Transmission "lugs" after slowing/braking from speed >45, the attempting to lightly accelerate. Acts like a manual transmission does when your in to high of a gear for speed you're going. Power driver sear became stuck in a very forward position. Initially would not track backwards but eventually did. Found broken plastic part under the seat. Seat doesn't always go backwards smoothly on track, wobbles from side to side Advisor from Chevrolet instructed local tech to replace a seal on a valve in transmission to fix low speed lugging issue. Repair reduced lugging issues by 90%, but still occurs at lesser frequency. Dealership did great job locating part.
