Funny thing, the Rav4 v6 I replaced the Tacoma with is the first auto I've owned since about 2000. It has a smaller engine (3.5L) than the Tacoma and has 5 forward gears, but feels a lot faster in a straight line.Interesting build!
My Tacoma is the first automatic transmission vehicle I've ever owned and it's tough as nails. I love it! And it gets better mileage (slightly) than the available manual. Automatics have come a long way.
Wish I had about 40k and a ton of spare time on my hands...
