Maintenance when trailer towing
Driving your vehicle / Trailer towing / Maintenance when trailer towing

Your vehicle will need service more often when you regularly pull a trailer. Important items to pay particular attention to include engine oil, automatic transaxle fluid, axle lubricant and cooling system fluid. Brake condition is another important item to frequently check. Each item is covered in this manual, and the Index will help you find them quickly. If youТre trailering, itТs a good idea to review these sections before you start your trip.

DonТt forget to also maintain your trailer and hitch. Follow the maintenance schedule that accompanied your trailer and check it periodically. Preferably, conduct the check at the start of each dayТs driving. Most importantly, all hitch nuts and bolts should be tight.

CAUTION

  • Due to higher load during trailer usage, overheating might occur in hot days or during uphill driving. If the coolant gauge indicates overheating, switch off the A/C and stop the vehicle in a safe area to cool down the engine.
  • When towing check transaxle fluid more frequently.
