I use them all the time, mostly when going down a hill to downshift...

In S-mode constantly and tap-shift almost every trip... still wish these were +/- paddle-shifters like on my 2004 Grand Prix GTP...

The rental (Camaro) I had last October was an auto, I played with the tap shifting for a bit but that delay from when you hit the paddle to when the car actually shifts annoyed me.

I don't tend to use it in town very much, but when I get out on the road, especially in the corners I like to use it.

I mainly use them driving in the mountians, either downshifting for engine braking on steep hills, or downshifting to keep the transmission from hunting (constantly shifting from 6th down to 4th and back up again) going uphills on cruise control.

I use it sometimes. Some people have been complaining about lag, but the lag is about the same all the time, so you can usually predict the shift.

Works great on road courses and mountain roads!

Not so much around town.
