Can A Mazda 3 With Automatic Transmission Be Flat Towed?


I want to flat to my Mazda 3. I read that with manual transmissions this is possible. My Mazda 3 has a automatic and manual transmission with no clutch. Also how do you add the breaking assist? And would I be able to install all of the needed parts myself? Any help would be appreciated.

I have another option for you, but since your Mazda 3 has an automatic transmission with the sport mode and no clutch it can unfortunately not be flat towed.

To recreational tow your Mazda 3 you will need to use a tow dolly like the Demco Kar Kaddy X Tow Dolly w/ Disc Brakes - Tilt Bed Frame - 4,800 lbs - Wide Tread # DM9713093.

Overall a tow dolly is usually a little less expensive than a flat tow setup, and is a great option that can be used with multiple different vehicles without any additional parts.
