Hi!

So bit of an odd question, but does anybody drive a VW Jetta Sportwagen 2.5 SE and use it to pull their Hobie?

I'm not worried about whether the car has the capacity - it has. It's rated to pull 2000 pounds… What I'm more interested in is if any of you actually use this car to pull your Hobie and how the car does on the open road? :D

I pulled my Getaway with my 2010 Jetta Sportwagen TDI with the DSG (auto) tranny. No problems at all. My highway MPG went from 35 to 28, but I could run along at 65 MPH and the rig felt absolutely solid. I've never towed it in the mountains, so I expect that might slow it down a bit.
