Ever since I got my car I have been downshifting by skipping gears.
For example if I want to pass on the highway I go straight from 5th to 3rd and rev match accordingly. I do this instead of going from 5th to 4th to 3rd. Mostly because I don’t have the time to shift that quickly when making a maneuver.
Am I increasing wear on the car? If so how much and how significantly compared to downshifting normally .
