  • Turn the ignition switch to ACC so the steering wheel isnТt locked.
  • Place the transaxle shift lever in N (Neutral).
  • Release the parking bake.
  • Press the brake pedal with more force than normal since you will have reduced brake performance.
  • More steering effort will be required because the power steering system will be disabled.
  • If you are driving down a long hill, the brakes may overheat and brake performance will be reduced. Stop often and let the brakes cool off.

CAUTION - Automatic transaxle

  • If the car is being towed with all four wheels on the ground, it can be towed only from the front. Be sure that the transaxle is in neutral. Be sure the steering is unlocked by placing the ignition switch in the ACC position. A driver must be in the towed vehicle to operate the steering and brakes.
  • To avoid serious damage to the automatic transaxle, limit the vehicle speed to 10 mph (15 km/h) and drive less than 1 mile (1.5 km) when towing.
  • Before towing, check under your vehicle for leaking automatic transaxle fluid. If the automatic transaxle fluid is leaking, a flatbed equipment or towing dolly must be used.
