Cheap toad, 4 down

Ok, I am in the market for a cheap toad, to pull 4 down. If I buy a manual transmission, can they all be towed 4 down? As I live in Thailand, and visit the U.S. a couple times a year only, it has to be a older, cheap, 4 door, small, car or SUV. I think a Saturn can be towed 4 down, auto or manual? What about the older Honda's? Is there a guide that tells you which older models can be towed 4 down? Both the DW and I can drive manual transmission's so that is not a problem, but, a automatic that can be towed 4 down would be ok too? Any suggestions, info, to help me in my search?
Thanks, Rail!
PS, which tow bars are the easiest, best value/quality, for a small car/suv?

I tow an 2013 automatic Chevy Sonic, weighs in around 2,700 lbs. seems to do just fine. It's also my daily driver. I opted for the Roadmaster products as they are easy to connect/disconnect. But then most modern tow kits are.

Do Google search for "4 down towable vehicles" and you will find many sources of information.
