What is the Towing Capacity for a 2002 Dodge Neon

Question:

I have a 2002 Dodge Neon, how big of a trailer can I pull? I want to buy a pop-up camper. What does the 2,000 towing mean?

asked by: John


Expert Reply:

Your 2002 Dodge Neon is capable of safely towing a maximum of 1500 pounds. For your vehicle, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Hitch, part # 24701. The 2000 pound towing figure refers to the capacity of the hitch, not the capacity of the vehicle itself.

When towing, you must go by the lowest rated component, hitch or vehicle, in this case the vehicle has a lower capacity than the hitch. You cannot pull a trailer over 1,500 pounds with your Neon.
