Questions About 2018 Honda Civic’s Transmission

  • How much can I tow in a Honda Civic? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Civic towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
