Pulling a Trailer

Here are some important points:

• There are many laws, including speed limit restrictions that apply to trailering. Check for legal requirements.

• Do not tow a trailer at all during the first 1 600 km (1,000 mi) the new vehicle is driven. The engine, axle, or other parts could be damaged.

• During the first 800 km (500 mi) that a trailer is towed, do not drive over 80 km/h (50 mph) and do not make starts at full throttle.

This reduces wear on the vehicle.

• The vehicle can tow in D (Drive).

Use a lower gear if the transmission shifts too often.

• Obey speed limit restrictions. Do not drive faster than the maximum posted speed for trailers, or no more than 90 km/h (55 mph), to reduce wear on the vehicle.
