Default Mechanics! - Can a 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid Tow?

I need to know if my '05 Honda Civic Hybrid can safely tow a small trailer weighing no more than 1000 lbs.































I know the warranty will be voided, but I bought the car from an auction, not dealership, and I believe the manufacturer's warranty is only for three years anyway.































This is for a new job, who will be paying for the hitch and installation. I really need the job, but I don't want to run the risk of ruining my car.















I would only be using it for the summer season, 4-7 days a week.

If you're thinking about using the car in daily service towing a trailer, then NO, DON'T DO IT. Your Civic Hybrid is not intended for that kind of work, and you'll tear it up.

It will say in the owners manual what the capacity is. I would not tow 1000lbs with a civic.

Maybe you could get away with it if you want to move across town with the trailer, once, but for regular or long term usage my vote is no way don't do it.
