I have the same vehicle. Go to Ford dealer and buy the trailer hitch which replaces the regular rear end. It took me about two hours to install and I have towed a heavy trailer several times now with no problem. Because this is a unitized body/frame vehicle, it would be unwise to try to weld a generic hitch on. The Ford hitch fits right on to existing bolt holes. You have to cut a small square notch in the center of the plastic rear bumper for the hitch to stick out.

I tow a front wheel drive Ford Fusion Hybrid with all four on the ground. My problem is the starting battery goes dead and the tires are wearing more than normal.


That is the problem, the tires DON'T turn, so every time you corner, the front tires scrub out. You would need to have the key in the ignition and the lock released whilst towing. You can do this easily if you have two keys, leave one in the ignition and lock the doors with the other one.

The starting battery going dead is a puzzle, but Hybrid cars charge batteries as the brakes are used and speed is decreased. The wheels generate power, so perhaps they use power if they are turning with the engine off? Just guesswork.

you may be better with a towing arrangement where the front or rear wheels fit onto a single or twin axle dolly like tow truck drivers use. Like the tow dolly in this link.

Low tire pressure indicator ligt on


this is covered by warranty if it is not just a low pressure concern. Did you chek your owner manual to see if you need to reset? Did you check the spare?
