WK 3.6L... no 1-2 gear or tow/haul?

I didn't notice this before, but am I right in that my 3.6L GC QTI has no way to select 1-2 gear?

What are you supposed to do when going down mountains when it says, "Use low gear."

From what I've read on the lower section of the shifter there is a "-" & "+" stamped on the console. If you bump it to the left it will downshift to the next gear in sequence. Bump to the right it upshifts to the next gear in sequence. As far as downshifting is concerned I believe it will only allow you to go into lowest gear that you can safely go into based on rpm.

Don't worry, bluetrude has it right. You can select the top gear you want the transmission to use, using the left-right stick moves.
