Saturn Astra

Is anyone toading (is that a word?) a 2008 Saturn Astra manual 5 speed? I am finding conflicting information on this rig as a TOAD. Thanks!

We are not towing one but when we were shopping for a toad we inquired about the Astra. At that time they said the manual could be towed four down, but the automatic could not.'

We ended up with the 2008 Vue as we did not want a manual transmission. If you have the manual for the car it should be in there.

The manual says no for both auto and manual. Blue ox and Remco say it is okay with the manual transmission. Seems to be a lot of conflicting information from Saturn mechanics as to whether it is okay or not.

According to Remco, the 5 speed is towable as is.

According to Remco my 06 & 12 Civics are towable four down. Not according to Honda. I know there are people who do it and have no problems. Personally, I always avoid the problems when they are in writing.
