    I don't think doing either will matter much to a brand new car. If you have an older car and plan to keep it for a few hundred thousand km maybe it might wear out earlier but you have to consider your comfort and well being as well.

    Did the same yesterday. Went up to Tagaytay thru Santa Rosa and saw the traffic going down was very slow. I went back thru Silang-Carmona.

    there are arguments for and against, but my personal bottom line is, "the degree of wear and tear is probably not worth the effort at arguing".
    Agreed Doc!

    Not placing the gear in N downsides:
    1) Wears your knee and patience
    2) Burns ATF, especially DCTs
    3) Wears your brake pads.

    I have 16 Grab cars, 5 ATs (2 DCTs), reason I know.

    Ayan na ang suma nyan, kung 10 years or 200k kms mo lang naman hahawakan ang car mo, i don't think it will fail just yet.

    Guess you have to balance your options...frequent D-N-D as they say put strain on your automatic transmission components. On the other hand that method saves you fuel as your engine plus brake pad maintenance as it is not always engage on Drive.

Do I have to maintain at "D" while stepping the brake and release the break to move a little forward? Or could I put it at N with the handbreak then shift back to D and release the handbreak to move forward a little? Stepping on the break for a long period at time hurt my right knee/leg... Ilang estimated seconds or minutes ba before considering placing it at N? Hope someone can enlighten me on this....

    nasanay nadin ako na kapag stand still traffic or red sa traffic lighr nag neutral nalang ako..

    pag moving trapik naman pinapauna ko ng konti yung nasa harap para di masyado na kaka ngawit sa paa pag brake...
