Jeepster09 Thanks, I contacted Trifecta and yes it will re-calibrate rev limiter [speed limiter]. They will re set limiter to match tire speed rating. Mine are at 130.

I haven't tried to go that fast but I'm pretty sure it does. Best thing would be to ask Trifecta directly tho.

My 2016 LTZ does the same thing and I also noticed it happens more if I am taking a left turn. Very strange and it has done it since day 1, dealer tells me it is normal so I just live with it. It doesn't do it all the time, very hard to recreate it.

elektrosoundwave I'm glad it's not just me. I get it going from 1st to 2nd every so often. Higher speeds, I might have a little bit of hesitation, but it's the most noticeable 1st to 2nd. Temperature doesn't matter.

2018 Premier with 40,600 miles on it currently.

(it gives you a "delay" feeling, even to the point of feeling like the engine slightly loosed power during that 2-3 shift) Ours certainly doesn't feel anything like a "slipping" situation. I don't think it does this under hard acceleration, but I'll have to try that. It certainly does it with a cold engine/transmission, but I think not so much when everything is up to normal operating temps.

I agree that is probably a "programming" issue of some sort, especially since this transmission is totally computer controlled. -or I should say controlled by too many computer inputs? I really doubt it is any sort of mechanical issue,,,,

Has anyone got any more answers yet??

Thanks.
No answers, but same problem with 2017, LT, 3.6

Let us know what the dealer discovers if anything.

Lets hope that's how the transmission is programmed. Although it sounds identical to the first symptoms I got when the 35r wave plate went in my wifes G6 with the 6 speed.

Angus576 I have read that many people notice this transmission slip. My 2015 V6 does the samething and I don't have a tune. If I drive like an old man I won't see it, if I drive aggressively I may notice it but if I drive normally I see it all the time. I think it's how they programmed the transmission software. If not then it's an issue GM will ignore until it becomes a major issue and force a recall.

This causes a delay in switching gears. It will do it no matter how I accelerate. I have the trifecta tune but don't think this is the cause as it will still do it when I engage cruise control(tune off). Am I the only one experiencing this issue?

PS. I have the 3.6l v6.
I had the same issue when shifting into 3rd when turning left or trying to pass. Took my car in 3 times to the dealer. Each time they said no issue found and I codes. Just before I took it in for an an change at 47,000 miles, i was checking the air filter and noticed the air tube that goes from the air filter to the throtal boby had a tear in the flex part. After doing a quick fix by using electrical tape until can get a new one ordered. My shifting problems went away. The problem was extra air entering past the air flow sensor and the computer couldn't compensate and add fuel.

jtrosky Strange... I wonder if the 4-cylinder uses the same trans? Maybe it's a 6T50 instead of a 6T70 or something?

We'll have to have someone with a V6 and a 4 cylinder model check to see if they have a trans dipstick.

Is there actually a dipstick on the 9th gens?

The top image shows the V6 and the bottom one shows the I4. On the V6, number 6 is listed as "Transmission Fluid Cap and Dipstick (Out of View)." in my 2015 manual. On the I4, it's just listed as "Transmission Fluid Cap."

So I suppose the answer is "maybe"?

bignick2015 Never noticed a 3-4 slip but sometimes the shifts are slow in general.

First thing I would check is the fluid level, there is apparently a dipstick for it but the manual says this:

Quote:
There is a special procedure for checking and changing the transmission fluid. Because this procedure is difficult, you should have this done at your dealer service department. Contact your dealer for additional information or the procedure can be found in the service manual. To purchase a service manual, see Service Publications Ordering Information on page 13-11.
I think I read earlier on the forum that with a COLD IDLING engine, the fluid should barely touch the bottom of the dipstick - but I can't recall if this is for 8th or 9th gen cars with the six-speed auto.
