    Circles/squares on your Mazda are not for towing or pulling onto flatbed

    Part of the problem here is basic terminology. "Towing" and "recovery" are not interchangeable. OF COURSE no one should "tow" their car using the eyelets. But if you're stuck in ditch and there's no tow truck, and you've got to get out NOW, you might consider using the eyelet just for...
