Re: VW Golf towing capacity?? (HenkanDDR)

According to my Swedish brochure, a Golf tows 2645 lbs with a braked trailer...! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

With a Euro hitch in Europe, yes. But it is unapproved in the US and that exceeds the US tow rating with a hefty margin, I think. Stick with the DOT, NHTSA? approved hitch and the max US tow rating. Otherwise you could be in a heap of trouble if something should happen.

Everyone knows that you need at least an F-350 to tow anything more than an empty trailer!

And here they are useless for most people as they are considered as trucks and need a C1/C drivers license to operate empty Attaching mere 750kg/1 653lbs requires CE and that starts to become an cost issue. They are an investment for the professional truck drivers!

Plus driving a vehicle classified as a truck can be a nuisance in many European countries. 80kph max, truck lanes, truck queues in the borders with bazillion Russian trucks before you.. a Golf makes a lot more cense..
