You ever try towing with an SL2?  I have successfully towed, with my '86
*VW Bus ~2100 lbs + 300 lb tow dolly
*VW Bug ~1700 lbs + tow dolly
*Uhaul Trailer, dual axle ~2000 lbs.  Not to mention all the clothes and
stuff in the trunk and rear seat.

I think my co-workers Saturn would scream if I tried that.

|I just sold my wife's SL2 which I NEQ tracked four times until

|At 2800lbs my 4000Q is probably gonna make a come back.
