Manual Pg 247 sez "D (Drive) Transmission operates in gears one through six."   Page 248 sez  "after deactivating
overdrive cancel/grade assist transmission control switch again  and the transmission will operate in

here i found some info. Drive with Overdrive (O/D) cancel and grade assist is activated when the Transmission Control Switch (TCS) is pressed. The TCS is located on the selector lever knob. When the TCS is pressed, the 6th gear or O/D upshift is prevented or the transaxle shifts down to 5th gear. The TCS is meant to be used when driving conditions cause excessive shifting from 6th to other gears such as hilly terrain, mountainous areas or when engine braking is required.
