[quote:60b90e3008="djc"]When it comes to down shifting (for slowly the car down) I use my brakes ONLY...it's alot cheaper to replace the brakes as opposed to the clucth...but then again that's my driving style and my experience when it comes to doing the replacement work....I work on autos for a living....
Just my $0.02 worth :D[/quote:60b90e3008]

Under what circumstances is it best to use engine-braking then (with either manual or auto transmissions)? Is it only on very long downhill stretches to prevent the brakes from overheating/glazing?
