1995-2002 Range Rover P38A
I have not previously driven an automatic off road so I am having to develop some different techniques. One thing that is a real concern is the poor engine braking. With my old classic, it would idle down the steepest hill but the P38 runs away in low low so its doing 1500 rpm on any sort of a slope and the road speed is way high for anything rough. What is the best down hill technique? Maybe it is ok to use the brakes as the ABS prevents lock up? I am not confident about this as I attacked a greasy down hill slope using light braking and it seemed that I locked up a wheel. It is annoying to me that a range rover would have such poor down hill capability.
