Your car is a AWD.. I don't recomend Dually truck to tow it. With a dually 2 tires will stay on the road. and you have no choice to desengage the AWD. system.
Bucause you will damage the Transfercase. and made the transsmission. work dry.
The best way is a Flat bed.
Is just my suggestion.
Thank you for use fixya..

Yes it can. So long as the front wheels are perfectly straight and secured in this position and I don't mean secured with the steering lock as that will most likely break when your car hits a pot hole. Also, by towing with all wheels, you're adding extra mileage onto your car because the speed sensor is built into the front wheels (this amount will be considered negligible).

If you have a four wheel drive Sportage, you will destroy your transmission by towing the vehicle with the rear wheels on the road and the engine not running. The problem is that the wheels will spin the transmission, causing wear on it since there is no transmission oil flowing while the vehicle engine is not running. You can, however, remove the rear driveshaft from the Sportage and that will allow you to safely use a tow dolly, since the rear wheels will be free spinning.

YOU'VE burnt the transmission up. 2 wheel drives are required for the drive train be off the ground when towing.. drive shaft removed when towing from front OK as long as driveshafts removed. when towing with rear wheels on the ground and drive shaft still installed will burn the transmission pump out.;you will need another transmission,or sometimes a new transmission pump will repair it,although it will still show the additional mile that the vehicle was towed . thank you for choosing fixya.com
