your adding stress to your tranny, you shouldnt do it an automatic tranny can only handle so much stress. only drive in d3 if your going up a hill or something. driving in d3 just gives you more torque to your front wheels since your civic is fwd, dont ever put your car in d2 , its bad . most people shift in to d3 or d2 to help slow them down sometimes ne who ya dont do it!

I own an '06 Civic sedan and I occasionally run up through the gears manually when confronting a steep hill. I never downshift while the conditions are safe, which is almost 99 percent of the time.It's a blast to see how much performance is on tap beyond the automatic shift pattern. Kind of makes me wish I had purchased a manual transmission.

think of it this way... why are you shifting in an automatic, if you wanted to race... why did you buy a civic? why did you buy an automatic? it just doesnt make sense... stop being a ricer. and yes ur tranny will die, why dont u put ur car in netrual... rev up as high as u can, and slap it in drive
