Default How much weight can a honda civic carry?

I want to carry a steel file cabinet, would it be able to handle it? Or would it be too heavy for the car?

should be fine, when you open the door, theres a sticker on the frame where the door touches at, it usaully has your tire specs as wells as the suggested weight limits,

however, i will say, i know we were way over it in my friends civic like 6 years ago. he had a gold civic, i wana say it was an 01 but cant remember forsure. anyways, we rode 11 ppl in tthat civic b4. one person in tunk with system, 2 ppl on passenger seat(lapped up females with males) we had ppl on floor boards, in the back we had ppl laying acroos everyone else. it was a clown car.... i would never do it again, but when we were young and dumb, and trying to get to a party.. well nothing was going to stop us obviously. being as we pilled 11 ppl in a civic(2door is important for u to know.) anyways, his car didnt die for like another 4 years, and there was plenty of possibilties on why. anyways, i have an 08 civic si, ive had 5 people including my self in it, you can definatly feel the weight, but its still fine. or like the other night, i had a whole extra set of 17 inch rims with tires in it, and that was no problem either.. honestly you should be fine as long as your suspension components arnt already busted,

Honda Civic is a car that has been with us since 1973 and power range is from 50 HPs to 225 HPs, since you dont say what Civic you have, you can use a car performance simulator to test how your car would handle extra weight, any extra weight, you can just add it and the system will tell you.

It would be weighed down a lot and might be scraping undercarriage...

A steel file cabinet should be no problem, a friend had one and there was four of us and all of us weighed over 300lbs. I figure something like 1500lbs was in that car. and no I don`t have pictures.

You will feel a major weight difference, but just be sure your brakes can handle it
