Sarz272000 - Just back from our cross country trip to AZ and NM. The new Buick Envision towed flawlessly, 4800 miles 22 days, most at 70 mph on the interstates. Six days out, four days back and 12 days in various camps racing bikes and recreating.
Only the highest passes in the Rockies slowed our progress which sent the tranny hunting for gears sometimes as many as three downshifts. Help is on the way though, I just received the 5 Star Tuning chip to find more horse power, torque and better shifting patterns. Not yet installed so I don't have any feed back at this time.
Our Blue Ox towing system worked perfectly as well, baseplate, Accent tow bar and the Patriot 2 braking system (which takes all of 30 seconds to either install or remove) made the towing easier than expected. We left the toad connected for each of the traveling legs and disconnected when at our final destination. Had the weight certified along the way and the Buick full of bikes and gear weighed 3995 lbs, front axle of our 2552 an even 9000 lbs and the rear axle 13,450 lbs. The front axle is at spec for the coach however we have a 4x4 with a front differential and transfer case together with larger brakes, sway bars and springs. Quigley also upgrades all the wheels and tires to accommodate the heavier front and rear running gear. Axle ratios are also a little lower giving the coach a bit more power albeit at the cost of fuel economy.
All in all our set up performed better than we ever expected, if it wasn't for the two rear cameras reminding us, we would have forgot the car was connected. Once when stopping for fuel I caught a glimpse of the car in my side view mirror and said to the Mrs. why is that jerk tailgating us so close.
