Most likely the tow company hooked up the chains wrong when towing your car. Was this a flatbed tow truck or the two wheel dolly that only lifts up the front of your car? If the tow truck was a flatbed then when the car was pulled onto it the chains were probably hooked up wrong and a lower control arm got bent which would create your car to pull when driving. If it was a dolly type and the e-brake was left on then one of your tires has a flat spot and could be creating a radial pull. Take the vehicle to a repair shop that does free alignment checks and ask them to inspect the suspension for damage/ bent parts that could have been created by a tow chain.

Towing capacity

Depends what you are towing.

If it is a rolling load a relatively small and low-powered vehicle can tow several tons with little difficulty on a level metaled surface.

For trailers and caravans the towing capability must be married with the noseweight capacity.

Then there is local legislation to consider. Here the towing capability of vehicles make little sense as there are age and fairly severe weight restrictions unless additional medical and licencing conditions are complied with.

It isn't a good idea to tow more than two-thirds of the weight of the towing vehicle...

03 suzuki will shift in to all gears but won't move

oops didnt read how to tow that suzuki,oops.
how far you go , over 200 miles>?
is it an auto or stick?

flat towed??
dolly towed,?
towed from front or rear.?
we cant guess any of that and are all covered in the operators guide.
clear as a bell too.

towing cars , most will damage the rear transmission bearing.
because its dry when engine not running.
so the rules are very strict. due to that hard fact.
soon as you tow anything , thing, "rear bearings."
or if Fwd car, same on front.
most cars are not designed to be towed and some only short distances.

MY 2008 GMC YUKON sometimes want crank or start and as soon as I get the tow truck to take it to the dealship it starts up and the tow truck operater is able to drive it of the tow truck at the dealership....

usually problems like that are fuel related like a stopped up filter or something next time it happens check your fuel pressure while it is broke down.

Can I tow a car from Warwick to London with a rope from another car, route is M40 Thank you

Towing a car with a rope is dangerous, and illegal over here. If the front car has to stop, you now have at least two wrecked cars and at least two injured persons. It is a relatively new car, surely one or the other person has the wherewithal to hire a real tow vehicle or rent a tow bar made for that purpose. The tow bar maintains a constant distance between the vehicles.

You could have gotten bad gas in your tank. Did you try dry gas at all? Also, bad gas can leave alot of sediment at the bottom of your tank, waiting for the right movement to get moving into your system. A new filter would only get quickly clogged again. I had this happen- got gas from a station after a flood- fuel tank had to be dropped and cleaned out.

Get an attorney or they will stone wall on this, the first thing any tow company does when faced with a tow related damage claim is deny it, most people just give up and go away, I have seen this first hand, I know people in the towing business, and for the most part this is their policy, deny, deny, deny!
