Toad Vehicles

I have a 2013 KIA Soul, 6 speed. I've seen two KIA Souls being flat towed, unfortunately they were heading in the opposite direction and I couldn't asks them questions. I'd love to know if anyone out there is towing a standard, 6 speed, Soul. If so what if any modification were made, transmission pump or disconnects, and recommendations? We were going to buy a 2015 CRV but Honda changed its transmission and it's no longer flat towable. It seems they've chosen to abandon the RV world. Thanks, Guy

A friend of mine is a Kia Mechanic at Lou Fusz Kia in St. Louis. He says that all years manual trans Souls are ok 4-down towing. There is nothing in the owners manual saying so, but they have a service bulletin that outlines it. He's busy right now, but he will look up the TSB number in a little while.

Tim, Thank you. I've written KIA and they've never reply. I'd really appreciate the TSB number when time permits. We're finally going full time and I'm tired of using the tow dolly. Getting old I guess.
