Well, it happened before
for different reasons, but I'm not going to be towing for a while: a young woman in a Honda Civic rear-ended my tow vehicle. Everyone is OK, no injuries, and damage was much worse for her car. Thankfully, the insurance companies handled things well and quickly.
But guess which sub-system on my SUV took all the damage? Yep, the hitch. The receiver, 7 pin connector, and whole bumper assembly took the impact. That's a good thing for impact protection, but the whole kit that I had shipped over special and installed
while we were overseas, will need replacement.
Of course, there's a longer supply chain to get parts for these "dadburned 'forrin cars." So, it will be a couple of weeks total, between sourcing and repairing.
So now, in a big Chrysler 300 Hemi rental car, I start wondering how such 'American Iron' sedans can tow?
