    I towed a Porsche from Cincinnati Ohio to Atlanta GA. I didn't haven't any problems. I rented a trailer from Uhaul. It had the hydrolic brakes so I didn't need a brake controler. Your MPG will suck though. Probably 10-12 w/ the car in tow.

    Yep, I have towed a Toyota MR2, Chevy Monte Carlo, and Subaru WRX STI with mine. gas mileage sucks and its a little slow on hills but other than that it tows fine. These were on an 18" featherlite car trailer probably a 4-5k lb load.

    If you tell them what you are going to tow and they dont recomend it, they wont let you rent it. The flat trailer would be better, you can back up and it tows smoother. The tow dolly will get the job done.

    ive hauled a HEAVY load once for about 80 miles. My sisters boyfriend truck broke down and i had to get him. No other option. He drives a Ford F350 CCLB. Lets say ill never do it again, but you can easily handle an altima.

    haha yea. scary as all hell tho, but the taco managed it. it was a triple axle trailer so it took a good chunk of weight off the hitch. But when i got back i made sure to check every little inch of the hitch for problems. NOT A ONE, taco FTMFW!!

    yea, you will do fine, i towed uhaul's double axle (total weight 3700lbs) from florida to washington,

    gas mileage sucked horribly, not to mention i wished i had the manual tranny, couldnt set cruise cause everytime i did, rpms wanted to jump to 4.5k, on level ground..
