Vehicle Towing Guidelines

Before towing a trailer or another vehicle, there are some important points to consider. You should never tow unless having the proper equipment or you may end up in the car repair and maintenance facility before you're ready for your next scheduled service. Never tow more weight than the vehicle can tolerate. Have the right hitch installed on your vehicle. Make sure that the tires on both vehicles are in good condition and properly inflated. Never drive faster than the speed limit for the load types. Do not make sharp turns or tailgate.

If you are planning on towing a trailer or a cargo load, make sure that the trailer's tail and brake lights function after hooking up the connection. Distribute the weight on a cargo trailer evenly to avoid swaying. Consider practicing turning, backing up and stopping before taking to the open road. In this way, you become familiar with how the trailer handles to prevent damage to either vehicle. Stop by Sunset Mitsubishi in Auburn, WA for an inspection before planning on towing long distances.
