I have a 2006 Sorento and my hubby wants to use it to tow his 18 foot Skeeter bass boat. Will this work? I've read a couple of posts that I've stumbled on and I just want someone to confirm that this is not going to burn up my transmission. It seems that this may require:
1. Some kind of transmission cooler?
2. Some sort of brakes than I don't already have?

I already have a new hitch installed by U-haul.

Anyway, I appreciate any assistance.

:confused:

As long as whatever you trying to tow don't exceed 3500lbs (that's what allowed according to manual) you don't need anything extra.
Sorento already have a transmission cooler and OEM brakes will be fine for now. brake rotors are prone to warping on Sorento, but that happens even without towing. So your hubby will replace them for you with better aftermarket ones. :)
