A/T shifting

Does the A/T "shiftronic" actually listen to you?
This is probably going to be the deciding factor in which transmission I opt for.
My current car (2010 Kia Forte SX) does not listen to me at the most crucial times, but I do know it's no "sports" car.
When I am on the gas in 2nd gear @ 5k RPM and try to shift up it either won't or there is a big delay (roughly 1-2 seconds).
Even tried different approaches like letting off the gas a little and shifting and just flooring it.
It just doesn't want to shift at higher rpm.
Most of the time I let off the gas a little and it shifts a second later.
How does the VT A/T hold?

Yea it does. No need to downshift when coming up to a stop. The car does all that for ya
You'll be all good in the VT IMO. Downshifts when you need it to when speed goes below 30 and than one you are below 5 you will see it go to 2nd gear the 1st.
