Chevy Sonic

Does anyone tow a Sonic all wheels down and what happens if you go over 65mph?

I read that Chevy has reversed themselves that the Sonic can be towed 4 down.

I had a Saturn Vue and now have a Chevy Equinox. Both have a 65 mph limit. GM says transmission damage can occur above 65 mph. That being said, I had the Saturn over 65 on numerous occasions, but only for short periods of time like when passing or when trying to pick up a little speed near the bottom of a hill to have more momentum to make it up the next hill. Never had any transmission problems.

I agree with PAZ and do the same thing (Cadillac SRX). The Tranny oil tends to foam and not lubricate when towing it too fast. Over 65 is too stressful in a coach anyway.
