Anybody know if there is a problem towing a manual Passat beyond an RV? Have you done it?
How far is it going? It isn't a good idea to tow any car for an extended time on it's drive wheels in neutral. If you have a car dolly (Uhaul), tow the front wheels off the ground. It is bad for the transmission to be driven by the wheels. I have heard of people getting bars to keep the clutch pedal pushed in while the car is in tow. I am not exactly sure about the logic in that, but I would go into the transmission forum and ask the same question..
