Nissan Rogue Owners Manual / Technical and consumer information / Towing a trailer / Flat towing for front wheel drive vehicle (if so equipped)

Towing your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground is sometimes called flat towing. This method is sometimes used when towing a vehicle behind a recreational vehicle, such as a motor home.

CAUTION
  •  Failure to follow these guidelines can result in severe transmission damage.
  •  Whenever flat towing your vehicle, always tow forward, never backward.
  •  DO NOT tow your front wheel drive continuously variable transmission vehicle with all four wheels on the ground (flat towing). Doing so WILL DAMAGE internal transmission parts due to lack of transmission lubrication.
  •  For emergency towing procedures refer to “Towing recommended by NISSAN” in the “In case of emergency” section of this manual.
