Transmission Starts in 1st


Vehicle Information: Model : Cayenne S; Year: 2004; Mileage: 39000;

When the weather is cold the transmission on my car starts off in 1st rather that 2nd. The shifting also feels less smooth than when it starts off in 2nd. The dealer states that this is normal and that it switches to start in 1st when teh weather is cold to warm the transmission more rapidly. This seems odd to me, as if it is snowing it makes more sense to pull away in 2nd rather than 1st. My question: is the dealer correct?
