Hi, Lagdti is right, its for pulling away in the snow/slippy conditions, the box starts in 2nd gear until traction is detected then it returns to "normal" .... same effect as starting to pull away in 2nd or 3rd in a manual car ... reduces the wheel slip.
Hope it helps
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
