    I failed to quote, but my statement was the 91,000 no issue comment. I sometimes screw up, and am honestly shocked that Toyota didn’t mistake proof this manual transmission.

    Our Subaru has 85k on it, and doesn’t shift as smooth as it once did, then hop in the taco and it’s easy to push through the gate and not realize it, but again I’m not perfect.

    I can’t believe with the tension of the reverse detent spring in the Tacoma anyone is shifting into reverse when going for first.
    Unless mine is stronger than usual.....or I’m week?

    Exactly. The 'hard' lockout to reverse is good.

    I always leave my vehicle in gear (1st or reverse) and when I am about to start again, I always follow a sequence that I have done in my previous M/T, which is clutch, battery, neutral, ignition on.

    Fact of the matter, it can and does happen. Again, I’m shocked that Toyota, did not mistake proof this.

    Naw, then you have to eat some big ass breakfasts.
    Just ADHD, and sometimes get moving too fast. Sometimes You just to move fast and don’t think about what your doing. Other days, I am fully in tune and have no issue at all.

    easy to do with a heavy knob and a quick shift. therein lies the potential issue. i found it twice in 3 years. but that knob i used is like 1.4lbs.

    Ive done this once or twice over the past year. Never during concious or relaxed driving but in a situation of stress...i.e a three point turn with traffic coming, not that I was at risk of a collision but I tried to excute the turn quickly to not inconvience the other cars. I much prefer the phsyical lockout collar on my FR-S.

    I have owned a few VW's, its not hard really hard to go back and forth between 1st and Reverse, you get the hang of pushing down on the shifter.

    The 74 VW Thing we have has a weird lockout. You push down on the shifter and pull towards you then back

    Manual all the way. Looking for a 2020 the same way. Not as fun as the vette but hey, it's a truck. That being said, when I go heavy hauling mode with my F250, I often am searching for the phantom clutch that isn't there.

    The whole point of getting a Tacoma over other trucks is cause it’s offered in Manual from factory.
    Also, frontier looks ugly.

    My buddy has a 2002 F250 single cab long bed that is a manual transmission. It says the gear pattern is Creeper-1-2-3-4-overdrive. It's like they needed to tell people it had four on the floor. The shifter itself was like 5 feet long. Whenever we went people thought we were "the help". We went to a place to buy mulch one time and before we knew it a worker dumped 3 yards of mulch into the bed by accident. He just figured we were there from this golf course that had similar trucks.

    I installed the URD short shifter on my truck. That definitely increased the effort required to engage reverse, but even before that I never found reverse accidentally. I drove a 2005 Corolla XRS for 8 years prior to my Tacoma with the 6 speed, that had zero tension and reverse was easier to find than first. Toyota's answer to that was a beeper in reverse of the back of the instrument cluster. I always felt some sort of locking mechanism would have been safer.
