    I just rented an auto transport from u-haul which weighs 2k and used it to tow my BMW which weighs 3,300lbs. I towed from San Antonio TX to Virginia and the truck performed great. I was able to maintain a speed of 70 with ease, even up hill and the temp guage stayed right in the middle all 1,500 miles. This truck is awesome.

    Shifting was ok no hunting, nothing out of the ordinary. I only took it out of D on some of the steeper hills.
