I have a 2005 Honda stick shift. Should I come to a complete stop on neutral or downshift as I slowdown to a stop? What's recommended by certified mechanics? Thanks.

Downshift. Putting it in neutral wears brakes prematurely. Or at least leave it in gear while slowing until the engine drops to idle speed
