Default OT - Matrix Towing capability

Anybody here ever try or know someone who is towing a small trailer
with a Matrx. I'm thinking of something like a 4' by 6' or 4' by 8'
trailer with something like a garden tractor or golf cart on it?

I wouldn't be doing it a lot and not for long distances. I would need
to go get corn for the pellet stove once or twice a month. That would
be about 500 lbs. of corn on the trailer hauled loaded for about 20
miles. I would also like to be able to haul a golf cart to a few
bluegrass festivals during the summer and that would be for a longer
distance. Maybe a hundred miles or so round trip.

I am kinda skeptical but the salesman said the Matrix would pull up to
2400 pounds including the trailer. I think that is way over half the
weight of the Matrix itself.

I am down to one car now and I would like to avoid the expense of
having to get a small truck or something.
