    Has anyone had experience towing with the 2.5L manual? I want to put a hitch on my sedan (against the better judgment of the owners manual) There's a genpu in my town that I see towing sleds occasionally, so I know it can be done. Just a matter on if it's reasonable or not.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
