I see the owners man says to turn key to acc while towing with all four wheels on the ground.

Does it count the miles when being towed? Or is I had an older mitsubishi that I towed from Texas back to Michigan and, hehe it had 1100 more miles on it when I got it home.

I'm thinking on the newer cars the electronics is off? So no mileage counting if its towed?

The Mitsu was a 91 mighty max. Rear wheel drive, stick shift. Key off, on a tow dolly with rear wheels on ground.

Just looking into the possibility of towing my 2011 xB...

I would not tow anything with a FWD vehicle. For that matter I would not tow with IRS either. They have enough tranny problems without drgging something behind them.
Wow you missed the point of this all together

Do you run in neutral, or depress the clutch to save the trans?
I run in neutral, and, max tow speed of 55, also every 200 miles stop and idle the xB for 5 minutes to spin the oil, as per Roadmaster.
