I own a volkswagon gulf tdi 2015. Owners manual says not to

Customer Question

I own a volkswagon gulf tdi 2015. Owners manual says not to tow anything. I own a teardrop trailer 1700 lbs 200 lbs trailer hitch weight. It has a 6 speed auto transmittion. I can lock the transmittion in 5th or 4th gear going down the highway. What do you think, will it work without hurting my car. I know I have to watch transmittion temp.

How much distance and how often will you be towing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Maybe once a year up to 2000 miles. From arkansas to all parts north and west.

I figured I would have to keep my speed down to 60 or 55 depending on the gear I used.

The volkswagon is a gulf sportswagon.
