VCM II Diagnostics interface installation

My July 27th 2011 SEL Sedan built is currently in the shop for Tranny issues. The dealer offered me to have the new VCM II installed in order to collect data regarding the loss of power I get every day while commuting from home to work and vice versa.

I have accepted to have the module installed and I will work with the dealer to the best of my abilities in order to collect the requested data. Now, I am no car tech or mechanic, however, I will be happy to report back any kind of appropriate feedback in this matter.

I understand the tech will have to set some pretty large parameters as we dont exactly know what we are looking for. I would have preffered to hear the dealer say '' Oh it's a mechanical problem and we'll fix it by changing part number XYZ...'' Saddly it looks like an electronical trouble and those can be a pain to find.

While they work on my car, I am enjoying a SE 2013 loaner that behave like a charm. I wish my SEL would have behaved like this one from day one.

I'll report back when I have more information or news.

Did anyone else had those module installed ? And if so, what was the outcome ?

Thanks to Suss6052, here is a link that explain what the VCM II is.
