The front or rear towing hook(s) should only be used in an emergency situation, such as pulling the vehicle from a ditch, snowbank or mud.
WITH MANUAL TRANSMISSION
If the transmission, rear axle and steering system are not damaged, the vehicle may be towed on all four wheels. If any of these components are damaged, use a towing dolly.
WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
If excessive vehicle damage or other conditions prevent towing a vehicle with its rear (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 transmission.
If the transmission or rear axle is inoperative, tow the vehicle with its rear wheels off the ground or have the propeller shaft disconnected.
