We looked at buying a 2013 Pilot because we had read on other forums that they can be flat-towed. The dealer informed us that people do it all the time, but that it is not recommended by the maufacturer and therefore voids the warranty. Apparently, there is a sequence of shifting into drive, then reverse, etc., that people use to flat tow.
