If your vehicle has a steering wheel lock make sure the ignition is in the accessory or on position when being towed.|
If your vehicle becomes inoperable (without access to wheel dollies, car-hauling trailer, or flatbed transport vehicle), it can be flat-towed (all wheels on the ground, regardless of the powertrain and transmission configuration) under the following conditions:
- Your vehicle is facing forward for towing in a forward direction.
- Place the transmission in position N. If you cannot move the transmission into N, you must override it and enable stay in neutral mode. Failing to do so may result in damage to the transmission. See
- Maximum speed is 35 mph (56 km/h).
- Maximum distance is 50 miles (80 kilometers).
Put your climate control system in recirculated air mode to prevent exhaust fumes from entering the vehicle. See
Follow these guidelines if you have a need for recreational (RV) towing. An example of recreational towing would be towing your vehicle behind a motorhome. We designed these guidelines to prevent damage to your transmission.
Front-wheel Drive Vehicles
Front-wheel drive vehicles CANNOT be flat-towed (all wheels on the ground) as vehicle or transmission damage may occur. It is recommended to tow your vehicle with the front wheels off the ground by using a tow dolly. If you are using a tow dolly, follow the instructions specified by the equipment provider.
All-wheel Drive Vehicles
All-wheel drive vehicles CANNOT be flat-towed (all wheels on the ground) as vehicle or transmission damage may occur. It is recommended to tow your vehicle with all four (4) wheels off the ground such as when using a car-hauling trailer. Otherwise, you cannot recreational tow your vehicle.
