Help!! Need Info from those who tow the Honda Fit
There is a great deal of conflicting and confusing information concerning whether a Honda Fit, manual shift, can be towed four wheels down. The January issue of the FMCA on 2015 towables indicates that the Honda Fit can be towed. In this forum I have read varying information (see the Honda Toast) post, and elsewhere.
Today, I purchased a 2013 Honda Fit Hatchback, manual transmission. I asked the dealer to check the manual and with the service on whether I could tow this four wheels down and was told that I could. From what I have read in the earlier posts that I alluded to I have become gun shy and do not want to be forced buy a tow dolly. So, what is it with the Honda Fit? Is it towable, four wheels down, with a manual transmission or not? I would really appreciate some quick feedback from those of you who have a Honda Fit, particularly, a 2013 hatchback. I was excited to finally get this vehicle today, but after reading some posts here on IRV2, I don't know.
I was about to purchase a 2013 Ford Fiesta Hatchback, automatic transmission. The Fiesta Owners Manual states on page 171 that the automatic can be towed four wheels down. After reading that page, I called a Ford dealership where I have service done on my Ford motorhome. The service manager told me that the automatic transmissions have presented some issues with regard to towing four wheels down. Thus, I decided not to take a chance.
I then found the 2013 Honda Fit Hatchback that I mentioned above. I was fairly satisfied until I started to see all kinds of contradictory information. W Please, anyone out in forum land that can put my anxieties to rest, I would like to know for sure if I need to think of taking the vehicle back. Thanks, as you can tell from the tone of this post I am a bit desperate.
