Actually any VW with a 5 speed manual transmission can be flat towed
that would be all gas models with manual transmission (5 speed)
6 speed only available with diesel

Iam trying to find out specifically if there is something weird with the 6 speed like splash plate or pump on the the input (Bad)
or if they are on the output (great). I do not want a dolly I would get a enclosed 24 foot trailer with extended tongue

Thanks
