Hi im Micaiah , new to this particular forum , and buying my first Tacoma within the next few days .
Hopefully some of the members can help me out or give me tips about purchasing a brand new truck .
Im looking to get an 2011 4cyl access cab , Haven't decided 5speed or auto (need help here) , I certainly dont mind stick shift but im curious as to how much better mileage and resale ECT. differs between the 2 , It seems minimal , correct me if im wrong.
Also my main concern is mileage ill be getting a 4wd to help combat Wi winters and i understand these trucks dont improve much for mileage besides the free air filter mod + a drop in difference is once again minimal >1mpg.
Lastly are any of the tacoma packages (prerunner, SR5) worth the extra dollar amount in the resale market if it ever comes to that.
Thanks for your input.
