In that case, Honda and Demco were on record as not endorsing towing of those models, yet baseplates were still sold for them, and tacit approval was implied.
I don't know where you got the above info but it's wrong. Actually Honda started that in 2005, the last towables from Honda after that were the FIT and CR-V, nothing else is towable according to Honda.
Went through that with the CA and WA AG's office and Honda's legal dept. Honda ultimately paid us $2,200 to settle the matter. Luckily we had it in writing on Honda letterhead the our '05 Odyssey was towable four down.
