I'm pretty sure this is normal. When in comfort mode the transmission starts off in second gear unless the pedal is stuffed to the floor, if in sport mode it starts off in first gear no matter the amount of throttle input. I'm sure it's probably so it feels less jerky and less shifts in comfort mode

I think snow mode does that, starts in 2nd gear. So you're asking others to confirm that your observation is standard behavior? I don't have that model so I can't compare, but I would think all modes except snow mode should start out in 1st gear.

If in normal mode, and you pull the shifter over to manual shift it switches from 2 to 1 before you pull it back. I'm assuming if it wasn't supposed to start in 2nd I'd get a check engine light, or the car would be smart enough to alert me. I do notice in sport mode in traffic it seems like it's constantly shifting from 1st to 2nd. So I think normal mode is designed that way so it feels less jerky and shifty
