Re: Accelerating in D2
Is the OP from snow country?
I am a D2 user.
I read somewhere D2 is good for accelerating on slippery surfaces. Of course you should shift up to D for cruising.
(In snow and ice conditions I usually turn off the traction control and spin the tires...this behavior aggravates my wife. Her reaction always amuses me)
I use D2 when I leave the house in the morning. There is a half mile hill that ends at a "T" intersection, with a light, that usually requires you to stop.
I use the D2 to hold my speed at 25 not touching the gas pedal. Most people like to go down the hill faster. They have to brake hard at the bottom of the hill due to the usually red light and the 45 degree curve just before the light. There is a 15 mph speed limit. This is a condo complex, we own the road.
