er the last 20 years I've towed more stuff than I care to remember including: a Ford Festiva, Suzuki Sidekick, Honda Pilot, CRV. Never any problems. But these are with the exception of the Pilot not long-range daily drivers. Small gas savers OK, but comfort and safety, for day trips (and room for the dog) are nice attributes also. The Saturn Vue may be my last toad. However, this is NOT a liteweight - like 4300 lbs, right? But with AWD (for runnin' trails), power, (boat pulling), good looks (for showin' off), and some mass for safety, I'm lovin' it.
