Flat 4 Wheel tow an 07 civic or tow dolly?

okay so I know some people say yes and some people say no to flat 4 wheel towing a newer automatic HONDA civic, but a couple of weeks ago on our way up to PA we actually saw a newer "automatic" civic being flat 4 wheel towed, I called my friend who is a HONDA mechanic and he said it had the same basic trans as a CRV which HONDA says is flat towable and his service manager even says yes it should be flat towable as long as you do the HONDA gear cycle every 300 miles or every 6-8 hours. Does anybody have any experience towing one of these automatic civics? Or should we just get a tow dolly? Any help would be great we already have a tow bar and just need the brakets. Thanks.....

I would go by whatever the owners manual says. Could be a very expensive lesson.

Lots of people are towing Hondas - I have a buddy who does it with an '07 Accord Accord. But if you have a transmission failure, the Honda warranty won't cover it if the find out it has been towed 4-down. That's your only risk.
