I was considering getting a new Tacoma to take over for my 1989 4Runner that I've been driving for the last thirteen years. I test drove a 4 banger regular cab 4x4 and really liked it. But when I turned the dial (?) to 4-lo it beeped like I had activated the self destruct sequence. The salesman showed me that I had to set the parking brake first before selecting 4-lo. Even then I still had problems getting it in and out of 4-lo. I was wondering if it was possible to ever get use to this or disable the need for parking brake to shift. Seems like I am constantly in and out of 4-lo in the backcountry and will really miss a manual shift transfer case.
