Flat Towing Equipment Recommendations For A 2013 Ford Fiesta With Automatic Transmission  


Can a 2103 Ford Fiesta be flat towed?


Expert Reply:

Based on the generic manual available online for a 2013 Ford Fiesta with automatic transmission it is capable of being flat towed with a few steps to follow to safely tow it. I highly recommend referring to your specific model's manual to ensure it is capable and follow the steps listed under "recreational towing" for your vehicle. I have the following equipment recommendations for you below:

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plates - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000lbs Item # RM-525. The large hookup radius allows you to connect without perfectly lining up your vehicle. This tow bar easily folds up to store on your RV when not in use.

Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit Item # RM-154. This one time install will splice into the tail light wiring to signal so all you have to do is plug in and go once installed.

Base Plate: Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # BX2622. The removable bracket arms, provide a clean, unobtrusive look when your car is not being towed.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39524. This system will give you intense, emergency braking or steady, smooth braking in a single portable system. Easily switch between proportional or full braking. One-touch Auto Start makes setup fast and easy and the remote lets you change settings from your RV. The included charge line kit will keep your battery charged while towing.

Safety Cables: Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables with S-Hooks - 42" Long - 3,500lbs - Qty 2 Item # C80136. The coiled design eliminates slack and keeps the cables from dragging on the ground.
