Push-Starting

Do not push-start your Mazda.

WARNING:
Never tow a vehicle to start it: Towing a vehicle to start it is dangerous. The vehicle being towed could surge forward when its engine starts, causing the two vehicles to collide. The occupants could be injured.

CAUTION:
Do not push-start a vehicle that has a manual transaxle. It can damage the emission control system.

NOTE:
You can't start a vehicle with an automatic transaxle by pushing it.
