Rav 4 2010 2.2diesel towing horse box?

Does anyone use their rav for towing a horse box? I know my car can tow 2 tonne so I'm in the weight settings, but I'm worried as I have been told that the engine will start to use Oil as it's not designed for towing??? 

Any advice appreciated.

Liz, I don't tow anything ... but, your car has been designed to tow up to 2,000 kg aka 2 tonnes (as you already know). Anyone telling you otherwise really doesn't know what they are talking about. 😉

The 2AD diesel has had it's issues, so the engine could have problems whether you tow or not, but these were (largely) resolved by 2010 and the 150 bhp engine should be reliable ...

Yeah, diesel engines are literally the best engines for towing something so I should think it'd be fine!
