    Mostly I think it’s about preserving the front IFS drivetrain. Front lockers need a lot of consideration when using on an IFs. I was surprised GM included one stock. Not sure if GM get a lot of trucks with broken CVs or if the front drivetrain is stronger on the GM trucks, or if most people never use it (mall crawling). Jeep can do it more easily because of the solid front axle.

    Anyways.....for most things a Tacoma is capable of off road, the rear locker and front traction control is more than enough. If you are in terrain requiring locked/locked, you are really pushing the your Tacoma past it’s reliable limits.

    Don't forget the new wheels :devil: Edit: Or maybe they aren't new? Thought I saw they updated Pro wheels and they looked a little different. Could be completely wrong.

    Is that another thing we'll lose out on with the MT then, or will remote start works on those as well?

    I wouldn't think it would be that hard to have a sensor to make sure it is in neutral before engaging the remote start, but they seem to like to take away features from us (like push button start).

    IMHO l think the reason we don't have the push button start is so we can use the Clutch Cancel Switch properly.

    You can have a key and remote start. Toyota giving it to us is a different deal, though.

    I don’t get the allure behind push button start, but maybe that’s because I’ve never owned a vehicle that had it.

    I don't get the allure either, would much rather have a key.

    The delivery trucks at work come with push button start. The older diesel models require you to push and hold to start. The new gas freightliners only require one touch to start though.

    The Corolla Hatchback with the manual trans doesn’t have the ability to remote start. I assume it is a liability thing.

    I did not get it either till I have one. Now my Taco and the wife's car both have PTS.

    To put it into perspective, go from driving a MT as you DD for months, then drive an AT for the same amount of time. The first few times you reach for the shifter, after a week not so much, a couple weeks later it is a rare occurrence, after that it only happens when you are dog tired or have just spent a day with a MT. PTS/Keyless is the same way. Last time I have to move someone's car that used a keyed ignition it took me looking around the wheel to find the ignition and stab in the key. Prior to having a PTS I could slip the key in while sitting down with no real effort.

    You would be amazed at how quickly it feels natural to not pull you keys out to open the door or start the truck. I think it felt odd for about 1 or maybe weeks. Now getting into the office or house seems like a PITA because I have to fish the keys out of my pocket. I guess I need to get an Alexa enabled lock on the house so I can just walk up and say "Alexa, open the door.":rofl::rofl:

    Agreed on the button. When I worked at Honda, I'd occasionally have to use a loaner car for errands. It felt weird and I felt like.. naked not having to use a key? I don't understand whats so difficult about turning a key.

    Also, legitimate question: Can you leave the car running and walk away from it? I warm my truck up during these winter mornings and go back in the house (no remote start obviously) and I've wondered how that'd work if I got one of these new Tacomas.

    Or do you still use a key on these but hit a button instead of turning it?

    Comparing a MT to an AT was a bad example, AT feels foreign and always will to me.

    To start the truck the key has to be inside, once started you can walk away. The truck will beep 3 times to remind you the key has left the truck. If you want to lock the door you must slide the key out of the fob and use the keyhole (I think).

    I typically, start my truck, clear the wife's windows and wish her a good day, clear my windows, then hop in and go.

    The truck will run without the fob inside and can be driven away. Once the truck is turned off it will not start again without the fob being present, you will also not be able to lock the doors after closing them without the key fob.. I see this as a bit of a security "loophole" and think it should not be allowed to shift out of park unless they key is present. Another option would be to kill the engine when trying to shift out of park without the key. However, other than a carjacking there are likely few scenarios that would separate key from truck, possibly a spouse starting vehicle and the other drives it to work discovering they forgot their key. :notsure:

    Drive an AT for the length of time that you have driven MT and it will not.

    I know because that is where my life has gone. If I were still physically able, I would be in a MT and quite possibly still have a bike in the drive. Life has a way of changing you and your perspective. ;)
