Hi folks just thought I would update you on the response I have received from ford engineers according to the 2014 towing manual page 2 it states as a general rule,vehicle should be towed with the drive wheels off the ground. If the vehicle is towed on its drive wheels,place a dolly underneath the drive wheels of the vehicle and tow with the non tow wheels raised. based in what the customer is experiencing,the step above would be the best way to tow this vehicle. this information is slightly different than what the owners manual states and suggests. This totally counterdicts what we are being told in the owners manual that comes with the vehicle. I truly believe ford has a problem with this vehicle and can only hope they will come up with a more sensible solution for this problem. I want to thank garymckrieg for his information it seems to make the most sense yet on fords problem. For any of you that are interested in seeing my issue it has been put on you tube under towing the ford cmax/dea.th wobble. thanks to all of you for your suggestions. also to meghan from ford forum I would like to talk to you if possible thanks.
Those are generic instructions for how almost any vehicle, that is not certified for flat 4 down towing, should be towed. For Ford to actually offer that as the answer to your issue is outrageous.
