Default MDX Hill Decent Question --Push the button?

In considering buying an 2001 MDX, I have this concern: When
decending my 1/2 mile steep gravel driveway in icy/snowy conditions;
can I engage the lowest gear and click on the "unstick button" to get
the engine and transmission to brake me on the way down. I DO NOT
want a vehicle that I have to touch the brakes when decending this
hill. Note: My Land Rover Discovery WILL do this---but I'm wanting
an upgrade in vehicle. Will this procedure screw up anything in the
transmission as long as I don't let the RPM's get too high? Thanks.

Probably best to go and ask at www.acuramdx.org. There are many
owners with real life experiences with the MDX who'll provide info for
ya.
