    So I traded in my 2004 s2000 today. Im sad but happy at the same time, the s2000 was a lot of fun but was becoming more and more of a pain.

    This will be just enough to tow the civic to races :)

    All in all Im happy and I did get one more good, last drive in last night.

    That car makes some sense though.

    I hope to be having kids sometime soon so two 4 doors makes sense plus 1 to tow the race car.

    I am also interested in the specs on it. If I got another SUV I would need it to be able to tow a decent amount.

    3500 lbs for 2wd and 4500 lbs for 4wd

    I spoke to the finance, service, and sales manager to make sure I could tow 3500lbs plus a trunk full of crap and myself and wife. They agreed it would be fine and I said if anything breaks they can enjoy fixing it.

    my car will weigh in at about 2100 lbs, open trailer ~1200-1400 lbs

    I would have gotten the 4wd model but I got a much better deal on this one so I said screw as long as it can tow 3500 with no problems.

    I would assume they rate this low and brake assit will help etc.

    I wanted an F150 4 door but not for an extra 100 a month.

    I think I would need more than 3500lbs. My trailer is a hog; I think it weighs more than my car.. lol My ML is a 5,000lb capacity and looking for a little more than that.

    The only reason the rating is lower for 2WD is because it lacks a transmission cooler. If it is flat as a pancake where you live, I wouldn't hesitate to push 4500 on your rig...

    When did this happen? EW and EF and EG were hatches. Ek was a Coupe. Then Honda cut down to only making 1g Insights, S2000s and the CRZ, right?!

    FD in Japan and Europe then the weird hatch version. These are non us type r but are based off the 4 door chassis minus the hatch.

    This is a lease so I'm not adding any coolers or anything. FL is pretty much flat everywhere I would be going. Roebling Rd is probably as far north I will be towing so it should be ok.

    Booooooo

    I kept the S2000 and bought a Frontier. 6 speed stick, upsized 350z engine, 6000+ pounds towing capacity, 20mpg+ on the highway.

    :D

    Nice Pilot. :D
