Well, that's a pretty American view. Look at the Europeans - they'll tow a travel trailer with a WRX.
thats not what i meant.....

a wrx has the power and torque to move a boat, a 97 buick lesabre does not.....

'97 Lesabre had the GM 3.8 - factory rated at 205hp/230tq according to Motor Trend.

Of course, I'm not sure how much power the FWD auto saps, and I'm sure towing with a FWD with pretty soft rear suspension is gonna be pretty sketchy.

Stay away from anything that's a big 6 cylinder. You don't save any gas over a V8 and they are dogs.
