welcome to the club!!
document everything, every single times its and issue. ask them to do the software update AGAIN (remember, it's TWO different updates they have to make) and then if it doesn't work... ask for a buy back or trade assist into a manual version.

The dealer "reloaded the GM software" last week at the dealer but it is still not changing gears correctly. Any advice
