Default Hitch on a Honda Fit?

I am thinking about buying a Fit, but I need to tow things sometimes... does anyone know if I can put a hitch on it and tow?

Car's torque is not build for towing. would seriously not consider towing. I am sure it is possible.

If you are going to tow a medium to heavy load it is not advisable. Maybe consider a different vehicle like a pick-up or SUV. If you are going to tow something light maybe a roof rack will be sufficient. Hey that car wasn't designed to tow big stuff. It was mainly designed for passenger transport with minimum to no luggage. But honetly I love the way it looks!!! I wish I have the money to buy one. Good luck.

The Honda fit can not even tow a single Sea-doo. If the towing exceeds 250-300 lbs it will put too much strain on the engine. Keep in mind that most trailers themselves weigh 400-600 lbs.
