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 (ManualMode) is recommended. See Manual Mode for more information. Use a lower gear if the transmission shifts too often.

For vehicles with a manual transmission, it is better not to use the highest gear.

- 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.
