Yours has 3rd row, right? This might be the reason, as they should have done some trickery to fit them rearmost seats in there, with all that slanted roof.
Also, " not recommended" does not mean "forbidden, will violate warranty".
I pretty much safely bet you will Lexus several times and talk to several different people and you will have several different answers. Or, even call different dealers.
WHy don't you ask this at clublexus? Folks there surely know first hand.
But, personally, considering expense, I'd hammer true answer out of Lexus itself. Personally and via email, so I have traceable record.
I DOUBT you can't tow at all. Maybe reduced capacity, but not at all. Besides, if you must tow - why don't you look at different vehicles? Hybrids are not really made for towing, ya know. And you will have no mpg benefit towing with one anyway. Lots of potential headaches, that's for sure, as rear wheel drive is electric only.
