Hi all, I have a 09 LTZ with the V6, and today I was on the highway doing about 60, when I kicked it down all the way and it downshifted to 3rd. I noticed there was a slight lag though, almost like it was slowing down and i felt my body momentum go forward a bit before it actually got into gear and went. Its almost like theres no power for a split second, but its noticeable. 6 to 4 is fine, and I verified this lag on M mode. It doesn't happen all the time, maybe 1 out of 5 times, but I noticed it a couple of times today when I kept doing it on the highway to verify. it just seems like it takes a bit longer to down shift to 3rd.

I've driven a manual for all my life, and on automatics I've only driven 5 speeds. Does the Malibu just take a bit longer to down shift? I'm sure that its fine, I've never noticed any tranny issues, but I was just wondering what you all have experienced.

Thanks
