2011 Honda CRV

The manual says 65 mph is top speed when towing. Anyone had problems between 68-70mph? I am looking at 4wd model. I travel through alot of 70 mph zones and was just curious.

I exceed 65 when passing another car. However, I normally cruise around 62...better mpg and fast enough for this beast, so it's not an issue for me.

We tow an 07 and sometimes exceed 65 for a short time when passing or going downhill and have not had any issues. I do have an acquaintance who fried a CRV tranny (2010, I think) while towing it. He claimed he was hurrying home for a family emergency and averaged 70-75 most of the time for 600+/- miles, and that is what broke the transmission. I take that with a grain of salt, however. He is a driver who has never seen a speed limit he does not like to break. I rode with him once to the golf course. I would not ride with him again.

I think the problem with over 65 is lack of lubrication and overheating. I have towed our '05 Ody for a short distance at over 65 but not often and not far. The '97 Jeep GC was a different story!!

I tow a 2011 CR-V at 65 to 70 all day with no problems. It just cuts in to mileage real deep. Every time we stop I start it an let it run while we eat. It works great.

The CR-V is about 1,000#'s lighter than our Ody and I don't notice it either. Thinking about getting a CR-V though. Problem is the Ody is paid for and gets 19 around town and 27 on the road which is about what a CR-V gets, plus the Ody has a lot more power. But it's not OK'd by Honda to be towed. I do hold it to 65 or less unless passing.
