1998 Saturn coupe - Saturn gurus tell me if I messed up!

Back in February I bought a 1998 Saturn coupe. It's an automatic, which I never usually buy, but it was super clean and only had 142k KMs (88k miles). I sold my Acura a few days ago so I decided to put the Saturn on the road for now. Now I just noticed that the shifter just has a D on it, but no overdrive? Please tell me I didn't buy some ghetto base model that only has a 3 speed in it! I didn't even think to check that when I bought it, I figured everything had an overdrive by 1998! So is that a Saturn thing, or is this a non-overdrive equipped car?

According to Wikipedia, they came with a 4-speed auto or 5-speed manual. So you have overdrive, you just can't kick it out of overdrive with the shifter.

All s-series automatics are 4spd

Vskid3 - you can move the shifter to "3" to drop out of overdrive
