So, I’m in the market for a Tacoma. But I’m having a bit of an internal debate....

I’d love one with manual transmission, it would be my only car and I’ve never actually owned an automatic car. Basically, I don’t want to get an automatic vehicle and then regret not getting a manual one.

But, if I got a Tacoma, I’d actually take it offroad for some overland-type stuff. I’m just worried that I’d smoke the clutch really easily if I got stuck/needed to clear something.

I know there’s Google, but you lot are pretty reputable and experienced.
