Actually, no Volkswagens AT ALL, AUTO OR STICK are authorized by VOA to be flat towed, PERIOD! But, that does not stop many late model VW owners from towing their cars. I've talked with many owners of late model VW TDI units that rolled into campground with them being towed and, not one has had any issues with those being towed. But, they were all STICK versions.
Those owners, took it upon themselves to tow their VWs WITHOUT consent from VOA. Many of them actually contacted the transmission techs at their local VW dealerships and, consulted them about potential issues on towing a stick version. ALL of those techs replied that there would be no issues what so ever but, they could not put it in writing due to the rules and regs of VOA.
As for any automatic VWs, I'd put that to a tech at your local VW dealer and see what he/she has to say about it.
