No, it doesn't hurt it. It puts some stresses on the engine and the transmission. If you feel that the car is straining too much, just back off and let it limp up. Theres a really long 7% grade on the way to WV. I just leave the cruise set at 80 and the car downshifts to keep the speed up. Don't worry about it.
