Ok, I think I noticed something in this video; please correct me if I'm wrong.

Does the 09 Malibu in manual mode display other information while displaying the gear indicator (or was I seeing the default temp / odometer)? Other than my vibration, this is the biggest annoyance of my 08 LTZ, that in Manual mode I do not have access to any of the driver information center.

that is better than my 08 but would really like to see Inst MPG or Temp while in manual mode.... I really feel there should be a dedicated display for the gear indicator.

When in manual what RPM were you shifting? couldn't see the Tach ;)
In the last part of the video I shifted a tad bit to late, there is a delay from the time you shift up to when it actually shifts but it was pretty close to red line
