Emergency towing

For emergency towing when no commercial


For emergency towing when no commercial tow vehicle is available, attach a tow cable, chain or strap to one of the towing hooks under the front/rear of your vehicle. Be very careful when attempting this procedure when the vehicle is on any unpaved surface to avoid damage to your vehicle.

Nor should towing be attempted if the wheels, drive train, axles, steering or brakes are damaged.

Before towing, be sure the transaxle is in neutral and the key is in "ACC" (with the engine off) or in the "ON" position (with the engine running). A driver must be in the towed vehicle to steer it and operate the brakes.

NOTE:
To avoid serious damage to your 4WD vehicle, limit the towing to 10 mph and not for more than 1 mile at ANY TIME.
