Rx-300 Towing & Stopping

Recommended Posts

I've got a 2000 RX-300 2WD vehicle with a Drawtite 3500# hitch. I want to tow a boat weighing about 2200# with this car. I pulled the boat with no problem, but stopping was a little unsettling. I contacted Lexus Corp. and was told the towing capacity was 3500#, but the stopping capacity was only 1000#.

Has anyone had problems pulling and stopping loads such as I describe? Is it safe? The car is in excellent condition and has about 42k on it.

Thank you for your help.
