When I was seeking similar information, I used the REMCO website (previously mentioned) and read that my choice was,indeed, flat towable. Blue Ox made a base plate for my vehicle, which seemed to reinforce that it was flat towable.

However, I was pretty sure that if flat towing my car damaged the drivetrain, REMCO and Blue Ox would both feel pretty bad about that. But, it would be me, alone, who was talking to my car's manufacturer about reimbursement for the damages.
So, I searched my vehicle owner's manual
. I called the manufacturer's toll free number and spoke with their representative (carefully noting the name, date, time and nature of the conversation). Only after confirming that both of those sources clearly and unequivocally stated that I could flat tow my vehicle, did I feel like I could safely tow it.
You'll get lot's of great advice from many sources, this forum for sure.
Just don't assume that those giving you their free advice will be standing beside you with their checkbooks in hand IF something doesn't go well in your towing experience.
