is this vehicle any good as a tow car? thinking of this vehicle as a friend is selling it and told me it has adjustable rear suspension. Is this true, and if so how does it work?

thanx jerry

i think the adjustable suspension comes from the fact you can put air from a tyre gauage to the top of the shock absorbers.if you open the boot and look at the top of the shock mounts ,tou should see valves just like those on your tyres.i had a caalier with set up .it worked well

I had a Carlton a few years ago, although in 2.6 guise. The 2.0ltr is the same engine as fitted to the Cavalier and so engine and 'box were generally bullet proof. Since the last Carltons were made in '94 the car your looking at must be at least 11years old, which in itself isn't a problem but have a good check of all the electrics since they are prone to engine management problems, and have a good look underneath as the rear chassis legs tend to rot in spectacular style. As for it's prowess as a towcar, the 2.6 pulled a Lunar Delta 610 easily and I'm fairly sure the 2.0 would too.
