Hi.....
Your car is a AWD.. I don't recomend Dually truck to tow it. With a dually 2 tires will stay on the road. and you have no choice to desengage the AWD. system.
Bucause you will damage the Transfercase. and made the transsmission. work dry.
The best way is a Flat bed.
Is just my suggestion.

Thank you for use fixya..

Yes it can. So long as the front wheels are perfectly straight and secured in this position and I don't mean secured with the steering lock as that will most likely break when your car hits a pot hole. Also, by towing with all wheels, you're adding extra mileage onto your car because the speed sensor is built into the front wheels (this amount will be considered negligible).

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.

SOURCE: 2000 Kia Sportage No reverse in Auto Tranny after towing

YOU'VE burnt the transmission up. 2 wheel drives are required for the drive train be off the ground when towing.. drive shaft removed when towing from front OK as long as driveshafts removed. when towing with rear wheels on the ground and drive shaft still installed will burn the transmission pump out.;you will need another transmission,or sometimes a new transmission pump will repair it,although it will still show the additional mile that the vehicle was towed . thank you for choosing fixya.com

Towing car behind rv motorhome


Should be okay if you use a tow dolly. This means you drive the front wheels up on the tow dolly and strap the tires down. The rear wheels are like trailer tires and should roll as if they do when driven.

Is a tow dolly or a car hauler better for towing a 2005 kia spectra?


As low as the car sets, I would rcomend a car hauler. Reason being, the rear of the car will drag on rough roads.

Towing capacity ?


The Kia Optima does not have a towing capacity. Kia does not recommend towing with any of their cars. CURT does offer a hitch for the Optima. CURT 11216. The class II hitch has a 2,000lb rating on it. As a manufacturer CURT does not suggest exceeding the towing capacity of the Optima (in this case that means not towing at all), but this doesn't mean that you couldn't. If it were me I would if i had to.

Can the 2004 cavalier be flat towed behind a motorhome Towing procedures for 2004 cavalier behind Recreation Vehicle.


If it is automatic the quick is a two wheeled tow dolly. Or if that is not desirable then a RV repair shop can recommend a towing package that will disengage the torque converter in the transmission. Either way is about 1K.

Hello--- can I tow a 2000 AWD volvo wagon with a dolly? Thanks!


Um...no...in order to tow you need rated tow-cable or shock absorbing chains or a tow hitch. you would also need hazard lights that also show which way the towed vehicle is turning (ppl cant see the towing car's turn signals) usually there are magetics ones that hook up to the towing cars trailer light system.
Safe towing by LAW is the issue here...could you tow it with a dolly...yes...but is it against the law..YES and the LAW protects you from hurting yourself,others, and property.
I hope this answers your question. and please be safe. (dont do it)
