Hi,

which Honda?

With a Ridgeline, you could tow your house, garage and 3 trills.

With a Civic.. you might be able to tow a childs wagon...

You have got to be kidding.

There are golf carts bigger than that car.

Any searching I did indicated that the Honda Fit is not capable/equiped for towing.

Got a link for your source? I think it may be incorrect.

The data you are reporting is very atypical for a car the size of the Fit. Usually, the greater the mass of the tow vehicle the greater the towing capacity. (Usually, but not universally. Other factors come into play.) Vehicles in the size of the Fit are rarely tow rated for more than 1,000-1,500 pounds. And even at a 1,000 pound rating, safe towing might be marginal due to the short wheel base of the vehicle. I'm surprised the vehicle has a tow rating. I doubt its capacity to pull anything over 500 pounds.

The Fit is not designed to tow a trailer. Its total weight capacity, including occupants and cargo, is 850 pounds.
