    Does anyone know what the maximum towing capacity of the Tuscon FWD 4
    cylinder model is? I've read and heard different values, anywhere from
    "not recommended" to 2000 pounds.

    Google is your friend. A simple search for "Towing Capacity of Hyundai
    Tucson" turned up a ton of stuff. Looks like it's a 2000 lb towing

    I agree Google is your friend most of the time, but when I did a search
    on Google for the tow capacity of my 2005 Accent, it gave me results up
    to 1500 pounds (not counting the higher kilogram ratings on the UK
    cars), yet my owners manual says towing is not allowed.
    Google gives me various different limits for the Tucson, that's why I
    was hoping an owner had the "real" info available.
    Too bad Hyundai doesn't list the towing limits on their website like
    Dodge and Ford do.

    Oye! I understand your confusion. I looked on the Hyundai web site -
    rather quickly - too, and was disappointed not to see towing capacity.
    That's bit odd I think. I think I'd have to go with the owner's manual, at
    least until I could find something else from Hyundai themselves that
    contradicted it. You sure don't want to screw yourself out of your
    warranty. That said, unless the Tucson is built out of swiss cheese, it
    really should have no trouble pulling 2000 lbs with a tongue weight of at
    least 150 lbs. That's really not a lot of towing strain.

    volvos are great solid cars, but like anyother have their share of problems.
    exspecially their electrical systems..
