Recreational Towing - Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) Models

DO NOT flat tow this vehicle. Damage to the drivetrain will result.

Recreational towing (for front-wheel drive models) is allowed ONLY if the front wheels are OFF the ground.

This may be accomplished using a tow dolly or vehicle trailer. If using a tow dolly, follow this procedure: 1. Properly secure the dolly to the tow vehicle, following the dolly manufacturer's instructions.

2. Drive the front wheels onto the tow dolly.

3. Apply the parking brake. Place the transmission in PARK. Turn the engine OFF.

4. Properly secure the front wheels to the dolly, following the dolly manufacturer's instructions.

5. Turn the ignition to the ON/RUN position, but do not start the engine.

6. Press and hold the brake pedal.

7. Release the parking brake.

8. Turn the ignition OFF, remove the Key Fob, and release the brake pedal.

CAUTION!

  • Towing with the front wheels on the ground will cause severe transmission damage. Damage from improper towing is not covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
  • Ensure that the Electric Park Brake is released, and remains released, while being towed.
