SOURCE: I want to tow a kia sportage can I use a tow dolly

If you have a four wheel drive Sportage, you will destroy your transmission by towing the vehicle with the rear wheels on the road and the engine not running. The problem is that the wheels will spin the transmission, causing wear on it since there is no transmission oil flowing while the vehicle engine is not running. You can, however, remove the rear driveshaft from the Sportage and that will allow you to safely use a tow dolly, since the rear wheels will be free spinning.

What is the towing performance of a kia sportage 2ltr 4wd


Towing


Kia lists a maximum trailer towing mass (trailer plus load) of 1800 kg for the Sportage but that figure would be illegal in NSW. For light commercials (such as the Sportage) in NSW, the regulations state that the loaded trailer must not exceed 2/3s of the gross vehicle mass (GYM) of the towing vehicle. The Sportage's GVM is 1928 kg, resulting in an allowable maximum towing mass of 1292 kg. Even this figure could be beyond the Sportage's reasonable capabilities, given its sub standard handling and its overall levels of performance.

Is chasses on kia sportage 2001 model strong


about as strong as folded 1mm thick sheet metal can be. Most cars now do not have a chassis but are uni-construction which means that the whole body is the chassis and if you are planning in fitting a tow bar to the car then get a tow bar fitter to do the job with an approved tow unit that has been designed to spread the stress over a large section of the car.

How much weight can I tow with a 2002 Town & Country with the 3.8L V6. I have an 18 foot Stingray I/o runabout fiberglass boat & want to know if I can tow it with the T&C.


3500 Lbs.

Install an oil cooler if you do not have one already.

The Limited has everything the tow package came with except the stronger blinker control (not really needed).

You will likely be at or slightly over the limit. Remember you will have gear in the boat and a full tank of gas all added to the dry weight.
