2 gears if your towing something heavy uphill and winter season. d3 for heavy traffic situation where stop and go are often and d4 for highways.

For general purposes, just keep it in D4. In wet oily streets or snow, you might want to start out from a stop in D2 and then go to D4.

D4 is for Wegon Drive Mode,( Economy Mode ) u can drive upto 220 KM/Hr, D3, D2 May be used for Power / Sports Mode or for Climbing Hills or Some place at 45 degree Angle. sohail Rizvi Dubai/ Karachi
