Can't find our owners manual, or I am sure the answer would be in there.

Anyway, does anyone know if a 2017 AWD Limited model can be flat towed behind an RV? Just need to know for future reference.

Thanks,

Glenn

No flat towing for any Hyundai with AWD or with automatic transmission (or both).
Front drive manual transmission Hyundai vehicles can be flat towed.


Due to the AWD, it would need to be flatbed towed - no dolly on one axle since driveline components spin with each tire, not just the front.

^ what dlexpert said...here it is in the manual
"The AWD vehicle should never be towed with the wheels on the ground. This can cause serious damage to the transaxle or the AWD system."
