My vehicle is shifting like it is slipping, Does it around 30MPH and I made a video of it doing this a few times and few where it did not do it.
Thoughts?
The dealer said it shifts normal and posted no codes. After 2,000 miles it seems it does it more, and maybe it because i am doing more local driving. Only have 15K miles on this 2019 1LT. I was planning on going back to the dealer to take a look at it again.
I saw a bulletin about shifting, but it does not seem to what is happening here.

I can't recall anyone else with your issue. Mine shifts fine, at least to me !

The behavior you are experiencing is referred to as shift flare. Shift flare is a condition that occurs on upshifts resulting in a delay before engaging the next higher gear accompanied by an increase in engine RPM and isn't normal behavior.

wish i had more people choose the survey at the top. I brought it in again, not sure if they did a software update or not, but he told he was going to check. WHen i checked out i didn't talk to the tech. What happened was i went for a test drive with the tech and made it seems that it was normal and he would do some reset. Made it sounds like the transmission learned the way i drive because it has a computer. I consider myself a quiet driver, i don't speed, i don't hammer it, use cruise control all the time over 35. He even said if he replaced it , it would do the same...i didn't understand that one.

I have an open case with Chevy and they reached out via email today, so i replied back that it did it again when i reached the top of the street. If i went to the used car lot and did a test drive, i wouldn't buy this car, to me something is slipping. Part of this that pisses me off, didn't do this for about 6 months so can't be normal if it didn't do it in the timeline. I Will see if things turn around with support. Feel that i may drive it till the power train warranty is done and then dump it.
