Who says ?? Use to have a 5 seat truck and car pooled with 3 other people, truck was a perfect commuter vehicle, much better then us cramming into one of the guys Accord .. Depends Nothing if Honda says NO TOW, then it's NO TOW!! not it depends .. Here we go... Using European tow ratings to justify their stupidity.. I have said it before and I'll say it again .. we don't live in Europe.. Last time I checked, living in North America (in this case USA) you have to follow the USA specs.. Well aren't you special ..
