We pull a Ford Flex AWD and tow it at 70-75 even though I read, much after the fact, that max speed was 65. No problems, and really don't know what could happen in 5-10 more mph that couldn't happen at 65. JMO Randy

I have towed my 2012 Honda Fit, auto trans, over 6,000 miles. Very well designed car. And at around 2,000 lbs., easy to tow. I have to turn on the camera to make sure it is still there.....

I tow a 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 extended cab 4WD with the M&G braking system. Takes about two minutes to hook it up, put the xfer case in neutral and off we go.

We just purchased a Jeep Cherokee Trail Hawk, if you get a Jeep be sure it has Active Drive II or you will not be able to tow it! Trail Hawk comes with Active Drive II I think it is optional on the other models but it is a must have for flat towing.

How is the FJ as a toad? I am setting my 2011 up for towing now and am opting for the aux tranny pump by Remco instead of the disconnect. Same 4wd AT.

That's NOT a completely true statement.

Do not try to flat tow a Honda CRV or any Honda with a CVT Transmission. If you do you will be buying a new transmission.

Let me second the vote on the Cadillac SRX. We flat-tow a 2012. Here's the setup: Lift the shifter boot by pulling up on the back. Press the button that is the upper right of the shifter. Move the shifter to Neutral. That's it - the whole shebang. No fuses, nothing.

The only 'restriction' is that GM wants you to not exceed 65MPH (OK, downhill I may push that a little) and run the engine at the end of the day to to circulate and recharge from any braking system drain. One thing to keep in mind: Once you press that little button, 95% of the electrical is disconnected. If you are going to use an accessory plug brake, the only hot outlet is in the very back. I use an accessory extension cord that I just leave plugged in and run along the floorboards to the front seat.

This is also an easy car to rig for seat-based brake systems, as you can electrically adjust both the seat position AND the brake pedal position. Makes setup a piece of cake. And the Blue Ox plates and pins are really hidden well in the grill.

We tow a Chevy Captiva and a Silverado 2500 when taking the golf cart....most auto Chevys can be flat towed...Traverse, and Equinox...the newer Chevy trucks need to be 4 Wheel drive...I stop about every 200 miles and crank it and shift the transmission...then off we go again...I think my manuals say stay under 65 MPH

I think I read in the Escapees magazine recently, that the new Fit isn't towable four down. Not sure....point is to see something official in writing and in your possession like the owner's manual or a letter from the manufacturer in case you run into warranty issues. Even the lists from FMCA and Motorhome Magazine are corrected sometimes. This is no matter what you decide to tow. Do the Remco solutions keep any warranty intact on the toad? Like the Lube Pump or the Axle Lock device?
