I tow my 09 Accord auto it has the 4 cylinder if it matters. I know if something happens Honda will not cover it , but I did not feel like going and buying a new car. I make sure to make my last shift from D to N run for 3 minutes. I do this before towing every day and if I run more than 8 hours I do it again. I pull no fuses. About 5,000 miles so far but things seem fine.

I took a look at the Honda repair manual and FWIW there's one gizmo that stays in two unique positions when reverse isn't last versus is last. I wish I could win the lottery so I could care less 'bout transmission rebuild costs and just roll the dice!

Accord sold. Wrangler Unlimited bought

So rather than roll the dice we sold the Accord and replaced it with a 2012 Wrangler unlimited so no problems for us. Just more roads to travel⚠

Old thread, I know, but we just put about 20 hours of flat towing on our 2012 Accord V6 and all was perfectly fine.

I do have one question however that might be best served in a new thread, I'm not sure......

Any input on how long it would be safe to sit in a rest stop without going through the whole shifting sequence again. There must be some kind of acceptable period of time that would be considered ok before you have to "re-lube" the transmission. Obviously stopping at a stop sign isn't too long, but how about a 30 minutes rest stop?

Any thoughts, or practical experience?

Thanks!

Tom

I run engine and run thru gears with any stop 10 minutes or longer. Just to be safe. Stop for lunch, DW makes lunch I run thru gears. Stop for fuel, I pump fuel DW runs thru gears. Works for us.
