Toyota Highlander Owners Manual: If your vehicle needs to be towed

If towing is necessary, we recommend having your vehicle towed by your toyota dealer or commercial towing service, using a lift-type truck or flatbed truck.

Use a safety chain system for all towing, and abide by all state/ provincial and local laws.

2Wd models: if towing your vehicle with a wheel-lift type truck from the front, the vehicle's rear wheels and axles must be in good conditions. If they are damaged, use a towing dolly or flatbed truck.

Awd models: if towing your vehicle with a wheel-lift type truck, use a towing dolly.

When towing the vehicle

2Wd models: be sure to transport the vehicle with the front wheels raised or with all four wheels raised off the ground.

If the vehicle is towed with the front wheels contacting the ground, the drivetrain and related parts may be damaged.
