Mazda 2: Towing Description

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

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.

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