    Transmission problems with my 2005 STS V8

    When I decide to put the trnsmission into manual mode or "Slap-stick", The gear change is ridiculously slow whenever I do an up or downshift. There is a 1-2 second delay whenever I change gears. Is this normal? Or do I need this transmission repaired? BTW, I just got this vehicle so I'm a newbie

    Normal. Learn to compensate like a real driver.

    Gotta get her shifted before your actual shift point, just like a manual...

    Well yeah, the STS relies on electronic signals...it's not a true manual obviously, its not going to act exactly like one.

    It is not a race car. The manual shift works very well for heavy traffic situations and for downshifting instead of using brakes.

    My shift no longer works? Any ideas what would cause this? It will go into Sport drive, but I cannot manually shift up or down. Auto works fine.
