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 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.

○ Do not use the Fuel Saver Mode 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.

○ For vehicles with the Ultra Rear Parking Assist (URPA) system, turn the system off when towing a trailer. If the tow bar is installed while not towing a trailer, change the URPA system to the “Tow Bar” setting. See Ultrasonic Parking Assist on page 9‑43 for more information.
