    Chevrolet Silverado 2015; transmission slip / power hesitation

    I purchased a new 2015 Chevy Silverado Z71, 2 WD, V-8 about a 2 months ago. Almost immediately, I began to feel a periodic hesitation during shift from 2nd to 3rd. The experience is identical to other reports that I have read on this forum...about 15-25 mpg, the shift either misses or slips, power hesitates enough for me to lunge forward. It's almost as if there is a miscue with he transmission trying to figure out if it needs to utilize 4 cylinders or 8.

    I have a scheduled appointment this morning with the service manager and tech. I have taken it in once already and the dealer response was not encouraging. Any updated info on this would be appreciated.

    If you are not happy with the service from this dealer, take it to a different one. I had to do this with my wife's car a few years ago. The different dealer was very helpful and we purchased our next car there.

    Could be as simple as a programming update. See what the dealer says first.

    Does it still do it in M5?
