List of Flat Towable Cars

I found the site below in my search to see if my car is flat towable. I thought it might be useful for anyone who is also unsure. Go to the link and click on the "Dinghy Guide" on the right of the page that matches the year of your car. Hope this helps...

Re: List of Flat Towable Cars

Yes! I've pretty much treated my 08 AT Fit as FASable based on the restrictions in the manual for max speed and distance. But I don't FAS routinely due to its battery limits and the key start battery draw, especially at night.

Re: List of Flat Towable Cars

Does flat towable mean it has to be towed on a flat bed?

Re: List of Flat Towable Cars

Flat-towable means it can be towed with all drive wheels on the road

Re: List of Flat Towable Cars

Does anyone engine off coast a Ford Focus? The owners manual (at least for the 2001-2007 models) says that flat towing is fine for the manual transmission but also says not to turn off the engine while moving (especially at high speed) to "make sure the catalytic converter and other emission control components continue to work properly". Would it still be ok to EOC the manual transmission Focus?

Re: List of Flat Towable Cars

Absolutely, you can EOC that Focus to your heart's delight. And please do, as long as you are very familiar with the processa and are 100% comfortable with it.
