So I know what trailer I want to pull with my 300m, it weighs 1400LBS.
In the 300m manual it say's I can pull up to 2000LBS.
I called Chrysler Canada and the woman who answered was not a tech but she
said from what she can tell I can pull up to 2000LBS, what is stated in the
I went to a Chrysler dealership to see about getting the hitch installed.
Basically I was told they would not do it, because the car is not meant to
pull trailers and it could damage the car. I asked why it stated I could
pull 2000LBS in the manual and the reply is that it's a book and not the
I then went to a second "5 star" dealership (much larger). I was told NO
PROBLEM. The sales rep even showed me the 300M hitch in the parts book and
told me that what Chrysler says you can pull you can pull.
So now I don't know what to do. I really want the trailer, but I don't want
to damage my car. I was going to use it a lot, probably thousands of KM's
of towing in total.
Does anyone have any experience towing with the 300M or any other cars with
the same body like the LHS, Concorde, Intrepid?
What do you think?
