I really don't think the 1.4 in the Golf would be strong enough to pull a Car trailer, let alone a car transporter with a car on it. That's what the TDIs are best for. The clutch wouldn't be up to it at all

Remember, pulling is only part of the job, stopping is the other part.

It's not recommended to pull anything weighing more than 85% of the pulling car.
