whatever your car can do, its not bad for it. now if you modify a chip or something, to get it to do that, then yeah it might be bad for it.

YES its bad......D3 is drive....regular D is over drive.....meaning by having it in D3 ur not letting it shift into high gear (ur trans is a 4 speed)

doing this will tear up ur engine and transmission......

** unless ur towing something or driving in ice or snow ....or similar u should only use the D position on an auto....

It's bad to do 115 in any gear on a public road, if you want to keep your license.
