Both FMCA and Motorhome guides for dinghy's are just that, guides. Both did a horrible job on some vehicles such as toyota's. To be objective Toyota is vague about their capabilities. Both ford and gmc are better I'm not wild about US automakers. I tow a toyota with driveshaft disconnect but I already had the vehicle. If I had a choice I would tow a honda.

You said "a small car" so go with the Chevy Cavalier. It's fully towable four down with an automatic transmission. No miles limitations, no speed limitations. Just hook it up and take off.

My son drove the Odyssey to FL. I didn't have time to install the brackets. I did bring tools with me and planned to install the brackets here some time this winter. When I install the brackets I'll take some photos.

The only time we need the large Odyssey is for our 6 winter months stay in FL when my son is with us. For our summer trips towing my wife's Honda Civic makes more sense as it is much lighter and there is only my wife and I. I've towed the Civic about 20,000 miles.

My brother-in-law tows a Honda Fit w/automatic (Honda approved) and loves it. If I ever get another toad I think it will be the Fit.
