Safe Towing Tip, Max Tow Capacity

How many people know how max towing capacity is figured for their vehicle?

For cars like my Subaru, you must subtract any load in the car from the rated tow capacity.

For example: my Outback Sport has a 1500 lb tow capacity, if we go on a trip with 600 lbs of people/dog/stuff in the car, my tow capacity is dropped to 900 lbs.

What is your tow capacity?
