At times, you may want to tow your vehicle behind another vehicle such as a recreational vehicle (RV), a truck, or another car. Before the vehicle is towed a few steps must be taken:



The front wheels must be placed on a dolly
 
Set the parking brake
 
Turn the ignition key to OFF to unlock the steering wheel
 
Clamp the steering wheel in a straight ahead position with a suitable device
 
Release the parking brake
 

When towing your vehicle behind another vehicle a few precautions must be taken:



Do not tow your vehicle at a speed faster than 55 mph (90 km/h) or the vehicle can be damaged
 
Do not tow your vehicle at a speed faster than 55 mph (90 km/h) if you have a manual transaxle
