9 speed transmission

I bought a 2018/2019 Nox 2.0T with the 9 speed transmission. I currently Drive a 2020 Nox 2.0T with the 9 speed transmission,I haven't experienced any roughness in the shifting at all.

9 speed transmission

I don't have a lot of miles on my 2.0t/9sp combo (little over 3800 miles), but so far am pleased with the shift quality. The low speed upshifts are short which is good for fuel economy (the same way you would drive a manual to save gas), but the torque of the engine covers this well (I found this wasn't true when I tried 87 octane).

As has been true since the dawn of transverse front wheel drive, tip-in/tip-out bumps still remain an issue and with so many gear ratios it is easy to have a downshift or upshift event coincide with one of these bumps to give a pretty clunky overall experience.

I have that sometimes, I have 55,000 no difference since new. I have had the tranny serviced at 50,000, it the same. But I don't let it bother me the 9 speed Chevy trans is one of the best today.
