2 liter means that it's different then here in the U.S. where the only available engine is the 2.4 ltr gas engine. According to our owners manual, 1000 lbs is the max towing weight. Yours may be different and a lot depends on the towing package (class 1 or B) that you have on your vehicle plus other factors.

If you have an owners manual for your particular PT, it should have the information you need.

Not sure if this will help you, but I easily tow my 3 seater waverunner 300 miles to the river and 70 miles to the up the local mountain (big bear). I'm guessing the tow weight is around 1000(750 waverunner & 200 trailer). I have towed a double trailer with 2 750 pound waverunners for 50 miles to get them from one lake to another no problem. My 2006 has 160k miles with no tranny or internal engine problems.
