Kia Soul, 6 speed manual, hook it up, turn on one switch for SMI brake, turn key on one click with all accessories turned off and head out! Have towed it behind three motor homes for about 17,000 miles with no problems.

. . . We tow a 2011 Honda Element AWD automatic transmission 4 down ( same drivetrain as the CRV & same instructions used for towing the Element as are used on the CRV ) 2011 is last year for the Element. . .Back seats come out ( stayed out all summer when we were Camp Hosting ) so you have a large enclosed area for whatever you can fit in there. . . Have Roadmaster with Stay-In-Play DUO braking system ( recommended by my professional friend as to WHAT he was going to put in ) . .Could not be happier with simplicity of preparation for towing. . .

2016 Chev Sonic automatic, Road master hitch, Brake buddy, have the extra brake bulbs in the lens, so we put the car in N, flip the toggle for the fuse, turn the key to unlock the steering, make sure the E brake is off, do a little S curve as we drive off into the Sunrise.

Suzuki Samurai 4WD (don't remember year), '94 Geo Metro, '92 Geo Tracker 4WD, all with 5 speed manual transmissions. Prior to Tracker we towed a Suzuki Samurai for about 5 years both with and without a Trail Tough disconnect. We've been towing a Tracker for the last 8-10 years both with and without a Remco disconnect. Both vehicles were towed approximately a total of 100k miles over the 15 years we owned them. The Metro was only towed from Southern CA to OR behind the MH we drove it down there to get. All are very light vehicles to tow and the Tracker is very versatile with fuel mileage between 26 and 32 mpg.
