Emergency Towing  
Call a professional towing service if you need to tow your vehicle.  
1Emergency Towing  
Flatbed equipment  
The operator loads your vehicle on the back of a truck.  
This is the best way to transport your vehicle.  
Trying to lift or tow your vehicle by the bumpers will  
cause serious damage. The bumpers are not designed  
to support the vehicle's weight.  
2WD models  
Improper towing such as towing behind a  
motorhome or other motor vehicle can damage the  
Wheel lift equipment  
The tow truck uses two pivoting arms that go under the front tires and lift them off  
the ground. The rear tires remain on the ground. This is an acceptable way to  
tow your vehicle.  
Never tow your vehicle with just a rope or chain.  
It is very dangerous since ropes or chains may shift  
from side to side or break.  
2WD models  
Make sure the parking brake is released. If you  
cannot release the parking brake, your vehicle must  
be transported by the flatbed equipment.
