Is The Curt Tow Bar Compatible With A 2022 Chevy Spark


Can I use this to tow a 2022 Chevy spark manual transmission flat tow


Expert Reply:

You technically could use the Curt Tow Bar with Adjustable-Width Arms - Car Mount - 2" Ball - 5,000lbs # C19745 but this tow bar is meant to be bolted to the metal bumper which would mean you'd have to really cut into fiberglass bumper and it wouldn't be as clean of a look as base plates. This kind of tow bar is typically used with Jeeps that have the metal bumper exposed.

I recommend using the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # RM-523202-4 (LT) along with the Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar - 2" Ball - 5,000lbs # RM-020 for a much cleaner look.

Using a ball-mount tow bar will require you to have the tow bar level so I've attached our help guide article to assist you in finding the correct drop/rise needed as well as our page of adjustable ball mounts.

You'll also need tow bar wiring, a braking system, and safety cables to safely flat tow your 2022 Chevy Spark. If you haven't already purchased these items then I have the following recommendations:

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Universal Wiring Kit with Smart Diodes for Variable Voltage Incandescent Tail Lights # RO94FR. This diode kit will convert the 12V signal from your RV to a 9V signal, ensuring that your car's variable voltage tail lights function as intended. 4-Wire harness included for installation. The adapter cord and plug are sold separately so you'll need the Curt 7-Way RV to 6-Way Round # C59HR as well.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional # HM39524. This system offers intense, emergency braking or steady, smooth braking in a single portable system. Easily switch between proportional or full braking using the remote conveniently from your motorhome. The included charge line kit will also keep your towed vehicle's battery from draining while you tow so you won't have to worry about dealing with a dead battery when you reach your destination.

Safety Cables: RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables - 6,000lbs # RM-643. The coiled design of these cables will help prevent them from dragging on the ground and being damaged.
