Towing or Stealing? Hmmm.

I sure would like to have that Mercury convertible - those were cars from a great era.

According to the UK "Caravanner" magazine, the best vehicle to tow a 3000-pound TT is a Ford Focus. For a 3700 pounder, they recommend a VW Passat diesel and they reckon the Range Rover can tow any weight of TT on the market. They don't even look at pick-ups, possibly because so few are sold in the UK. My Kia Sedona (3.5L V6, 5-speed auto) is rated at 6600 pounds in Europe vs. 3500 pounds in the US

I have often wondered why US ratings are so much more conservative - auto manufacturers scared of the lawyers? Maybe the ratings are based on the perceived competence of the average driver. Anyone know for sure?

If I am right a big difference is the hitch weight too. Most european TT have between 50 and 100 lbs hitch weight.
