How about some comments about what would be a suitable towing vehicle?
Would my VW GTI be suitable?
I know someone who pulls a small trailer with a Jetta with a 1.4L engine, he just takes his time and does not go far. With a GTI 2.0L 225hp engine it has I believe over 200 ft/lbs of torque so you can pull it but I am not sure the DSG could handle 500 miles without complaining. There is I believe an aftermarket DSG oil coolant that you would have to get installed for longer distances. I would install a temp guage for the tranny for sure to see what the normal temp is when running and monitor it under load. The GTI is a very nice hot hatch to drive if I say so myself.
