Pulling a Trailer

Here are some important points:
• There are many laws, including speed limit restrictions that apply to trailering. Check for legal requirements.
• Consider using sway control.
See Towing Equipment on page 9‑51.
• Do not tow a trailer at all during the first 800 km (500 miles) the new vehicle is driven.
The engine, axle, or other parts could be damaged.
• During the first 800 km (500 miles) 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.
See “Tow/Haul Mode” later in this section.
• Obey speed limit restrictions when towing a trailer.
• The vehicle is designed primarily as a passenger and load carrying vehicle. If a trailer is towed, the vehicle will require more frequent maintenance due to the additional load.
