Some posts have up to 5 lines in what I presume is the signature area. But I can only fit 3 lines in.

2002 Hyundai Elantra GT. 2650 lbs, don't even know it's back there. Monitor tire pressures with Tire-SafeGuard. Brake Buddy just in case. 86,000 trouble-free miles. Original battery, clutch (after teaching kid how to drive a stick!) Been a much better car than I was expecting when I bought it.

Our choice came down to the Liberty and the Explorer Sport Trac, went with the Ford. Both were 4X4 which we needed for lake fishing in the woods, able to pack more stuff into the Sport Trac.

Does anyone flat tow a 2006 Honda Pilot AWD. I have heard that it should be ok but would like to hear from actual users.

We bought a new 2006 Chev Trailblazer and have towed it about 10,000 miles with a Roadmaster Tow bar and even break. The dealer gave us a paper to go buy but you just turn a button and go . you can even take the keys out as the stearing wheel does not lock. WE took it to a truck stop and it was around 4,800 with a 1/2 tank of gas. It rides nice and tows nice. The back seat folds down and can be used when the wife finds something she cant live with out. We looked at others and did not want to fool around with pulling fuses or stoping every few miles to run through the gears. I hook it up mostly buy my self and can be rolling in 10 min if need be .If the wife helps hooking up even faster. With GM in trouble you could get one for a song right now . Our listed for 30,000 we bought it for 21,000 dollars. You could do better than that now.We have had no problems with it in the 2 years we have had it.

For us it depends on what we are doing and where we are going. We have a 2004 PT Cruiser for general towing and a 2006 Honda CRV if we plan on doing a lot of hiway driving while the coach is parked.

Must be something about 36RD owners.

Like Norton, we have options. '09 Escape AWD, '03 Dakota Quad Cab 4x4, or a 24' trailer that we take to the race track. It's outfitted for worker camping - half bath, heat / AC, and room for 6 cots. It also accomodates either toad, or my wife's SRX - or my GT500, if I feel like doing a track day.

I have a 2009 Ford Flex Ltd. AWD with a US Gear brake and Blue Ox tow bar. Easy to hook up and unhook. Plug and play. Depending on where I'm going I use a Protecta Tow or a bra.

I also tow a 1992 4x4 Mazda Navajo set up for rock crawling. See pic.
