Who cares? Look at the title of this discussion. It's about towing. Look at the photos published earlier. Those folks care about being able to tow something with their Elantras. If you don't care about discussing this topic, there's lots of other discussions to choose from in Town Hall.
As for rants, it seems to me the only person ranting in here is you.

Backy's right...it's his topic and his title so he gets to talk about that particular subject. If you don't agree with the basic premise, then challenge it courteously and everybody's happy.

please refrain from pointless rudeness. Carspace is normally a friendly helpful place and I am surprised this is among the first rudeness I have seen..why bother.
I was considering getting -one day a used 2004-2005 elantra solely as a tow vehicle for the following reasons...( which if you Google )lists the elantra can tow just over 3000 lbs- yes that's right. They even say - no this is not a typo and list it among other PICKUPS.
Brought to you here by the good folks at edmunds:http://www.edmunds.com/reviews/list/top10/102426/article.html
...Noone else has heard it does tow MUCH more than the civic- and the 350 lbs.!
I would appreciate anyone's input. I would far from purchase a car without investigation. But if it is listed among tow able cars- I would not hesitate too much from purchasing. Another reason it is a good tow car is that -locally the car can be had for no MORE THAN $7000- if I ruin the tranny- who cares- it would be a second bazoo type car so I would not loose sleep. But too anyone- upon learning this little tidbit- WHAT A BARGAIN!!!
Further more I have absolutely no issues admitting no - i am not even slightly able to comprehend what tongue weight, etc etc etc refers to, however what it comes down to is with trailer brakes- of course- 30** pounds. PERIOD. The pics above obviously appear the car is overloaded- but numerous comparos in a google search seem to say otherwise??????? (HELP)
What does anyone think???

Thanks for asking everyone to refrain from rudeness. You are right, we strive to be a friendly, helpful place and we believe we succeed.
You read some older posts - the incidental friction that you sensed has long since abated.
