We have towed a Suzuki Samurai, SideKick 4-w/d many,many miles, never stopped to run through the gears and have towed at speeds greater than the limits many times and never had problems.Factory gear oil in the manual trans & transfer cases. In '04 we bought a '03 Suzuki Grand Vitara 4/wd. auto trans. and have been towing it the same way. Just like a Ford truck, they are tough little cars.

In California if you're towing ANYTHING you're limited by law to 55 mph or less. Of course there's a ton of people who have been raised to believe that the Vehicle Code is just a bunch of vague suggestions that can be ignored...

There are exceptions outside the state of Ca., "A man has got to do, what a mans got to do."
