Looking at buying 2005 Impreza Outback Sport

Hey all,

I"m looking at buying a 2005 Impreza Outback Sport. I'm in college still so tend to move frequently around the summer. It comes with a tow hitch. The I read that it is capable of towing up to 2,000lbs has anyone done much towing with one of these? Also how can it still handle the 900lbs of internal storage it is supposedly capable of handling?

Thanks for the info!

If I was towing anything like that I'd go for a bigass diesel, plenty of torque !!

Well I'm only really looking to need to haul about 1/2 that weight. I'm mostly asking so I know if I can safely throw a full size bed a 42" tv and a bunch of clothes in the back of one of those U-haul rental trailers and be OK to haul it a few hundred miles.

I had an 04 Impreza Sport and it was pretty beast. The towing figure may be a little exaggerated but it will certainly handle the internal weight.
