    You manually's are supposed to ask about the reverse gear ratio and the clutch 'accumulator'.

    Auto's are supposed to ask what social experiment was being conducted on us with the transmission shift logic.

    What happened to the engineers that built the first gen, and why did you murder them?

    I’m ok with the reverse gearing. I need to get to 45mph in reverse to get to the end of my driveway to j-turn out of it.

    Why some rusty frames were overlooked and marked as good when they are not.

    You must have had different experiences with the marketing department than I.

    Why not keep ECT PWR on the last setting you used it on? Just made this to emphasize my point.

    It usually is. Everything engineers typically get blamed for is really a dilemma created by marketing or finance.

    How about why on 4wd vehicles.

    In 4lo
    SR/SR5/Sport/Limited trims default to traction control ON.

    OR/PRO Auto's defaults to traction control (MTS) OFF.

    OR/PRO Manual's get a latching ATrac button (setting retained)

    Thats weird, I have a sport and in 4lo I cannot even turn traction control on if I wanted to. Which I wouldn't because traction control sucks for offroading

    TRAC defaults ON for you in 4Lo, unless something weird is going on.
    (The way you can tell is there is NO 'TRAC OFF' light until you long press the VSC button in 4Lo while stopped.)

    And I wouldnt totally write off traction control until you try it. In my opinion, all depends on the situation.
