When you go out on the highway you'll just hear the higher rpm'* and remember to put it back in OD
That'* betting on me actually hearing it and then realizing that it'* actually the motor not being totally normal (so, maybe, I'm just not that in tune with my car....).
I have actually been in traffic, in D or 3rg gear... Then I get out of traffic and wonder why the trans isn't going into OD.... The I notice and think Oh... I'm not in OD... <--- Scares me into thinking the trans quit going into OD...LMAO
