Have Honda Questions? Ask a Honda Repair Expert.
First, you can drive it in the city at lower speeds in D3 without any problems at all. However, since the transmission is failing, eventually you will likely loose those gears as well.
Second, I would discuss installing a used transmission with the dealer instead of this reman, it could save you several thousand dollars.
Finally, take it to a transmission shop, at least call around and see if a transmission shop can repair it for you.
Hope this helps.
