Hello everybody. I hear once in a while that people with manual transmissions drive on flat or downhill areas with their vehicle in neutral (which I know is illegal but that's not the point)
So people are going average or above average speeds this way, correct?
At the same time, when I look in towing guides etc, it always shows that an RWD vehicle that is towed on a trailer that only supports the front wheels can only be driven at 35mph in neutral for only a few miles (I think 50?)
My question is, are people damaging their transmissions when they run their vehicle in neutral? Since you're not "supposed" to because of the 35mph limit? Or are the vehicle companies just putting some padding on themselves to avoid lawsuits?
