My toad is 2006 5 speed stick shift Nissan Fronter with 4 wheel drive and an electronic selector for shifting from 2 to 4 wheel drive. Many of the 2006's were nontowable 4 wheels down, but we made sure on ours before buying it. I also have the Blue Ox toad brake which is all under the hood and requires no setup when going from driving to towing except for plugging in the light plug. I set the gear to neutral and the selector switch to 2 wheel drive and am ready to go. I figure we are approaching 500 times of setting up to tow, so it has surely paid for itself. If I had to do it over again, I'd do it the same except for getting the real back seat. An ideal would be the back seat model and extended bed mode. We have forded streams and taken our 4 wheel drive into unbelievable places.

Okay, but what make are you talking about????

We tow the dreaded Ford Escape, but we have not had a problem with it, (knock on wood). Read with interest about the problems others have had with this vehicle. We have towed it over 5000 miles..."A" okay so far. It is a late production 2009, and have followed Ford's requirements to the letter.
