I use D3 for city driving and D4 for highway type roads.

If you can't figure out what gear you should be in with an automatic do you think a stick shift is gonna be a good idea, lol, jk

So D3 for city driving? what speeds would that be up too?
D4 for racing or highway?

I only use D3 in stop and go traffic. Any other time I stay in D4.

Omg...

Put it in d4 all the time. It's an automatic transmission, that means it shifts automatically
If you put it d3 it still shifts normally it just won't go into 4th gear, thats all. It doesn't shift any quicker or downshift or anything. Just leave it in d4 and go.

I also have an automatic. I put it in D4 but sometimes i accidentally do D3 (but i can hear when i don't shift into 4th). To get the best gas milage, put it in D4, get to 4th gear (mine shifts around 34mph) and stay there as long as possible!

Drag racing has a lot of automatics. like crazy 3-spd automatics. Of course, they're probably not rocking the stock transmissions...
