Use your automatic as a manual

If you change gears in the correct rpm is it bad for your tranny?

I've started to do this. I just dont want to screw up my tranny

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

It won't hurt anything, but your mileage will suffer... I only shift manually when offroad or when I need engine breaking

So why not just get a manual. That way you can drive the fun transmission and not lose gas mileage or performance

I generally do it on my vehicles because I grew up on manuals and I hate automatic shift points. Our tacomas seem to have pretty good shift points though, so I do it less. My honda I never use "D" on.

Only time I use it on the Taco is for towing and forcing it into first gear when I want to jump onto a highway from a rolling stop, since it will never downshift until full stop. In my experience, theres nothing wrong with it... just don't abuse it, over-revving it and such.

do it all the time when Im going down steep hills that require me to go say 30MPH, do it all the time. Do it in the woods while 4x4ing or hunting going down steep hills. A lot of people do it all the time and are fine. Did it in my dads older 92 Jeep for 15+ years on the same tranny and shifted perfectly its entire life till we sold it
