Toad details

We love towing our Ford C-Max Energi. It is 2014. All tires on the ground. We use a brake buddy and all works well. The odometer does not turn over. We plug in the car at the CG at the end of the day. Sometimes our travels take us to an EV station, as we found at Longwood Gardens last week. The C-Max is a great car. We love it for our every day car and our toad.

We used to tow a Toyota Yaris, but now use a Jeep Wrangler. There were too many places we wanted to visit, only to find a warning sign: Unimproved road - high clearance vehicle required. A Jeep solved that for us.

We flat tow a 2004 Chevy Malibu that weights about 3,200 pounds. It has a little over 145,000 on the odometer, and has been towed almost the same distance, including to Key West, FL, Fairbanks, AK, and an awful lot of places in between.

We get a little over 30 mph on the highway, low 20's in the city, and about the biggest repair, other than going through a lot of brake pads (thanks, Dobbs Goodyear, for the lifetime pads!), has been replacing the alternator this past winter. We've been talking about trading, but I can't figure out why we should.
