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?

Took my VT in this morning for the splash guard install and while they had it in the shop, they did an update on the ECU regarding the transmission. Haven't driven it enough since to see if there is any noticeable difference.

I wanted an M/T but the wife said no. I am still very happy with the A/T. Seems like a pretty solid unit.
If you are manually shifting, it will down shift automatically when the revs are brought down too far. Otherwise, no it will not.
