Flat towing 2015 Fiesta

Just bought a 31' Class C. I need to get a car to flat tow. Can a 2015 Ford Fiesta automatic be flat towed?

Yes... look in the owners manual, there is a procedure to place the transmission in tow mode and no transmission pump is required.

Also considering buying a 2011 Honda CRV 4wd. Does a 4wd work well?

All CR-V's through 2014 are towable.

I am off by a few years, am towing a 2012 Fiesta, as above do not even know its there other that its seen in the back up camera. To set up it very easy, directions are in the owners manual which you can find on line.

2015 Fiesta
Anyone towing this vehicle have any transmission problems?

There were reports of problems with transmission in earlier models 2011 for example.

Thanks
Tom

Look at Fiesta manual tran. VERY happy with ours. Setup is piece of cake. Over 10,000 mikes towing on ours. Sometimes I forget I'm not driving a sports car.
