What do you mean "manufacture says no"... is this what your manual says?
I looked on my 2014 Dinghy towing guide from Motorhome Magazine and it doesn't show ANY Mazdas as being 4-down towable.
However, according to Remco, it is towable 4-down with the following restrictions:
- Towable as is with speed and/or distance restrictions. Please see Owner's Manual for confirmation and procedures.
- It is not recommended to tow this vehicle over 65MPH
- When towing for an extended period of time, start the vehicle as often as possible and allow it to run for five minutes to prevent battery drain.
- No formal testing has been done by Remco on either the 5-Speed or 6-speed Manual Transmissions versions of these vehicles. Remco has not heard of any problems arising while towing these vehicles. Please check your Owner's Manual for confirmation and towing procedures if available.
