I am in the process of looking for another Tacoma pick up to replace my current one which is being bought back by Toyota for frames problems. I'm looking to purchase a 4x2 version for the gas savings. Toyota lists the traction controlstabilityy control option on both its web site and in the dealer brochure in the area. However I'm being told by the dealers that the stability control option is not available on trucks in this region of the country.
WHY? We have lots of snow and a traction control system would certainly help with winter driving. Why isn't it part of the standard package anyway? I know I can opt for a 4x4 but would prefer not to spend the extra money in gas or entail costs.
