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.

CAUTION
