Dodge Journey: TOWING A DISABLED VEHICLE

Without The Ignition Key

Front Wheel Drive (FWD)

Special care must be taken when the vehicle is towed with the ignition in the LOCK position. Flatbed towing is the preferred towing method. However, if a flatbed towing vehicle is not available, a wheel lift towing vehicle may be used. Furthermore, rear towing is not recommended with the front wheels on the ground, as transaxle damage can result. If rear towing is the only alternative, a front end dolly must be used. Proper towing equipment is necessary to prevent damage to the vehicle.

All Wheel Drive (AWD)

The manufacturer requires towing your vehicle with all four wheels OFF the ground using a flatbed.

CAUTION:
Towing this vehicle using any other method could result in extensive damage to the transfer case and/or transmission. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Towing This Vehicle Behind Another Vehicle (Flat Towing With The Key In The Ignition And All Four Wheels On The Ground)

CAUTION:
• If the vehicle being towed requires steering, the ignition switch must be in the ON position, not in the LOCK or ACC position.

• Do not attempt to tow this vehicle from the front with sling-type towing equipment. Damage to the front fascia will result.

• Do not push or tow this vehicle with another vehicle as damage to the bumper fascia and transaxle may result.

If you must use the accessories (wipers, defrosters, etc.) while being towed, the key must be in the ON position, not the ACC position. Make certain the transaxle remains in NEUTRAL.

CAUTION:
Exceeding these towing limits may cause a transaxle failure. Such damage is not covered by the New Vehicle Limited Warranty. If the transaxle is not operative, or if the vehicle is to be towed more than 15 miles (25 km), the vehicle must be transported either with a flatbed truck or with the front wheels off the ground.
