We tow a 2011 Chevy Equinox. It weighs about 3700# and the motorhome handles it well. You really don't know its back there. You really don't have to worry about stopping the rig if you have an aux. brake system, which most states require anyway. I set my brake buddy sensitivity at the halfway point and it only engages when you really have to get on the brakes. My opinion is that's the best way to set the sensitivity. If I was looking for a used toad it would probably be a Saturn Vue or a Honda CRV. The Vue would be cheaper. A car like yours would just be too small for us, since we don't have a pickup too. We traded our fifthwheel (2009 Big Horn) and our 2005 Dodge 1 ton pickup on the Georgetown and I really miss the pickup. Best truck I ever owned. But, since we are retired and full timers its not practical for us to have two vehicles besides the motorhome.
