The first "generation" early-C6 paddle shift was none too great. It was way too slow in shifting. GM heard that legitimate customer complaint and in 2011 model year, reduced shifting time by a full 40%. Much better! But still not good enough. GM again improved paddle-shifting times in C7 -- by another 40%.My experience with paddle shifting on a single clutch transmission is that when down shifting, it takes half a block for it to get in the next lower gear. Is it that bad on the C7?
