Ladies and gentlemen,
I have recently joined this site and its great to see people willingly sharing experiences and hard to come by knowledge. In these days and ages I believe people voluntarily helping each other out is a dying art (so to speak).
I would value anyones input into the suitability of an FG XR6 towing a boat, no so much in the engine/transmission/engineering area (very able) but more in regards to the ride height as the XR6 sits lower to the road than the base model FG (so I'm led to believe).
I have my heart set on picking up an XR6 early in the new year (most likely a 2009 model) and this is the only reservation I have on the car - the ride factor when towing. Most of the time the XR6 will be used for normal day to day family driving with only the odd weekend where the boat will towed so I don't want a 4 x 4 etc as I will be towing only about 5-10% of the time.
The boat I have weighs approx 1300kg but I'm not certain of the ball weight but will assume its in the 10% range of the total weight as it was set up by a boat dealer.
Any feedback would be appreciated, especially anyone that tows with an XR6 and their towing set up.
Thanks in advance.
