Borderlands 2 doesn't save right

When I get to a place that the save symbol appears or arrive at a save station and do a save and quit, starting the game again dumps me at travel station instead of where I left off after saving.

This is normal if memory serves me right, to save to a specific part of an area is only available with fast travel points (non returnable ones aswell), and map transitions. The points that your noticing it save at are new-u stations so that if you go down you spawn there; quitting out brings you to the beginning of the area/ fast travel location

Thanks. I was wondering if there was something in the menus that I missed. Gets tiring to trudge through the same places time and time again, but then I get more loot and know what to expect.
