On long down hills just let it go and it will usually hold it back good enough unless it is long and steep. But because it works so well I am at 85K and still on the original pads.
I hope this works good enough because I drive a lot of hilly highways where I hate where your vehicle speeds up on every down hill. That is why the cops sit at the bottom. With my car I just let up, my gas usage goes to zero and I usually maintain the same speed.
Yeah, but your gas usage is zero anyhow!
