Unless you're dead set on Automatics, check out Subaru. We have been towing our 2012 Impreza now for 3 years with no issues. No pumps, required stops, engine running, pulling of fuses, driveshaft disconnects, dead batteries, etc. Just hook up and go.
I believe all Subarus with manual transmissions can be flat towed except the BRZ roadster.
