Usually you would only use it if you were going up a hill and wanted to keep the transmission from shifting into the overdrive gear.

I have a 5spd kia. Drive in your car should already be Overdrive. I could be wrong, but that's usually how most cars are made. Overdrive basically shifts into it when you are just crusing so you are not cruising at such high RPMS. Saves gas. My fifth gear is overdrive in my car, so when Im going over 35 or 40, Ill pop it into 5th and just cruise at 1 1/2 or 2 grand.

The button on the automatics turns the overdrive off. Otherwise it will automatically go into overdrive, as you said.
