We have a 14 Forester and an 11 Outback and was advised by the dealer not to tow. If we transport we must be four up...on a trailer.
You are totally wrong, but right also.
Any vehicle with CVT cannot be towed 4 down but the Forester still has a manual transmission option, which can be towed. Unfortunately, Subaru decide to only offer the 2015 Outback with CVT so that cannot be towed. Just like the 2015 Honda CRV.
