So I have the 2013 2.0T Premium with the 8 speed automatic. I have been using the stick shifter in the car to change gears for many months now. During those months, I noticed that the stick shifter itself had about a 1/2 second lag before it switched gears. Surprisingly today, I tried out the paddle shifters and found out that they changed the gears instantly compared to the stick shifter.

I know it doesn't make much sense because it should be the same, but anyone notice this too?

Yea just like you said maybe like a split second of lag. But that is expected in the lower cost Automatic transmissions.

Paddle and stick send identical signal to the same pins of TCU.
It's just that stick takes longer throw than paddles.
Why would the 2011 have lag for both the paddle and the stick then? I'm not quite understanding that.

What i think he is trying to say is the only lag is in your hand. it physically takes longer to push the stick up than it does to tap the paddle, this is the "Lag" you are feeling.

Oh. That's not what I'm trying to say. I count from the time the shifter hits the top or the bottom.

I have noticed that the stick seems to take a bit longer - particularly in higher rpms. It's obviously not a life changing difference but after playing with both quite frequently... There is something that is slightly off.

Wow, I have NOT noticed this. I'll try to compare tomorrow with mine as I haven't use them all that much and don't pay attention.

There is a delay when using the stick compared to the paddles. The paddles are nearly instantaneous while the stick there is half a second if not sometimes a full second delay before the shift, up or down. I've tested this thoroughly myself, so I find this very true for at least mine.

However, I still use the stick, having myself in 'racecar' stance in city driving is uncomfortable to make me want to use the paddles.

That's what I thought as well. I still use the stick even though there's a slight lag. It's just more fun holding onto a stick rather than using paddle shifters. :)

Interesting. After 35 years of stick use I simply could not get into the paddle shifters, lag or not. If you want instant shifting you need a DCT not a slush box, anyway. When I put my hand on the stick it's like the "old days" of using a slap stick on my Charger (a real one...with a big block...)...except the Hyundai stick cannot take that kind of abuse. I guess it is just what I am used to. Hand on stick and shifts happen when they should. Hmmmm. For daily driving I enjoy not having the manual anymore.

My favorite mode is putting it in sport mode and letting the auto shift. It holds gears a little longer, especially in turns, and keeps you out of overdrive gears until your at highway speeds. It down shifts quicker to.
