<strong>1/ On slowing, do you downshift to 2nd and allow the selespeed to shift to 1st? Or do you let selespeed downshift by itself all the way?
2/ At the lights, do you shift it to neutral (recommended in the manual)? Or do you let it sit on 1st?</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I downshift myself to 2nd, but let the transmission go from 2nd to 1st by itself usually.
If I'm at a standstill in bad traffic/lights I will put the car in neutral - it is better for the transmission.
