For manual transmission cars - Going uphill should use gears 1 - 2 - Going downhill should use low gear. to create traction to slow down For automatic transmission cars - Going up the hill should use D2 or L gear when off the steep slope. Should switch to drive at D gear - Going downhill if the slope is very steep, change from gear D to gear D2 or L.
