Suzuki Grand Vitara Gearbox & Transmission Problems
Are autos or manuals best for being flat towed?
I've done some checking and no one recommends flat towing with an automatic. You really need to totally disconnect the drive system, which means a manual. Many people choose a Suzuki Vitara as it is light and relatively cheap secondhand and also has maximum flexibility when you get to your destination.

The Grand Vitara is a full-time 4WD wagon, so I’d be talking to your dealer and have them check the drive train to the front wheels, and for starters change the oil in the front diff.
