Subaru Legacy Owners Manual: Towing hook and tie-down hooks/holes

Subaru Legacy Owners Manual / In case of emergency / Towing / Towing hook and tie-down hooks/holes

The towing hook should be used only in an emergency (e.g., to free a stuck vehicle from mud, sand or snow).

A towing hook is supplied with Outback only. Legacy is not supplied with a towing hook (it is available as an accessory). On Legacy, the towing access cover is on the rear bumper only.

SUBARU recommends towing be done by your SUBARU dealer or a commercial towing service.

CAUTION
  •  Use only the specified towing hook and tie-down hooks/holes.

    Never use suspension parts or other parts of the body for towing or tie-down purposes.

  •  Never use the tie-down hole closest to the muffler under the vehicle for towing purposes.
  •  To prevent deformation to the bumper and the towing hook, do not apply excessive lateral load to the towing hooks.
