I got the same line at a dealership when I was considering buying a new one: "They don't make the 4x4 trd in a manual"
I swung by a different dealership to look at a certified truck, but it sold that day, so the sales-woman tried to sell me on a baja 6 speed.
The convo went something like this:
"Sorry, it looks like that truck sold, but we have this nice baja edition 4x4 access cab, like you wanted"
"I can't afford to spend 35K on a new truck, the used one in the lower 20s is my upper limit"
"You don't have anyone who could help you out?
"No, and (playing dumb), why would I want a baja edition anyways?"
"It has upgraded suspension and upgraded wheels"
"That's one hell of an expensive 5100 lift. Are those beadlocks?"
"Yes, they are custom beadlock rims"
I smiled and said I didn't want a 6 speed anyways - too many people have TO bearing issues and the rev hang drives me nuts.
"Thats just from people who don't know how to drive a stick"
You gotta love the stealerships sometimes. I get that they're just trying to make their comission, but comeon! Don't try to upsell a guy looking at a used truck in the lower 20s to a 35k baja edition and BS the details!
