In an earlier post I believe he stated that he bought an Acme dolly and is not flat towing.
The Acme EZE Tow Dolly mandates that the steering wheel must be unlocked
. I have one and tow a Sonata on it and that steering wheel will not lock.
There are other considerations when flat towing if the owner's manual says to not flat tow, not just whether it seems to tow well and runs at the other end. For example, some earlier Ford vehicles mandate that the automatic transmission fluid level must be lowered or transmission damage could occur.
Those initially said they could be flat towed then a revision came out and said they had to have the transmission fluid level lowered and I think a modified dipstick was provided. I'd guess the fluid was getting blown out of the dipstick and then the transmission was running too low but do not know for certain.
Others say to run the vehicle XX minutes every XX hours to circulate transmission fluid.
