two quads and a trailer would be at least 1500 pounds, probably more, the towing capacity on these cars isnt much over a 1000pounds if i recall, you might need to invest in a tranny cooler if your doing that alot.

My dad owns a 92 se and uses it regularly to pull a snowmobile trailer with 2 sleds. he also pulls a tent trailer regularly that weighs pretty close to 1500lbs fully loaded. He has had no trouble with the car because of the towing and the car currently has 330,000km on the original engine and tranny.
