NISSAN recommends that your vehicle be towed with the driving (front) wheels off the ground or place the vehicle on a flat bed truck as illustrated.

For All-Wheel Drive (AWD) models, see “All- Wheel Drive (AWD) models” earlier in this section.

CAUTION

Never tow Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) models with the front wheels on the ground or four wheels on the ground (forward or backward), as this may cause serious and expensive damage to the drivetrain. If it is necessary to tow the vehicle with the rear wheels raised, always use towing dollies under the front wheels.
When towing CVT models with the front wheels on towing dollies:

— Push the ignition switch to the ACC or ON position, and secure the steering wheel in a straightahead position with a rope or similar device.
— Move the shift lever to the N (Neutral) position.

When towing a CVT model with the rear wheels on the ground (if you do not use towing dollies): Always release the parking brake.
