Mazda 3 Owners Manual: Towing Description

We recommend that towing be done only by an Authorized Mazda Dealer 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.

Mazda 3. Towing Description

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

  • 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
