Mercury Mountaineer 4-down?
I just read the thread about the Ford Escape. In February the service manager of a MH dealership told me that I could tow my '05 Mountaineer 4-down. That was a surprise to me, since my car is AWD. I checked one of the big name companies, and they did, indeed, list my car as possible as long as I put one of their kits in it. Saturday I talked to a former tow truck driver who said that those kits for my car don't really do the job, since the MH blocks the airflow to the trans cooler. Today I talked to the owners of a Winnebago Journey, and I noticed that the exhaust is right in front of a toad. That heat can't be any good for the toad, can it?
So here's my question. Can I safely tow my Mountaineer 4-down, or should I look for another vehicle if we decide to go the MH route?
