My '09 Element EX AWD MT is a week and a half old now, so I'm certain it will last forever and never be dinged and never break down, but upon perusing the user manual, I found that AWD vehicles should always be towed on a flatbed, because to tow them conventionally will damage the 4 wheel drive mechanism.

Is this true also for a manual transmission if it is left in neutral? I'm thinking that the wheels roll freely and it shouldn't be a problem. I suspect there is more complexity in the answer, but I'd appreciate some enlightenment.
