Question Anyone towing a late model Honda Accord?

Is there anyone out there who is towing a late model Honda ACCORD (2009-2012) who would be interested in sharing thier experiences?

We have towed 2000 Accord for 10 years and it is getting a little tired and I would like to upgrade to a newer model but don't seem to be able to find any reliable information our there.

Thanks in a advance.

You can tow anything you want, but if something happens repairs are up to you. Honda only approves and warrants the CR-V and Fit as towable four down. It there's any factory warranty left you would lose it on the engine and trans if towing four down. And the shop people do look for towbar attachments and wiring added.

I tow a 2009 no problems. Just make sure your last shift is from D to N let it idle 3 minutes. I do this every 8 hours or at start up in morning.
I would not go out and buy a new one to tow ,but that is what I had and everyone told me it was just because Honda did not want to go through all the testing to warranty it. Couple times across country so far good.

That is the procedure I use for my 2000 Honda. Tell me what tow bar and base plates do you have on yours?

Roadmaster Falcon 2 and the Roadmaster base plate . No chopping of grill just a little trimming under car. Very little to see when not in use. I think the brackets are called EZ series.

Thanks I have an all terain towbar from roadmaster myself. I have heard some have had problems with the battery going dead on long tows. Have you had that problem? I know on my 2000 Honda, as long as I turn the fan off and make sure the radio is off there is no other drain but the Brake Buddy. I have never had a dead battery issue.
