6-Speed Manual VS. 5-Speed Automatic on the V6
I'd like to get some feedback from both sides, 6-Speed manual and 5-Speed automatic owners for the V6 Taco. I'm a manual transmission guy and all my cars have been manual. Naturally, I want to buy a manual Tacoma.
However, according to the dealership I can't buy a 2012 (or 2011) 4-door Tacoma with manual transmission in California. The sales guy says they didn't qualify for California emissions standards.
I've heard some people love their 6-Speeds and other guys who are into manual cars still hate that tranny.
I'd appreciate all the feedback I can get.
