Towing the vehicle on four wheels - AWD

Switch the ignition on when your vehicle is being towed. The steering lock will engage and the direction indicators and brake lamps will not work if you do not.

The brake servo and the power steering pump do not operate unless the engine is running. Press the brake pedal harder and allow for increased stopping distances and heavier steering.

Too much tension in the tow rope could cause damage to your vehicle or the vehicle that is towing.

Do not use a rigid tow bar on the front towing eye.

In the event of a breakdown or a mechanical failure of the transmission your vehicle must be recovered with either ALL wheels on the ground or transported with ALL wheels off the ground.

Drive off slowly and smoothly without jerking the vehicle that is towing.
