I assumed they were all rear wheel drive. I looked it uo and some are front wheel drive. I guess I should of stated that the one we have is a 2007 and it is a rear wheel drive. Can we tow it backwards on a tow dolly. Probably would not tow any further than 250 miles.

I wouldn't. There's no good way to lock the steering, as far as I know, that would be strong enough to absorb the loads that would be involved. A friend that drove tow trucks a few years back had a rope harness thet he used to tie the steering wheel in position by hooking it round the brake pedal, but that was only for short distance trips to a repair place or wrecking yard.

Flat tow with a drive-shaft disconnect would be a lot better.

Thanks again for your reply
