I knew that you had to tow AWD vehicles with all wheels on or off the ground, but I just noticed something else. You are supposed to set the DCCD all the way back. This is open mode right?

WRX-STI
STI vehicles with 6 Speed Manual Transmissions can be towed with all four wheels on the ground and the transmission in neutral. In addition, STI vehicles with 6 Speed Manual Transmissions require that the Driver's Control Center Differential (DCCD) is set in manual mode and the DCCD control dial set to the furthest rearward position.

I just saw an episode of the peoples court about an all wheel drive vehicle (I didnt catch what) was towed by the front wheels and caused $3000 worth of tranny damage. The towing company said "they didnt know" you couldnt tow an all wheel drive vehicle by just the front wheels..

and i bet they paid for it

I think if my car ever got towed with out my knowledge I would have it flat bedded to a dealer to analyze the AWD system. Any damage would result in a lawsuit. Too many idiots out there.

Can you imagine the damage? It would probably be a very expensive mistake for a towing company to make. They make a few hundred from the tow and have to pay back almost $4k-$6k, plus labour, plus loss of use.
