towing post - update
Sorry about leaving out the details, and thanks for the reply. I have the 2015 2.0 AWD. Glad to hear about your positive experience. Do you know if the towing package includes a transmission cooler? On the hills, did you notice a lot of shifting into and out of Overdrive? (6th gear in our case)
Sorry if I sound a bit obsessive here, but after reading some of the popup portals about tow vehicles, I worry just a bit. I should also say I did a lot of research on GVWR, tongue weights, etc. and I chose the MKC because it had the towing capacities I needed while giving me a great vehicle to drive every day. I traded in a 2011 BMW 328i on my MKC. The MKC was the only vehicle that I did not want to cry when I handed over the BMW keys. Unfortunately, after recalculating less conservatively, I think I will only be about 300-400 lbs under the 3K # limit, and folks are saying that is too close to the limit, and my transmission is doomed to fail. I dont put much weight in that, but it is making me wonder what others are doing out there.
thanks again for taking the time to reply to my post.
