Customer Question

i have the same question that was submitted 4 years ago. I have a 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid with 173,000 miles. I love this car and want to dolly tow it behind our motor home. I don't want to mess anything up. Can it be dolly towed or not without any problems? Thanks

Hi there,

Here is a reply of mine from just yesterday.

Can you understand what I have said to this owner?

Hope it makes sense.



I am talking about pulling behind a motorhome with a tow bar. Car in great running shape. I know it cannot be towed with the engine off, but wondering if I let the engine run, will it provide the lubrication necessary to the driveline? Or do I need to put it on a dolly? Thanks.

I would have the engine running, most likely select drive in the Jetta, while the tow vehicle is in Park, handbrake on, and then drive off in the tow vehicle.

I think the trans would be happier shifting gear by road speed, it would think you are just coasting down a long hill.

I would setup a gopro camera on the Jettas instruments.
