Default Towed choices

We went goofing off today and came across 2 possible towed's for our bus and I just wondered what info any of you might have.
1. 2015 Hyundai Veloseter turbo r spec
2. 2017 Nissan Versa (base model)


Both are cars with very low miles and both are manual.
Of course we are on the fence. I want the zippy one and he wants the boring silver one. (Kill me now)

If it helps any the Hyundai will come with a better and longer warranty.

Just because its a stick does not mean its towable.
Did you check with the dealer?

I have checked online and they both appear to be. Will definitely investigate further before we buy either one. Was just seeing if anyone on here had any experience towing either car is all.

I’d make the dealer show it to me in the owners manual.

Well Randy, we tested a Jeep Compass this morning. Very unimpressed we were. It was grossly underpowered and slow and it didn't even have a/c. Adding that would totally over tax that poor little 4 banger. Tested some more cars and I just can't justify buying yet another car to be abused behind the bus. I am heartbroken my Mini isn't going to be used due to it's long list of potential problems. I have also grown to hate used car salesmen even more due to all the time they wasted of mine today with their sales tactics. Sell me what I want to buy, not what you want to get rid of.

I have been following your posts, and am a little surprised by your comments . You may have approached this incorrectly. YOU HAVE THE MONEY IN YOUR POCKET, YOU ARE THE DECISION MAKER, YOU HAVE THE CONTROL. Do not let someone waste your time with nonsense sales tactics. Set your posture and let that dictate your approach . Good luck with your search .

How about ZIPPY with a hint of practicality?

If you're going to tow, can't beat Hyundai's warranty. 10/100,000 for power train last I checked.
