I have a 2011 with the 6 speed automatic. The manual recommends against towing anything - guess I should have looked that up before buying a tow hitch! I have a lightweight (1200 lb) Trillium trailer I want to tow but am afraid the automatic may not be up to the task. Any insights? Are these trannys holding up in general? So far Im really happy with my car- great MPG, acceleration and comfort!
