If towing is necessary, we recommend you have it done by a HYUNDAI authorised repairer or a commercial tow truck service.

If a 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 at the front (or rear) of the vehicle.

Use extreme caution when towing the vehicle with a cable or chain. 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 speeds. Also, the wheels, axles, power train, steering and brakes must all be in good condition.

Always follow these emergency towing precautions:

  • Place the ignition switch in the ACC position so the steering wheel is not locked.
  • Place the shift lever in N (Neutral).
  • Release the parking brake.
  • Depress the brake pedal with more force than normal as you will have reduced braking performance.
  • More steering effort will be required because the power steering system will be disabled.
  • Use a vehicle heavier than your own to tow your vehicle.
  • The drivers of both vehicles should communicate with each other frequently.
  • Before emergency towing, check that the hook is not broken or damaged.
  • Fasten the towing cable or chain securely to the hook.
  • Do not jerk the hook. Apply steady and even force.

  • Use a towing cable or chain less than 5 m (16 feet) long. Attach a white or red cloth (about 30 cm (12 inches) wide) in the middle of the cable or chain for easy visibility.
  • Drive carefully so the towing cable or chain remains tight during towing.
  • Before towing, check the automatic transmission/dual clutch transmission for fluid leaks under your vehicle. If the automatic transmission fluid is leaking, flatbed equipment or a towing dolly must be used.

CAUTION

To avoid damage to your vehicle and vehicle components when towing:

  • Always pull straight ahead when using the towing hooks. Do not pull from the side or at a vertical angle.
  • Do not use the towing hooks to pull a vehicle out of mud, sand or other conditions from which the vehicle cannot be driven out under its own power.
  • Limit the vehicle speed to 10 mph (15 km/h) and drive less than 1 mile (1.5 km) when towing to avoid serious damage to the automatic transmission.
