How much can you tow with a 4 cyl 2005 Subaru Outback?

Asked by Jul 01, 2019 at 10:30 PM about the 2005 Subaru Outback

Question type: Car Customization

I'm hoping to make a long trip (Austin, TX to Lake Superior) with a bunch of
stuff. Just need to know what's possible.

The thing's got 175,000+ miles and a dubious record (e.g. might have been in
an accident, might have been repaired just fine)

Very little. I would hesitate to tow anything at all in an old, high mile Subaru in the heat.

Sounds wise, thank you.

So, maybe one of those cargo-carriers that fits onto the hitch?

Good luck on your trip. You could rent a truck if you have a lot of stuff to move.
