Should be 4 down towable...........
Store : Remco

But you really should verify via owners manual (or MFG)

It is. That's why I got it. Manual has directions. Pretty simple and straightforward (on paper). I am just curious about user's actual experience with it.

I have a question about this also. Can anyone that actually knows for a fact

On a manual transmission 2018 Corolla- Does the key FOB need to be in the car while being dinghy towed to avoid the car coming out of accessory mode?

Is there a time limit that the car will remain in accessory mode? Is there any situation where the car will automatically come out of accessory mode?

These questions are not answered in the manual and I get a deer in the headlights look from the Toyota dealer.

Towing the Corolla
Well we've been towing it for a total of about 1000 miles so far. We leave the FOB in the car. Don't know that we need to. It's been towing absolutely fine. However, our longest single day driving has been probably around 200 miles and 4ish hours. I make sure the lights are off (not on auto) and I turn off the screen through settings as to use the least amount of battery as possible. But, honestly, it's been just fine.

Question, on your 2017-2018 Corolla does the steering wheel lock when the car is OFF and key fob removed from vehicle?
