Towing the vehicle on four wheels

All vehicles

WARNINGS:
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.

CAUTIONS:
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.

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

Vehicles with automatic transmission

CAUTIONS:
Do not tow your vehicle faster than 50 km/h (30 mph) or further than 50 kilometres (30 miles). On vehicles with a 6DCT450 transmission, do not tow your vehicle faster than 30 km/h (18 mph).

If the stated speed or distance is to be exceeded the drive wheels must be lifted clear of the ground.

In the event of a mechanical failure of the transmission the drive wheels must be lifted clear of the ground.

Do not tow your vehicle backwards.

Select neutral when your vehicle is being towed.
