Cool

Another ATRAC thread, lol.
I am waiting for the low brow bashers to show up.
Let me put it this way, ATRAC is the ONLY thing I miss on my new, non Toyota truck. It is really the only feature that sets the Tacoma apart from other pickups.
But the best thing I ever did was switch to an F150, but that's another story, as that truck has a variation of TRAC that is always on, and a real LSD.

For newbies, to clear up an otherwise excellent post by bmkshort in 2009:
TRAC in 4WD HI and AUTO LSD in 2WD both use brakes without any engine regulation.
TRAC in 2WD uses both brakes and engine regulation.

Toyota's use of the name 'TRAC' for two different sets of operations is confusing.

A-TRAC (Active TRACtion control) is a whole different 'animal' above what TRAC in H4 does... That is why ISTHATAHEMI and others (and me since) have called it being closer to 'lockers' on the front and rear than 'limited slip'.

Congrats on the F150!

Now, go check the value on that Ford after 10,000mi. Then check the value of a Tacoma of the same year, with 10,000mi and let us know how the depreciation compares.

I paid $32k OTD for the F150, $41k for the Tacoma.
Calculated depreciation dollar amount is actually less.
And I don't have to drive a charicature of a real truck.
Better ride, way better mileage, luxurious, better at towing, better cruise control, shall I go on?
Who gives a rats rear about depreciation when the Tacoma stinks!
And I wasn't trolling, someone revived an old thread I had an Email notification for...
Up here in Canada where Tacos are way overpriced, the 2nd gens are depreciating quite badly, btw.

And in case anyone can't read, I was complementing the Taco for having an industry leading technology.
It just so happens the rest of the truck is way out of date.

FWIW - I forfeited a $4000 deposit on my lease to get rid of the thing.
But alas, I have unsubscribed. Enjoy your outdated clunkers!
