Not many know that automatics can have almost as much control as manual cars. Today i found that out because of sheer curiosity and just a random Idea. I was in 4th gear at 40mph, I turned the Over drive off so I was put into 3rd, then I downshifted into 2nd and I pressed the gas and boy was that a good feeling
all this time And I thought i could never control all the gears. We automatic drivers can control and go through all 4 of our gears as we please! You can start in 1st, shift into 2, shift into D, then turn on overdrive to shift into 4th. Almost exactly like a manual! This is not particularly bad for the trans as long as you dont over rev and down/upshift ina. Reasonable, smart manner. Dont throw it into 2nd at 90mph, then you're screwed....lol. Just felt like sharing this with anyone that doesnt know, I mean I had my car for 1.5 years and I just discovered all the control we have!
