How should it be towed?
While it’s hoped this never happens to you, there’s a chance that you may have to have your car towed at some point during your ownership. There are a couple of important pointers to understand with the towing process.
Front-Wheel Drive: If your car is front-wheel drive, do not tow it flat (with all wheels on the ground). The best option is to use a flatbed, but you can also use a dolly or another method to get the front wheels off the ground.
All-Wheel Drive: If your car is all-wheel drive, it cannot be towed with all four wheels on the ground. The only option for an all-wheel drive being towed is to use a flatbed or another towing method that gets all the wheels off the ground.
Towing an all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive Fusion with all four wheels on the ground will result in damage to the transmission.
Your car is NOT designed to be towed behind an RV.
Note that your car is not designed to tow a trailer, either. Towing any type of load with your car can damage the transmission.
