can anybody tell me if i can tow a caravan with auto gearbox.thanks

They are fantastic at towing , but it will go through alot of fuel and depending on the size and weight of the trailer/caravan may black smoke more than usual and they don't like slip streaming , try to keep in the clear air

Estimas are excellent tow-vehicles...the only suggestions I can make is when pulling uphill, turn off the overdrive and keep the revs up - it makes the waterpump spin faster and keeps the head cooler. Plus, if you haven't done so already, it's worth installing a new radiator before pulling with an Esti...the heads are prone to going, so best keep the cooling system in tip-top shape (and flushing the radiator on an Esti just doesn't work!) - some Esti owners also suggest installing an extra Gearbox Oil cooler too.

This van weighs in at 1300kg fully laden...there is a Member of the www.estimaownersclub.com that pulls 1800kg with his Estima! :blink:
