On the auto trans, there's D 3 2 on the shifter and you can "downshift" from D to the lower gears. The most important thing to watch is the speed in gears. On the speedometer you'll see the dots on the scale, which designate, not shift points, but the MAX speed for that gear when downshifting, otherwise you risk overrevving the valvetrain.

the point is the benz lets you shift while driving. i tried that on a camry adn it jerked nasty. even though my benz is 21 years young, it never let me down. never.
