    whatevers comfortable. slow speeds or low torque applications arent that demanding naman.

    I thought that was common practice now for any auto-tranny, aside from giving your transmission a rest, 2 to 4 minutes on D is not only tiring on your foot, it can also be dangerous because there's a risk you could lose grip on your pedal and the car suddenly lurches forward.

    Turo rin po sakin yan sa Driving School.. pero not advisable po sa uphill / downhill sa pagkakaanda ko.. Kaya dahan dahan din po irelease ang brake kapag naka-Neutral na + Hand Brake.. Para sure na di gagalaw sasakyan.. Grabe naman kasi ang more than 8 minutes na traffic..cvt on idling Iba na din sa pakiramdam mas prone na mabitawan ang brake sa tulad ko na first time driver..
