    ok ok ok is it just me or do you guys/girls hate the pull out cord ebrakes on the 1st gen tacos, i don't know what the second gen tacos have but i hate these ones, they always get twisted up and never fully disengage!!!!!! I am always pushing the brake in to disengage my ebrake lights!!!! just venting lol.
    also does anyone know a company that sells cheap seat heater mats, that you can wire in? I have found a few that range from $100-300 per seat, the 100 comes from germany so its probably another 100 to ship each one.....

    thanx, my ebrake works fine, but its the pull out and twist then twist and push in motion that gets everything screwed up, it should be a fatory defect, just like the early generation leaf springs that always sag when you have nothing in the box etc... everyone in my province that has a 1st generation has had to get the leafs recurved including myself....
