I will most likely need to get a used tow vehicle is the near future. I like the way my Saturn works, but it is falling apart.

I heard years ago the Chevy Impapa tows on 4 wheels. I would want a VAN or 4 doors, etc. Do you tow or know of a vehicle that tows on 4?

The Honda CRV seems to be the car that's most popular.

We tow a Hummer that is a great tow vehicle and off road machine, but it is heavy and expensive.

Most 4X4 Jeeps can be towed four down without modification.
In fact, most 4X4 anythings can be towed four down IF the transfer case has a "Neutral" position.
IMO, the Owner's Manual is the final authority. When in doubt, read the instructions. If the book doesn't have any instructions about towing, the vehicle probably shouldn't be towed.
Of course, there are ALWAYS exceptions.

Not sure about the Impala, but the Chevy Malibu can be flat towed. I'm sure that if the Impala can be flat towed, some one will chime in with that info.

Look at the dingy towing guide on Motorhome Magazine.
The guide is by year, 2010 back to 2002.

I highly recomend the Chevy HHR, lots of room and fuel mileage is great and can be towed 4 down. We went with the Chevy HHR after DW done many hours of research. We tow it behind a Mobile Suites 5th wheel. Just finished a 6,000 mile trip, not issues at all. Many miles were in Colorado Rockies. Good Luck with your Choice. GBY...

We flat tow our 2006 Malibu Maxx which has 4 doors. Our 2010 Potiac G6 is also flat towable and has 4 doors. We just have not had a base plate installed yet. Check the owners manual.
