Anybody know why Toyota never developed a hill start assist feature for the 6-speed manual transmission?
I know it's on the autos, but that seems kind of pointless to me as I've never known rollback with an auto to be a problem. Seems it would be easy enough to develop and you could turn it on and off with a button on the dash, and would make a huge difference with hill starts in MT Tacomas as the rear is so lightweight and prone to breaking loose on steep takeoffs. Others have it ... like the MT Wranglers. Why not manual FJs and Tacomas? Or (as the 4Runner had already done) is Toyota just determined to make everything auto? (A dealer told me that's exactly what they've heard Toyota is doing).
