From a standstill "2" will hold the vehicle in first gear. However, if you shift to "3", the transmission will shift to second. If you then shift back to "2", it will hold the vehicle in second and will not drop back to first unless you slow the vehicle to about 10 mph. It will return to first earlier than it's normal behavior when in "D".
