That is not so, it blows me away how little the Kia Dealers and shop foremen know about the cars they sale and service. both the 2014 and the 2015 Kia Soul 6 speed standard trans are 4 down towable, I called Kia in GA and was told they were and was sent the TSB on the 2014 and later got the TSB on the 2015, I repeat they are towable with the Standard 6 speed trans. I attached the TSB.

Many of the foreign cars were towable 4-down, but in the last year or two, their numbers are diminishing quickly. As a matter of fact, I think someone pointed out in the last towing guide that there are no longer any foreign 2016 vehicles that are still towable.

This is really limiting the choices, especially for anyone who wants to tow something that will hold four adults comfortably. I think tow dollies are going to become more popular. Maybe they'll start making some higher quality, lighter weight units, sized to fit the smaller cars.
