Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Driving notes on towing

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Towing requires some experience, especially when using a tow-rope. Both drivers should be familiar with the technique required for towing. Inexperienced drivers should not attempt to tow.

When driving make sure that you do not pull too hard on the towing vehicle and take care to avoid jerking movements. When towing on an unpaved road, there is always a risk of overloading and damaging the anchorage points.

You can still use the turn signals if your vehicle is towed with the hazard warning lights and ignition switched on. Move the turn signal lever to signal the desired direction. The hazard warning lights will not flash while the turn signal is being used. The hazard warning lights will start flashing automatically as soon as the turn signal lever is moved back to the neutral position.

Notes for the driver of the towed vehicle:

  • Leave the ignition switched on to prevent the steering wheel from locking, and so that the turn signals, horn, windscreen wipers and washers can be used.
  • As the power assisted steering does not work if the engine is not running, you will need more strength to steer than you normally would.
  • You will need to depress the brake pedal more vigorously than normal as the brake servo is not working. Do not drive too close to the towing vehicle.
  • Observe any information and notes in the towing vehicle's owner's manual.

Notes for the driver of the towing vehicle

  • Accelerate carefully and gently. Avoid any sudden driving manoeuvres.
  • Brake earlier than normal by pressing lightly on the brake pedal.
  • Observe any information and notes in the towed vehicle's owner's manual.
