A (CVT) Continuously Variable Transmission<>    B (M/T) Manual transmission

● Never tow Continuously Variable Transmission

● Never tow Continuously Variable Transmission (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 Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) models with the front wheels on towing dollies, or when towing manual transmission (M/T) models with the front wheels on the ground.

– Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, and secure the steering wheel in a straight-ahead position with a rope or similar device. Never secure the steering wheel by turning the ignition switch to the LOCK position.

This may damage the steering lock mechanism (for models equipped with steering lock mechanism).

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

● When towing Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) or manual transmission (M/T) models with the rear wheels on the ground (if you do not use towing dollies): Always release the parking brake.

● Observe the following restricted towing speeds and distances for manual transmission (M/T) models only.

– Speed: Below 50 MPH (80 km/h) – Distance: Less than 50 miles (80 km)
