Towing with a Subaru?????
Posted 11 October 2007 - 10:30 AM
Im planning on selling my 94 Isuzu Trooper and getting a post 93 Legacy or Outback.
Question is though.
Can the Legacy/Outback handle pulling a tow dolly with another subie on the dolly?
It would be towed on flat to mellow inclines , just up and down the I-5 corridor here in Oregon.
Thanx all .
I just really want my subie back but dont know if it can handle the work load I need it to do?

I use to load tractor trailers for united rentals so load and towing are in my background.
AT cooler and brake upgrades will be on the list aswell.

I think soob wants trailer brakes over 1000lbs.
www.cars101.com would show the towing ratings.

just my 2 cents.

My '03 with the 3L 6 says 2400.

have a dedicated vehicle for towing only, it'll be less costly in the long run anyway. if you can't afford to do that, then don't sell the isuzu.

I wouldn't recommend it

I wouldn't hesitate for a minute to do it on a soob with a manual transmission due in part to a good number of ratios, and the lack of reliance of fluid to transfer the power to the wheels.
