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.
