towing with a dolly

Asked by Oct 16, 2019 at 02:55 PM about the 2011 Ford Escape Limited AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I made the mistake of towing my 2011 escape on a tow dolly. I towed it 60
miles. the vehicle is a AWD vehicle.  I now hear a roar coming from somewhere
when I drive it.  Does anyone know what damages I may have done?

Could be a number of things in the drive train. Have it inspected.


First thing that goes out when towing an AWD vehicle is the transfer case, it just tears them up inside, so it's best to have it towed to where your going to have it repaired/replaced so you bust the transfer case.
