When towing a car do you need to do anything special?
It depends on how far you're towing it and what kind of car it is. If it's a rear wheel drive vehicle and you're going very far you may want to disconnect the drive shaft. Other vehicles are on a case-by-case basis. Contact the dealer for specific information about your car. Often it's worth the expense of renting a "tow dolly" if you're towing a front wheel vehicle very far.
Only if your towing the vehicle by the rear wheels. If you are towing by the front wheels you do not need to unlock the steering wheel. Read More

Per GM, towing anything with the Volt is 'not allowed'. So far it's unknown whether it will actually damage anything or simply void the warranty if anything does break, but in either case it's probably not a good idea. -I would say towing up to 800 pounds with 200 pounds of tongue weight is perfectly fine, as the Volt can hold up to 4 people, towing 800 pounds is not much more work. Just take… Read More
