    Correct. Just because I know it was my young, dumb, 19 year old fault, that doesn't erase the emotional scarring :D:D:D:D

    Yeah, engine braking done wrong. Drives me nuts. 2 things:
    1. Only happens if you touch the brakes. If you're 100% against the engine and never touch the brakes, my Hilux doesn't do it.
    2. If you...

    Cost to own (buy, service, fuel, insure, repair)
    Gut feel.

  15. Re: HILUX GD6 AUTO searching for gear after driving over a speedbump

    I find that mine will drop to 1st gear if I slow down to <20kph using the brake. That's when it's sitting in 1st when you accelerate after the bump and you feel like you should be in 2nd.

    Pole mounted LTO battery pack for something.

    Presumably, that will sit on a pole, just underneath a solar panel, possibly with a motorised sun tracker?

    Agreed. I'm a die hard Toyota fan boy, but of those 2 choices, get the one that your heart says, because the logical head argument doesn't matter. They're both great.
