Not sure on the Buick, but the performance shift button usually allows the transmission to hold the gear longer when you accelerate quickly. So your not noticing the extra few seconds it stays in the lower gears?


this is my 2nd GS and that is correct it does not hold the gear, therefore the performance shift is not active even when the light comes on from me pushing the button


so its not the button its what ever the button activates or a broke wire ... But where and what makes the tranny hold the gear longer
