Kia Forte 2019-2020 (BD) Owners Manual / What to do in an emergency / Towing / Emergency towing

■ Front

■ Rear

If towing is necessary, we recommend you to have it done by an authorized Kia dealer or a commercial tow truck service.

If towing service is not available in an emergency, your vehicle may be temporarily towed using a cable or chain secured to the emergency towing hook under the front (or rear) of the vehicle. Use extreme caution when towing the vehicle. A driver must be in the vehicle to steer it and operate the brakes.

Towing in this manner may be done only on hard-surfaced roads for a short distance and at low speed. Also, the wheels, axles, power train, steering and brakes must all be in good condition.

CAUTION

Using a portion of the vehicle other than the tow hooks for towing may damage the body of your vehicle.

WARNING - Emergency Towing Precautions

Use extreme caution when towing the vehicle.
