Towing Description

We recommend that towing be done only


We recommend that towing be done only by an Authorized Mazda Dealer or a commercial tow-truck service.

Proper lifting and towing are necessary to prevent damage to the vehicle.

Government and local laws must be followed.

A towed vehicle usually should have its drive wheels (rear wheels) off the ground.

If excessive damage or other conditions prevent this, use wheel dollies.

CAUTION:

Do not tow the vehicle pointed forward with driving wheels on the ground. This may cause internal damage to the transmission.

CAUTION:
Do not tow with sling-type equipment. This could damage your vehicle. Use wheel-lift or flatbed equipment.
