Chevy Captiva?

The Chevy Captiva is sold mainly in foreign markets, but it is sold to fleets in the U.S. It looks like it would be a neat toad.

Is anyone using an automatic transmission Captiva for a tow car?

I like its size better than the size of the Equinox.

Thanks for any help and info.

The Chevy Captiva (same vehecicle as 2008-10 Saturn Vue) is very towable. Towed our 2012 over 10,000 miles so far.
Here is a thread on the subject.

We also tow a Captiva and like it a lot. You won't even notice it's back there while towing it. It seats 4 comfortably and has room for the golf clubs in back.
