Should You Use Engine Braking

When you need to slow down your car and you don’t want to put wear and tear on your car there is a common misconception that engine braking is bad for your car. In reality, engine braking is fine and won’t cause you any additional wear and tear on the vehicle at all. If you’re a fan of downshifting to slow the car down, that will cause undue wear on your clutch and throw your car out of balance in the process whereas engine braking is able to slow your car without causing you any problems.
