MetroMPG, thanks for that suggestion about windows. The windows are power, but the only one that works is the driver side front, I don't know why, and the moon roof on top.

Baltothewolf, the curves are the steepest part of the descent of the hill, followed by a relatively straight stretch where I get up to 80 very easily just coasting in neutral. I guess having the car in 3rd helps a lot more than it seems, and I appreciate your warning on the brakes.

Sqidd, don't trucks have a different type of brakes? I think there's a truck speed limit of 15 mph down the hill, but it's strange, I mostly encounter trucks coming back up from the other direction.
