Towing recommended by NISSAN

NISSAN recommends that your vehicle be towed with the driving (front) wheels off the ground or place the vehicle on a flat bed truck as illustrated.

CAUTION:

CAUTION:

- Never tow CVT models with the front wheels on the ground or four wheels on the ground (forward or backward), as this may cause serious and expensive damage to the transmission. If it is necessary to tow the vehicle with the rear wheels raised always use towing dollies under the front wheels.

- When towing with the front wheels on towing dollies:

Place the ignition switch to the OFF position, and secure the steering wheel in a straight-ahead position with a rope or similar device. For models with a steering wheel lock mechanism: Never secure the steering wheel by placing the ignition switch to the LOCK position. This may damage the steering lock mechanism.

Move the shift selector to the N (Neutral) position.

- When towing CVT models with the rear wheels on the ground (if you do not use towing dollies): Always release the parking brake.

- When towing CVT models with the front wheels on the ground, dollies must be used or place the vehicle on a flat bed truck.
