Have never really used paddle shifters and vehicle has not been used for towing.

This condition seems more pronounced in hot weather vs cold. Texas is mostly hot:)

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If the trans fluid level is correct and there is a delay and/or shift quality isue then that does indicate an internal issue in the trans. It will most likely require internal repair or trans replacement, as long as the fluid level is good and the trans controller software is up to date.

Have you checked for fault codes?
