Towing 2013 Subaru Outback 4 down
Thanks, that was very helpful.
We also managed to get an email from Subaru and from the dealer. Here it is in case anyone else needs it. It's stupid of them to have nothing in the new manuals about flat towing manual trans four down other than emergency.
Dear Ms. Gerhardt,
Thank you for visiting the Subaru Website and for your interest in our products.
AWD Subaru vehicles with manual transmission can be towed with all four wheels on the ground and the transmission in neutral.
AWD Subaru vehicles with automatic transmission can only be towed with all four wheels OFF of the ground.
Therefore, since you are interested in towing a Subaru behind your motorhome, we would suggest purchasing a manual transmission Subaru.
When towing a manual transmission Subaru behind your motorhome, you would want the transmission in neutral and the key in the 'ACC' position. As all new models are equipped with digital odometers, mileage will not accumulate when being towed.
Thanks for the opportunity to be of assistance. If you need any future assistance, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-SUBARU3.
