Tow vehicle

I'm looking to buy a vehicle to tow behind a 2007 Lexington, 4 down.
Does anyone know if the following vehicles are towable. They are all manuals-

2010 Saturn Astra hatchback
2007 Chev Aveo LS5
2007 Kia Spectra
2005 Kia Rio sedan
2007 Toyota Yaris
2008 Hyundai Accent

Is there a data base somewhere of towable vehicles?

We are from Australia, and have bought the Lexington and are travelling around the US and Canada. We need a car for sightseeing, but a bit new to this process.
Amazing country, thanks in advance.

I'm sure the Saturn is 4-down towable - not sure of the others. More experts will respond, and answer about all of them. I'm a newbie, too. Welcome to the states. Enjoy.

Check Motorhomes magazine web site or Google Motorhomes dinghy guide for the year you looking for. I don't know how far back they have available

99% of vehicles with a manual trans are flat towable. Just check with manufacturers to se if they have an oil pump that runs off the input shaft when the vehicle is running. No pump, no problem. If it does have a pump it will starve for oil and fail.
