Is it bad to ride your brakes in a hybrid vehicle? If the answer varies per model, I'm interested in the 2017 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
I know it's bad to ride your brakes in a conventional vehicle as it prevents cooling the brakes. However, I know hybrids use regenerative braking, and I'm not sure whether the brakes always engage, or just when a certain stopping force is needed.
In the Sonata in particular, I have also noticed that when going downhill with cruise control on, the car constantly shows "regenerative" mode, stays at a constant speed, and doesn't feel like it's shifting between disc, electric, or engine braking. I have to assume it wouldn't do this if it were damaging to the car.
