Towing with all wheels on the ground

WARNING


WARNING

● Never turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position while the vehicle is being towed because the steering wheel and the direction of the wheels will be locked.

● Remember that the brake booster and power steering do not function when the engine is not running. Because the engine is turned off, it will take greater effort to operate the brake pedal and steering wheel.

CAUTION

● If transmission failure occurs, transport your vehicle on a flatbed truck.

● Do not run the engine while being towed using this method. Transmission damage could result if the vehicle is towed with the engine running.

● For AT and CVT models, the traveling speed must be limited to less than 20 mph (30 km/h) and the traveling distance to less than 31 miles (50 km). For greater speeds and distances, transport your vehicle on a flat-bed truck.

1. Release the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral.

2. The ignition switch should be in the “Acc” position while the vehicle is being towed.

3. Take up slack in the towline slowly to prevent damage to the vehicle.

WARNING ● Do not drive the vehicle with the clutch disengaged (i.e., when the clutch pedal is depressed) or with the shift lever in the neutral position.
