  • How much can my Oldsmobile tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Silhouette towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
