Mazda 2: Towing Description

Mazda2 Owners Manual

We recommend that towing be done only by an expert repairer, we recommend an Authorised Mazda Repairer 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 (front wheels) off the ground.

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

Towing Description


When towing with the rear wheels on the ground, release the parking brake.

CAUTION

  • Do not tow the vehicle pointed backward with driving wheels on the ground. This may cause internal damage to the transaxle.

  • Do not tow with sling-type equipment. This could damage your vehicle. Use wheel-lift or fl atbed equipment.

If towing service is not available in an emergency, the vehicle may be towed with all four wheels on the ground using the towing hook at the front of the vehicle.

Only tow the vehicle on paved surfaces for short distances at low speeds.

CAUTION

Follow these instructions when towing the vehicle with all wheels on the ground.

  • Shift to neutral (Manual transaxle), or the N position (Automatic transaxle).
  • Switch the ignition to ACC.
  • Release the parking brake.

Remember that power assist for the brakes and steering will not be available when the engine is not running.
