And this is a US spec Accord, there's probably differences.

On the Accord, best I can find is the car weighs around 3200 and as for towing capacity, I got one number, a thousand pounds. Couldn't find that 3000+ myself. And since it's basically a beer can with an engine, I wouldn't want to stress it at all. But as my two Honda Civics, a '74 and a '79, both croaked at 50k, even with valve maintenance, etc., I might be tempted to say to heck with it and pull whatever. Yes, I have a long grudge cycle.

There is no point in going into discussion re US vs. EUR towing capacity. Basically, the same cars, different towing capacity due to marketing department decision.

For me, European, this setup is not shocking and is seen very often in Europe. I understand that may be shocking for truck owners, but I can help it...
