    So much Yota I can't explain!
    Overall, I like a manual. Better gas mileage (if you can drive it right,) and people are less likely to steal it. But I like automatics for towing and for being on the paper route- throwing papers is a lot easier when I'm not haftin to shift, control the wheel, and throw a paper out the window. My Taco is an automatic, unfortunately, but I don't mind. I couldn't pass up such a truck for only $250!

    I prefer manual because to me its more fun to drive… I see how it can get annoying in traffic from time to time for most people, but ive been driving manual as a daily driver for 12 years and shifting just comes so naturally to me that i reach to clutch when i come to a stop on my wife's auto…lol… :eek:
    now, to be honest with you all… traffic is annoying on my wife auto just as much as my manual…
