I have been towing a 2006. Honda civic with automatic transmission for the last 3 years without an issue. I do run it through the gears every 300 to 400 miles.

We have a 11 2 door auto wrangler. What about the locking wheel, or does it have one? And lights and brakes? Been hauling the toads so far.

We've been flat towing our '09 Saturn Vue(automatic) for 3yrs. of fulltiming now with no problems at all. I did add a fuse switch that I mounted on the side of the console, so I wouldn't have to pull the fuse everytime we hit the road. But it's a simple procedure.

Jeep Grand Cherokee. Easy to put in tow mode, luxury ride plus can still do minor off roading. Love mine.

Would enjoy a bigger tow car but have Harley on lift on back of MH so tow car weight limited.

Auto or standard tranny

Are there any advantages/disavantages in the type of transmission? Any particular autos with either that are best?
