Front Wheel Drive Models

To prevent the bumper from deforming, these vehicles cannot be towed by a wrecker using sling-type equipment. If these vehicles require towing, use a wheel lift or flat bed equipment. It is recommended that the vehicle be towed from the front if a flat bed is not available.

Manual transaxle vehicles may be towed from the rear provided that the transaxle is in Neutral and the driveline has not been damaged. The steering wheel must be clamped in the straight-ahead position with a steering wheel clamping device designed for towing service use.


CAUTION
Do not use the steering column lock to secure the front wheel position for towing.

Automatic transaxle vehicles may be towed on the front wheels at speeds not to exceed 30 mph (50 km/h) for a distance not to exceed 18 miles (30 km). If these limits can not be met, then the front wheels must be placed on a tow dolly.
