Flat towing

Flat towing  - Towing a trailer - Technical and consumer information - Infiniti JX Owners Manual - Infiniti JX

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 any automatic 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 INFINITI in the In case of emergency section of this manual.

Continuously Variable Transmission

To tow a vehicle equipped with a continuously variable transmission, an appropriate vehicle dolly MUST be placed under the towed vehicles drive wheels. Always follow the dolly manufacturers recommendations when using their product.
