I never said the car couldn't tow, but just as you stated, the manual does not recommend it (not rated). I have a hitch on my car and it bolts very nicely to the frame, but I only use it for a bike rack. I also said that I have not confirmed that insurance wouldn't cover you, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did not. Insurance companies love to not pay and this would be a good out for them if you were involved in an accident while towing.
