Right gear to drive in
What gear should I be driving my automatic 2001
Acura CL in d4 or d5
Most people just put it in D5 for everything. If you like to use the engine for more control, especially braking, you may select a gear that fits your style of driving; selecting gears based on performance. I prefer to drive my cars in Drive; one-to-one ratio, and downshift to assist braking. Then when going higher speeds, like a continuous fifty or higher, shift to Overdrive.
