What is overdrive on any car and when should it be used?

Overdrive is basically the cruising gear. In a car with an automatic transmission, you can drive in OD all the time. You should be driving in OD anytime you are traveling over 40-45 MPH. (This is the speed at which your car will automatically) shift into OD if you have it placed in that gear to start with. OD saves strain on the transmission and I would speculate the drive train, also. Your car will coast more easily in OD and use less fuel. The only time I consider not using OD is when I am in town at speeds under 40 MPH.
