Do you tow with your vehicle?

Some helpful information to those that use their vehicles to tow.  First make sure you have the proper class hitch and wiring for safety for your specific vehicle.  Second make sure the weight of what you are towing is withing the specifications of your vehicle by looking at the decal on the inside driver door or ask your dealership.  Make sure your vehicle has updated features for towing such as heavier shocks and struts, sway bars and stabilizer bars for heavier loads but also make sure you have proper cooling for the transmission. Heat is still the number one killer of automatic transmissions today!  The properties of todays fluids are designed to carry heat out of the transmission and into a transmission cooler in your radiator in most vehicles.
