How to pull Malibu out of snow?

Looked underneath car tonight to see where I could wrap a strap or hook to pull car out of snowbank if needed. Looks to me like I'd be SOL...plastic everything...can't find anywhere on frame that works. Anyone have any ideas?

Re: How to pull Malibu out of snow?

It's tough to do on your own. I had a friend who's 2009 Mailibu got stuck in
a ditch, back wheels were off the ground. Her boyfriend called AAA and a tow truck came out. This kid almost ripped the bumper off. They ended up
calling another company who sent a flat bed. This guy knew what he was doing, he used boards to level the car off and was able to pull it out of the ditch. The car only had minor scratches. I don't know it might be best to call
a tow company & pray they're careful, because as we all know it's all PLASTIC.

Tow strap looped through the rims and then a tow truck to pull....don't jerk the car though, that's were the tow truck comes into play
