Will I be able to "down-shift?" I live in the foothills above Boulder, CO and the ability to "in-effect" use a mechanism similar to shifting down in a manual transmission car will save replacing my brakes on a yearly basis. My Prius has a very poor version of this and it drives me nuts. My manual transmission Tacoma "winter-truck" is wonderful; never have to use the brakes on my 2000' decent into Boulder.
