Bona - - Motoring -

Don’t put your car into neu­tral mode on a down­hill. This may sound like a good way of sav­ing fuel, but it means no en­gine brak­ing. Not only is it hard on the brakes, it is also un­safe as the car can quickly reach un­con­trol­lable speed. Rather shift down gear by gear un­til the low­est to keep the speed un­der con­trol, and pre­serve the brakes.
