Morning all, i have a question regarding the Prado 120 brakes, i have the 4l vx auto! My question is; i live in an estate and it is quite steep up and down to my estate, when we come down to go wherever i have to brake most of the time because it does not gear down to a low enough gear to brake with the engine! and supa quick told me that they can see the brakes get quite hot! Would you recomend i go down in 3rd/4th and switch to d4 when i have descended will it help? Exept for the wear on the brakes is there other negatives of the brakes running to hot. My wife uses the car and goes up and down at least 5 times a day.Your input would be much appreciated.

Regards
Vossie
