make sure they are made to tow
or fairly easiely can be
how do you plan to tow the little THING
there are at least three different ways

they are a cute little car
and I was reading just the other day
also
considered to be well built for the money

Standard tranny, four down... Only weighs 3300 lbs so Berkshire won't even know its there... Shouldn't effect fuel economy at all.... I've seen quite a few being towed so don't believe there would be any issues....

We towed a Mini for years. Standard transmission and we just put it in neutral, turn the key on and then off and leave the keys in the ignition and don't lock the doors and it tows like a dream. Great car for a toad. We had a convertible and it was a blast when we got to where we were camping.
