Pulling a Trailer

Here are some important points:

  • . There are many laws, including speed limit restrictions that apply to trailering. Check for legal requirements with state or provincial police.
  • . Do not tow a trailer at all during the first 1 600 km (1,000 mi) the new vehicle is driven. The engine 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.
  • . Vehicles with automatic transmissions can tow in D (Drive) but M (Manual Mode) is recommended. See Manual Mode  for more information. Use a lower gear if the transmission shifts too often. . Use the cruise control when towing.
  • . 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.
