For information on towing points for 1970-77 cars, see the chart. On 1978-82 cars, tow using the tie down tabs located under front and rear bumpers.
The following precautions should be observed when Towing the Vehicle:
- Always place the transmission in Neutral and release the parking brake.
- Models equipped with automatic transmissions, except 1974-77 models, may be towed with the transmission in Neutral, but only for short distances at speeds below 20 mph. On 1974-77 models, or if the transmission is inoperative, either tow the car with the rear wheels off the ground or disconnect the drive shaft at the differential end. If you are towing a 1978 or later car with an automatic transmission, you may tow the car for up to 50 miles and at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour.
- If the rear axle is defective, the car must be towed with its rear wheels off the ground.
- Always turn the steering column lock to ON and then return to ACC. This prevents the steering column from locking.
