This is a good season for towing, and our expertise at Virginia Select Auto can help you tow safely.

Towing properly starts with a plan, and your towing plan begins with your vehicle's gross combined weight rating. You can find this online or in your vehicle's manual. Please look up your specific trim configuration's GCWR because the rating can vary across a model's range. A vehicle's GCWR includes everything the engine must pull, so don't forget about your passengers' weight.

Next, plan the route you'll drive. Use online resources or your vehicle's GPS. We encourage you to plan alternate routes that avoid curvy sections of roadway, construction zones, busy areas, and steep climbs or descents. Also, remember that you'll need to drive slower than you can when you're not towing anything.
