    Auto., better off road control, and easier than shifting in traffic... however, your son may want the stick so he can 'race it'.

    Auto. It's all around better for the reasons listed above. I drive a 6 speed because I love it and hate driving automatics. If your son isn't INSISTING on a manual, get the auto.

    I really wanted a manual but settled on a automatic after I found the exact truck I wanted used.

    So glad I did, really don't see a manual Tacoma living up to my previous car which was manual, plus I sit in traffic every morning.
