As far as I know, every belt or chain CVT in the automotive realm uses a torque converter.

Nissan has enough trouble towing the weight of the vehicle/passengers, without the CVT's breaking down let alone an additional load of 6,000lbs which would add a lot more friction and heat to the unit.
I wouldn't tow with it if it were my vehicle considering their checkered past and the fact that CVT's are expensive to replace.

My aunt with a fairly recent Nissan Juke puked the CVT with about 90,000km on it.

I wonder if people who tow get lucky or maybe follow severe schedule. I remember people pulling pop ups with the “glass” automatics in Dodge Caravan and Honda Ody and never issues.
