Default 2008 Acura Rl SH-AWD

i am about to buy this model but after i read some info from wiki, i just get confused. here is the info:

20052008 RL SH-AWD operating parameters include:
  • During straight-line cruising and moderate cornering below about half throttle, up to 70 percent of the torque is delivered to the front wheels
  • In full-throttle straight line acceleration, up to 40 percent of the power is sent to the rear axle
  • In hard cornering, up to 70 percent of available torque goes to the rear wheels for enhanced chassis balance
  • Up to 100 percent of this torque can be applied to the outside rear wheel if the situation dictates
  • SH-AWD is active in second through fifth forward gears.
what is that mean? does it mean acura's awd system only works from second gear? if i'm stuck in snow, it's not gonna work?
