Welcome to Just Answer My name is***** here to help you with your problem. If you are just driving normally just use D5 the transmission will determine what gear to use . The other gears are not really needed unless for some reason you are pulling a heavy load up or down a steep hill. The engine computer will TAKE ALL THE DRIVING CONDITIONS INTO ACCOUNT AND SELECT THE PROPER GEAR FOR YOU.
