Engine Performance problem
2010 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 300 miles

We just bought a brand new 2010 Grand Caravan and my wife wants to use it for driving to a vacation. She wants to tow the wave runners-- together with the trailer- total weight is about 2000 pounds.

She wants to take it to get a receiver put on, but I just looked at the van and I can't figure out how to turn overdrive off. This would be useful too because most of her driving is city.

The owners manual doesn't even mention the term "over drive" but it does say "eco drive" with no mention of how to turn it off.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I don't think the transmission has the traditional OD as you are use to. Does the manual mention anything about towing? If it doesn't, I would contact the dealer direct and ask. It may not be designed to tow. If you do tow, make sure it has a trans cooler. Install one if it doesn't.
