Its a old button for a certain gear. Say you are in overdrive but going up a hill and you need to down shift, hit that button and the car will automatically downshift until you release that button. The same thing applys as when going down a hill, you will want to keep the car at a lower gear so not as to use the brakes as much. It will slow you down automatically.
