  • Do not flat tow (will damage internal transmission components).
  • Do not use a tow dolly (will damage drivetrain components).

2. FWD vehicles equipped with automatic transmission (including CVT and Hybrid):

  • Do not flat tow (will damage internal transmission components)
  • An appropriate vehicle tow dolly must be placed under the vehicle’s front wheels.

3. RWD vehicles equipped with automatic transmission (including Hybrid):

  • Do not flat-tow (will damage internal transmission components).
  • An appropriate dolly must be placed under the rear wheels.

4.  2WD vehicles equipped with a manual transmission:

  • Always flat-tow with the manual transmission in neutral.
  • Always flat-tow a manual transmission vehicle facing forward.
  • Maximum speed while flat towing: 60 mph.
  • After towing for 500 miles, stop. Start and idle the engine with the transmission in neutral for two minutes to avoid damaging the transmission.
