Up through the 2004 model year Honda didn't officially allow anything but the CR-V to be towed four down. At that time the rest were "we don't know of any reason not to but be sure and follow the recommended towing procedure" (same as the CR-V is).
Then in 2005 the started allowing only the CR-V and a few of the Pilots. We bought our '05 Ody under the written promise that it was towable four down. Honda later paid us about $2,200 in repayment for what we spent on getting it ready to tow four down.
In 2008 Honda said the 2007 and newer Fit's were towable four down.
Now it's still only the Fit and CR-V.
However, if you do tow four down you probably void any warranty if you have any left and and service policy too as you didn't follow Honda's recommendations.
I've towed our Ody both ways, going to CA and AZ four down cost me a front end alignment and various new chips in the paint, going back to dolly towing.
You can pretty much tow anything you want, just remember that you will void any factory warranty and probably any service policy you might have.
