Towing Honda Civic

I know this subject has been batted around before. Many seem to tow a Civic automatic successfully while others say that if Honda says you can't then you shouldn't.

Remco says they have a large number of customers doing so without problem, which I put quite a bit of faith in.

Any further updates on this topic?

The safest and least expensive is an Acme Tow Dolly. IMHO

My Civic is old, a 2001 with 200,000 miles on it. No problems with it. I go through the tow prep sequence every time I stop for fuel.

Start engine, run it through all the gears with about 10 seconds in each position,

P-R-N-D-D2-D1, then back from D1-D2-D-N. Stop it in "N"

Leave it running in "N" for about 15 seconds, then shut it off.

IMPORTANT - The sequence MUST be run in this order, particularly the last step, from D to N. NOT R to N.

Evidently this sets up some valvology in the tranny that allows fluid to circulate a little.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
