Hi Guys.
Installing a hitch or hauling a trailer with the scion IM is not recommended.
I plan to haul a small trailer with not more than 1000 pounds total weight.
Anyone knows about any reported issues for those who did haul a trailer with their scion IM?

I put a hitch on mine just to be able to put a bike rack on, have never tried pulling a trailer with it.

That being said, the specs of the receiver says it has a 200 Pound Tongue Weight and 2000 Pound Towing.

What I would be most concerned about, would be the transmission. If you have the manual trans and the trailer+load are only 1,000lbs, might be worth trying. Not sure I would try towing much of anything with the CVT however.

The CVT would likely be fine, I would just use the manual mode if you're really worried. The CVT isn't a bad transmission, although I don't like it as much as the manual but that's a personal thing.
