The rear towing hook should only be used in an emergency situation, such as pulling the vehicle from a ditch, snowbank or mud.

The center differential must NEVER be in the "Lock" position when the vehicle is being towed.

If excessive vehicle damage or other conditions prevent towing the vehicle with its drive wheels up, use wheel dollies. With all four wheels on the ground, the vehicle should only be towed forward . In this case, the vehicle cannot be towed at a speed exceeding 35 mph (56 Km/h) for more than 50 miles (80 Km) without danger of damaging the transaxle.

Do not tow the vehicle backward with the front wheels on the ground, as this could damage the transaxle's internal parts. Do not start or run the engine while the vehicle is being towed. If the towing speed must exceed 35 mph (56 km/h), or the towing distance must exceed 50 miles (80 km), be sure to either place the front wheels on a dolly or raise them off the ground.
