My father and I were talking about this the other day and I just wanna know what you guys think/do. I have a manual trans in my taco and when I go down hills I like to shift out of gear and let gravity accelerate my car and take me down hill, using my brakes to control my speed if needed. I drive like this to save gas. My father likes to leave it in gear and let the trans control the speed down hill. He does this to extend the life of the brakes. Also he was a truck driver for 20+ years so it's just ingrained in him.
How do you go about driving your stick downhill?
