I drive bmw automatic.. i have just D and pulling to left on D is m+/s like manual sport! Where do i have as option as a L or 1. Have survived brake failure when i used camry for two years, firstly i dont announce to fellow occupants in the car because their panics will confuse me. If am ascending hill i use N but if descending i off engine but allow the lights on for power steering effectiveness. Then my hand brake be pulled n released systematically to avoid the somersault of the car.
Put the car in manual and keep downshifting until I get you get to the lowest possible gear. Same thing with cars that have paddle shifters.

For auto-transmission cars at hi-speed, It’s best you downshift to D3-D2-D1/L in quick succession. For manual tranny , nak am to gear 2. Car go halla but it will get the job done.
YEAH I EXPERIMENTED IT AND IT WORKED
