Hodda Replacement

It seems that the time has come to investigate replacing my 1999 Honda EX as a four down toad. I sure hate this state of events because the Honda has been such a great toad and general car as well.

I don't want to purchase a new vehicle and would appreciate recommendations from you about good used toads.

I see lots of Jeep toads, but I am concerned that they seem to have lots of service problems.

Based on hanging around this forum, I'd say the Honda CRV is near the top of the list for most popular toads. According to what I've read, some or all Honda models made after 2014 are not towable four-down. Don't take my word for it, though.

We have a 2009 Honda Fit Sport for a toad. It's a nice car- more room inside than it would seem from the outside.

The 2014 and earlier Honda CRV is 4-down towable, the 2015 CRV is NOT towable due to Honda going to a CVT type transmission. The 2015 HRV with 6 spd manual transmission is also 4 down towable

At the 2005 model year Honda retracted four down towing for ALL Honda's but the CR-V. We had bought a 2005 Ody in Dec '04 after getting it in writing, on Honda letterhead, that it was towable four down. After some back ans forth with Honda legal dept they cut us a check for about $2,200 to pay us for the towing equipment we had installed. Used the money to buy a KK-460 dolly and used it for a couple years, (till it was out of warranty after the extension). Now towing it four down with no problems other than having to run a charge line to the battery.
I was thinking of replacing the Ody with a 2016 CR-V, but Honda lost my business now.

My 07 Honda Accord is towable 4 down. Several thousand miles experience. But we must warm up eng/trans, then go from Neutral to Drive back to Neutral and leave it in Acc. I did hook up a power wire to the battery. The 1 time I didn't guess what wouldn't start.
