I looked up a 2021 Versa Sedan Owner Manual it appears at quick glance that the Versa is flat towable with two warnings; don't flat tow a front wheel drive vehicle and don't flat tow with a CVT transmission. I think this leaves having a Manual Transmission for flat towing purposes.

You need to check the actual Owners Manual that came with the vehicle the one I checked is generic.

I looked at a 2020 Nissan Versa... manual transmission on that one could be flat towed.

When i was researching the Nissan Versa , i decided against the Versa.
I copied this from another rv post. Vehicle Warranty comes into play even with the manual trans.



“This is the reply I received from my Nissan dealer

Nissan does not make a vehicle that they recommend for flat towing, even the Manual Trans Versa. You technically COULD flat tow the vehicle but it does void part of the transmission warranty.

Thank You,

The dealer is being a bit cagey about the warranty. Things you do to a car don't void the warranty, though if you damage something by doing stuff outside what the manufacturer approves/recommends (or, for that matter, if third-party parts/upgrades cause damage), coverage for that damage may be properly denied. It's theoretically up to the manufacturer to show that the problem was caused by what you did/installed rather than by a defect in their materials or manufacturing. In the case of flat towing, I suppose it would be pretty easy for them to say with appropriate authority that a transmission failure was caused by that if they don't permit it per the owner's manual.

The net effect may be similar, in that you're on the hook to fix the problem on your own dime, but the warranty is not technically voided in any legal sense of the word.
