After reading the 2014 guide for manual transmissions, I decide to go ahead and purchase a manual Subaru today. Appreciate the heads up. We almost laughed when we started our conversation with Subaru salesman--"so you intend towing the vehicle behind your RV". He continued to say 2014 is perfect year to flat tow. The vehicle was "Subaru certified vehicle". I asked if flat towing voided the warranty--he stated no. Purchase was made in Leesburg FL. Looking forward to pulling it behind our RV in October.
