AS best I can remember, the Cavalier became towable when it received a 4 speed automatic transmission. The 3 speed is not towable.

If it is towable, the owners manual will clearly spell out the procedure.

if it were a stick shift, then its towable. since its a 4 sp at, it is not address other than via emergency tow, wrecker. local chevy and rv house not any assistance.

so, we are still listening. camping world states there is no plate made for our car by roadmaster. if there is another plate available by different mfg that we could use with our tow bar, we are very interested. save a buck. but if not then we must have a different tow bar.

looking for answers guys. thanks.

I towed a 94 Cavilair with manual transmission and a 96 with four speed auto. Had Blue Ox baseplates on both and I believe there are adapters for the Roadmaster Tow Bar.

Have you contacted REMCO about the car. I looked at the site and they do not list a Cavalier. Check here or here

I can not fnd any reference for Cavaliers. I am beginng to believe that they are not towable with an automatic except with a dolly.

Forget the Cavalier, check the iRV2 classified ads for another toad.

Remco says the 2000-2005 Cavalier with the 4T40E transmission is towable as is. Just put in neutral unlock the steering wheel an tow.

Richard and Shirley...looks like the dolly is your choice or look for a new dinghy. Did you contact Remco? Let us know what they said.

Hey Richard & Shirley. We have towed our '96 Cavalier with the 4spd tranny for many miles. The only problem is that after long distances, the battery in the Cavalier tends to go dead. Other than that, it tows like it wasn't there. A good, sturdy little car.
