I told him it was a manual it should be ok to tow the other way but he wanted to do it that way. He was pretty professional and seemed to know his **** so I just let him. Made sure to check the clearance under the front bumper.
After phone calls with the service manager and salesman went nowhere fast I sent a lengthy email to the general sales manager and owner and supposedly they are going to get back to me. The last offer was to pay half.
