We've been leaning toward a Nissan Pathfinder as a toad. It will take a Remco disconnect. Thought I had the problem solved since an FMCA friend "gave" me a complete unit that he had used on a Tahoe. Well checking with Remco, it won't work, totally different units. Thought I just might have to adjust the driveshaft config.
Remco will have the 08 disconnect available soon. Anyone have a Pathfinder for a toad and your thoughts.
Thanks
Dave

Have you looked at the Grand Vitara? You can tow the 4 X 4 version with automatic with out any additional equipment added.

Thanks for the replys. A standard tranny would be fine for me but my Bride would balk although she loved her 300ZX with 5spd. Not interested in 4WD, got one now that has ben in4Lo one time and that was to pull up some bushes. Where I live just don't need one not to mention the couple of thousand $$ and extra weight. More choices in SUVs with rear wheel drive and much less expense with the Remco. Already have one Remco on our 98Blazer, trouble free for 10yrs.
We still don't know which car to get rid of.
Dave

Many of the new "crossover" SUVs are towable without mods and they are either front drive (FWD) or All Wheel Drive (AWD). Examples are the GMC Acadia, Saturn Outlook & Vue, Buick Enclave, Ford Edge & Taurus X and Lincoln MKX. Also the Honda CRV.

There are also some automatic sedans that are towable without mods, e.g. Chevy Cobalt, HHR & Malibu, Pontiac G5, G6 and Torrent, Ford Taurus and Saturn Aura.
