Staying On D During Traffic Jams

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Looking for expert advice. Is it good to keep the gear shift on D and apply brakes on traffic jams and colour lights? On conventional CVT gear boxes they recommend the N position for over 1/2 minute sessions since it helps to extend the drive belt life. However on Hybrids the manual says not to do this since there is a risk of battery drain on N. Despite this the car picks up without paddling, moment the brakes are off. Will this increase any wear and tear?
