WARNING   WARNING:  Do not exceed 60 mph (100 km/h). Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.
WARNING   WARNING:  The rear tire pressures must be increased by 3 psi (.2 bar) above specification. Do not exceed the maximum pressure stated on the tire sidewall. This could cause serious personal injury.
WARNING   WARNING:  Do not exceed the maximum gross vehicle weight stated on the vehicle identification plate. Failure to follow this instruction could result in personal injury.
WARNING   WARNING:  Towing trailers beyond the maximum recommended gross trailer weight exceeds the limit of your vehicle and could result in engine damage, transmission damage, structural damage, loss of vehicle control, vehicle rollover and personal injury.
WARNING   WARNING:  Do not exceed the maximum vertical load on the tow ball. Failure to follow this instruction could result in the loss of control of your vehicle, personal injury or death.
WARNING   WARNING:  The anti-lock brake system does not control the trailer brakes.

When towing a trailer:
  • Obey country specific regulations for towing a trailer.
  • Do not exceed 60 mph (100 km/h) even if a country allows higher speeds under certain conditions.
  • Place loads as low as possible and central to the axle of your trailer. If you are towing with an unloaded vehicle, you should place the load in your trailer toward the front, within the maximum vertical load, as this gives the best stability.   See   Capacities and Specifications
  • The trailer vertical weight on the tow ball is essential for the driving stability of your vehicle and trailer.
  • The vertical weight on the tow ball should be at least 4% of the trailer weight and not exceed the maximum permissible weight.   See   Capacities and Specifications
  • Reduce speed immediately if the trailer shows any sign of swaying.   See   Towing a Trailer
  • Use a low gear when descending a steep slope.
Note:   We recommend that you use a trailer safety cable. Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions when you use a trailer safety cable.
Note:   The maximum permissible trailer vertical weight on the trailer identification plate is the trailer manufacturer’s testing value.The vehicle maximum permissible trailer vertical weight may be lower.
The stability of your vehicle-to-trailer combination depends on the quality of the trailer.
 Towing a trailer changes the handling characteristics of your vehicle and increases stopping distances.Adapt your speed and driving behaviour to the load of the trailer.
The gross train weight stated on the vehicle identification plate applies for road gradients up to 12% and altitudes up to 3,281 ft (1,000 m) when towing a trailer. In mountainous regions the engine performance decreases due to lower air density with increasing altitude. In high altitude regions above 3,281 ft (1,000 m), you should reduce the stipulated maximum permitted gross train weight by 10% for every additional 3,281 ft (1,000 m).
Note:   Not all vehicles are suitable or approved to have a tow bar fitted.Ask an authorized dealer for more information.
