about automatic transmission
I have bought HONDA civic vti oriel (year model-1999) sedan. This is an automatic transmission car. I just want to know that what when I should drive my car in D4, D3 & 2 gears? I mean why are these 3 different modes are given?
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.
i have the two door ,same trans, drive 4 is your norm. drive3 on highways that are hilly or mountainess. drive 2 i only ever use to keep the trans from shifting out when passing other people at lower speeds i dont know about all that towing something thes cars are a lil on the no balls side .they have to be high in the rpm's to make any h.p. and even then they make lil tork
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
hi. i have a honda civic vti a/t 96 model. Is it advisable to use D2 to downshift from D4 when travelling at high speeds for engine braking? will it damage my tranny? thank you
