Have y’all done any towing? I’m planing on pulling an 800lbs boat. I know the manual says not to tow with this car but just curious to know how it went for the people that have done some towing.
Ive towed an 1800 lb Seadoo Speedster all over the place, thousands of miles. I usually dont go faster than 65-70 on the highway. After that, cooling and oil temps start to rise, especially if youre using the AC. I also towed an 800 lb Hobie 16 sailboat from Chicago to Pensacola and back. It’s actually a really good tow vehicle, its widely used in Europe to tow small campers. Just be smart and youll be fine.
