Mileage

I plan on using my 2014 CR-V as a 4 down toad. Will it accumulate mileage when towing it?

I would check with honda if they advise it. Normally you would do that kind of thing with a manual transmission which isn't available on a crv

From Honda

Automatic Transmission
When preparing to tow your CR-V,
check the transmission fluid level
(see page
207 ). Maintaining the

correct level is very important.
Do

not overfill.
Do the following every

day immediately before you begin
towing. Follow the procedure exactly.
Otherwise, severe automatic
transmission damage will occur.
Start the engine.
Press on the brake pedal. Shift the
lever through all the positions (P,
R, N, D, 2,1)
Shift to D, then to N. Let the
engine run for three minutes, then
turn off the engine.
Release the parking brake.
Leave the ignition switch in
ACCESSORY (I) so the steering
wheel does not lock. Make sure
the radio and any items plugged
into the accessory power sockets
are turned off so you do not run
down the battery.
Extended Towing
If you tow more than 300 miles (500
km) in one day, you should repeat
the above procedure at least every
300 miles (500 km), (when you stop
for fuel, etc.)

The steering system can be damaged if
the steering wheel is locked. Leave the
ignition switch in Accessory (I), and
make sure The steering wheel turns
freely before you begin towing.
Improper towing preparation will
damage the transmission. Follow the
above procedure exactly. If you cannot
shift the transmission or start the
engine, your vehicle must be
transported on a flat-bed or trailer.
If you low your CR-V and it is
equipped with an automatic
transmission, replace the
transmission fluid every two years or
30,000 miles (50,000 km), whichever
comes first.
Driving


Of course this doesn't answer your original question about miles running (or not),

I don't think it will accrue mileage unless it is started and the engine and computer are up and running.
