Thread: Towbar : Where to get one for Volvo S40

    Default Towbar : Where to get one for Volvo S40

    Hi,

    I've got a Volvo S40 2005 model.
    Does anyone know where I can try for a towbar that won't cost me an arm and a leg.
    I've got quotes for about R5000 which seems a bit much ?

    Thanks,
    Kahn

    Tow bars can cost from R2000 to R8000, R5000 is right in the middle which seems right for a Volvo.

    If R5000 is an arm and a leg for you then how do you afford to drive a Volvo?

    Tow bar cost comparisons:
    Kia Cerato : R4500
    Toyota Corolla: R4153
    VW Golf 6 : R6370
    Audi A4 : R7400
    Mercedes C class: R6900

    They fitted my Ikons towbar for R2400 right here at work, next cheapest place was a fitment centre that could only do it on weekdays at their place (I work, so no go). Supaquick wanted me to pay them R3900 for the pleasure... pfffft
    To quote myself. I just mailed the guy.

    I recently fitted one to my hilux bakkie. The dealers quoted me R3500 then speedy said R4200 (for the cheapest) and then i got hold of a friend who works at toyota and he got the price down to R2100 but i ended up buying one second hand from gumtree and had speedy fit it and i ended up doing the whole thing for just over R1000.

    just make sure the non-dealers fit it properly otherwise bye bye warranty.

    edit: see its an old car, but still, get it fitted properly esp if it is going to be used for anything more than a bicycle rack.

    Well R5000 might not be much but with respect to a towbar it seems a bit much.
    R100 is also not a lot, but I wont pay it for a loaf of bread.

    @supersunbird : Thanks, will give them a try !

    I took my car to Steelite today, they quoted me R2950 for the towbar with electrical harness that protects the car's electronics.


    Thanks Gary.
