Characteristics and
Towing Tips
You can lose control when
towing a trailer if the correct
equipment is not used or the
vehicle is not driven
properly. For example, if the
trailer is too heavy or the
trailer brakes are
inadequate for the load, the
vehicle may not stop as
expected. You and others
could be seriously injured.
The vehicle may also be
damaged, and the repairs
would not be covered by the
vehicle warranty. Pull a
trailer only if all the steps in
this section have been
followed. Ask your dealer for
advice and information
about towing a trailer with
the vehicle.
Driving with a Trailer
Trailering is different than just
driving the vehicle by itself.
Trailering means changes in
handling, acceleration, braking,
durability, and fuel economy.
Successful, safe trailering
takes correct equipment, and
it has to be used properly.
The following information has
many time-tested, important
trailering tips and safety rules.
Many of these are important
for your safety and that of
your passengers. Read this
section carefully before pulling
a trailer.
When towing a trailer:
Become familiar with, and
follow all state and local laws
that apply to trailer towing.
These requirements vary
from state to state.
State laws may require the
use of extended side view
mirrors. If your visibility is
limited or restricted while
towing, install extended side
view mirrors on your vehicle,
even if not required.
Do not tow a trailer during
the first 800 km (500 mi) of
vehicle use to prevent
damage to the engine, axle,
or other parts.
Perform the first oil change
before heavy towing.
Do not drive over 800 km/h
(50 mph) and do not make
starts at full throttle during
the first 800 km (500 mi) of
trailer towing.
Tow in D (Drive). If the
transmission downshifts too
often, a lower gear may be
selected using Manual Mode.
See Manual Mode 0 282.
If equipped, the following
driver assistance features
should be turned off when
towing a trailer:
Adaptive Cruise
Control (ACC)
Super Cruise Control
Park Assist
