Illustration for article titled When the ol trusty longbed finally reaches the great junkyard in the sky, should I just get trailer instead?

The IS300 can allegedly tow 2,000 lbs. I would use it for like moving appliances or going on my usual dump/yard waste runs (I’d say I do over 50 year with the longbed). Of course, many of the IS forum users are disgusted with the idea of using such a car as a workhouse, accelerating wear and whatnot. But I’m not talking 100 mile trips or anything under load.

Anyway, what say thee Oppo? Outside of one Ms. Mercedes, I can’t say I’ve ever seen any posts of oppos using regular cars to pull a trailer.
