question on about changing gears
i often change gears while travelling at about 60 - 80 km/h to lower gears to aid in braking the car more effectively... this is easy to do in a manual car as I can control the gear that it changes to.
however, with the semi automatic car, the gearbox seem to change from say 5 to 3 or 4 to 2 which is the wrong gear (well, in my opinion anyway). would this damage the gearbox?
on some occasions, after the gear changes and i notice that it is the wrong gear, i would then quickly change it to suit. is that ok? again, will this damage the gearbox / programming of the car?
thanks in advance.
