Nissan Micra: Towing a trailer

Nissan Micra Owners Manual

Do not tow a trailer with your vehicle.

FLAT TOWING

Towing your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground is sometimes called flat towing. This method is sometimes used when towing a vehicle behind a recreational vehicle, such as a motor home.

CAUTION
  • Failure to follow these guidelines can result in severe transmission damage.
  • Whenever flat towing your vehicle, always tow forward, never backward.
  • Never tow your front wheel drive vehicle with the front tires on the ground. Doing so may cause serious and expensive damage to the powertrain.
  • DO NOT tow any continuously variable transmission vehicle with all four wheels on the ground (flat towing). Doing so WILL DAMAGE internal transmission parts due to lack of transmission lubrication.
  • For emergency towing procedures refer to “Towing recommended by NISSAN” in the “In case of emergency” section of this manual.

Manual Transmission (if so equipped)

  • Always tow with the manual transmission in Neutral.
  • After towing 805 km (500 miles), start and idle the engine with the transmission in Neutral for two minutes. Failure to idle the engine after every 805 km (500 miles) of towing may cause damage to internal transmission parts.

Automatic Transmission (if so equipped)

To tow a vehicle equipped with an automatic transmission, an appropriate vehicle dolly MUST be placed under the towed vehicle’s drive wheels. Always follow the dolly manufacturer’s recommendations when using their product.
