Seriously, it's going to be OK.

Times change, accept it.

He just asked out of curiosity, you know what it's like, this is as you can see new technology to a lot of people. Me included, there's going to be a lot of questions. I believe that it's good to bring this stuff up. To a certain degree a little apprehension and a lot of curiosity should in the long run assist in the development of Chevy's system.

I'm sure researchers have access to case study's and other information that can help achieve this. That said I'm sure that consumer input would play a large part. Concerns brought up in this forum I'd imagine won't be solely referenced in research but I'd like to believe that they would be echoed by multiple sources. Because when more information starts to come out about this, a lot of these questions are going to end up being answered in articles. A lot of which may not have been answered had they not been asked. If I had to conduct research of any kind, I would want to get input from the widest spectrum of my target demographic.

Really, who better to gather info from than the very people who want to use your product?

My '16 Malibu 2.0T came with the Aisin 8 speed, now a 9 speed? With these hollow heavily electronic controlled tranny cases compared to the older mechanical ones, it is easy and cheap to throw in another planetary gearset to gain extra gears, but the increased hunting and shifting of the closer ratio gears is not worth the few drops of gas you save.

Glad I bought the '17 Impala V6 because even 6 spd is pushing it when its' shift points are at low speed turns.
