Default How much weight can a Honda Civic carry?

I want to use a Honda Civic to pull a car on a trailer and I was just wondering if this is possible. I imagine it is but some people have told me that the engine won't be able to handle the weight. Do you think it will be able to handle the weight?

Civics are meant to carry about 600 Lbs.There not meant to tow anything.I have seen them tow small trailers but they don't go fast and I imagine that the engine is going to be damaged

No, a Civic cannot tow another car on a trailer, check with your dealer, the most that it can tow would be 1000lbs and that is taking in consideration the weight of the empty trailer and cargo(and passengers) in the car also.

Not safe to tow a car with a civic. Braking might fail because of pressure on car.
