If you are doing all in town driving your best bet is D4. If you do a combination of city/highway or all highway driving stay with D5.july31990 said:What is the difference between D4 and D5? What should I be driving in to get the best gas mileage? What are you guys driving in?
I use D4 in town to keep the tranny from "hunting" for 5th gear. 5th gear is a highway cruising gear and I don't do much "cruising" in the city.mdxforever said:
why/how would it help to drive in D4 in town ?
I think that apparent better acceleration in D4 is in your head. From a dead stop the X starts in first gear, regardless of what position the indiactor is in.RSM said:It is apparent that the acceleration from a dead stop is better than if the gear is on D5.
Yeah but why waste the arm motion ? If you're in bumper to bumper traffic, you're not going to be in 5th gear anyway.kunB said:Can we change gears from D4 to D5 and back when the car is in motion. Will it affect the transamission in the long run. I like to use D4 when there is bumber to bumber traffic and then shift to D5 when the road clears up. Iam thinking this should be okay . Right ?
