New Here. My Pros and Cons of Truck

Hello. I bought a 09 Toyota Tacoma. Here are my pros and cons:

Pros: Good build quality, fun off-road, backup camera on the autodim mirror is useful, good resale value.
Cons: No outside heated mirrors, auto transmission tends to go into the wrong gear on downhill but it doesn't seem to affect anything. Could have used better stock tires.

If you could go back in a Delorean, would you tell the past you to get a manual?

Search DIY Heated Mirrors, or there are 2 aftermarket heated mirror options available that I know of. One is sold by Mach1Man001, the other is Muth Mirrors.

x2 the heated mirror mod seems to be a relatively easy fix. It's on my list of things to do and changing out the stock tires is an easy fix too.
