Just wanted to note that, according to the manual, L is actually 2nd and S is 3rd. And the transmissions are 4 speed transmissions.

The diesel automatics start in first gear, so putting in it L makes it start in first and then shift to second. Actually, I seem to recall putting in it L forces it to also sit in first...
Normally in D when you come to a stop it should shift into 2nd gear to avoid rolling back and creeping, then as soon as you accelerate it shifts into first. If you have the cable up to the throttle linkage adjusted correctly you shouldn't notice this happening.


I think gas cars start in 2nd unless you floor it and hit the switch under the gas pedal, but I've never owned one so I'm not entirely sure.
