and a standard uhaul like trailer. Are you suggesting this is completely stupid? I understand the technical reasons why this is stressful on a CVT, or any tranny for that matter, but if this thing is so delicate I can't tow a trailer full of stuff (mind you a moderate sized trailer) 2000 miles, how will it hold up for 100K miles sans trailer? What about those folks who drive up and down steep hills everyday in their commute?
Breaking belts? Was that a big issue? There was never any scuttlebutt on the blogs about belt failures. As I am sure you are aware the MO's CVT employs push-belt technology. The actual belt is never under tension. How were they breaking?...when the Murano first came out and we were having issues with the cvts breaking belts, we were really questioning their integrity and thats why i always laughed at the tow hitches.
Thanks man, I'll have a look at both Boardwalk and Daland. The new gig is based in San Mateo and my temporary living arrangements are near SFO so both places are reasonably located.There's Boardwalk Nissan in redwood city where i actually used to work at for about 3 years. There's two techs there in particular, Chris or Vince. You can request them, they are awesome. There's also Daland in Milbrae but i heard they're really tiny and i don't know much about them.
