We towed our '08 Passion for over 25,000 w/o a battery disconnect. Yes, we did "X" a set of bungees to the seat frame and through the steering wheel to keep the little guy from bouncing from left to right - works great (right frame to left side of steering wheel, and vice versa. The bungee kept the wheel centered and under tension - but not so tight that it couldn't respond to turns. And we simply put the car in neutral, then turned off the key in the ignition before towing. Be sure to keep a spare key in the RV, as somehow got locked out of the little fella once or twice. We did a LOT of research back in '08, and this was what the other owners were doing. Our was a Blue Ox tow bar/system designed for a smart car.
