Your numbers aren't that far off...the mpg posted is established using professional drivers...I could likely coax a few more mpg out of your car if I drove it because I know how. Generally, today's new engines do not need any "break in" so it should have adequate power right out of the box! There may not be any updates for the computer, but the map sensor should be able to compensate for altitude changes. Using a synthetic oil can help a bit as well.
I'd try and find out if there were any optional transmission or final drive gear options offered for different localities. That may affect both mpg and performance. As for shifting, (as well as everything else you mentioned, I'd definitely contact factory customer service if you aren't getting anywhere with your dealer) The car didn't cost $5.00, and therefore I would take it to the "next level" if you aren't happy with it!!

You will have 2 fuse boxes in this vechile.
The first is under the hood. The second is located in the LEFT side rear compartment. This is where you are going to find the AUX Volt. fuse #243 is the circuit number, the wire will be YELLOW.
Good luck, by the way this is for the extended sedan model

Is the power steering belt making any noise, skreeching etc?
Check your fluid level for the power steering, it could be low or even leaking as it sounds like air is getting into the system, make sure the belt is tight enough also.

SOURCE: What are the risks of
The steering is extremely heavy if the power steering has failed and it is VERY DANGEROUS to attempt to drive the car in this condition. The car was not designed to be steered without the power assistance. You should not attempt it and the vehicle is NOT roadworthy. You will impair your insurance coverage if you knowingly drive the vehicle in this condition and expose yourself to criminal charges if you injure anyone.
The cost of repair depends entirely on the nature of the fault, the parts prices and labor rates charged at different workshops. If the problem is a result of a leaking/damaged power steering hose that needs replacing the costs will be moderate. If the power steering pump has failed and needs replacing it will be more expensive in labor and parts.
You need to find a competent mechanic familiar with Chevs and have the car towed to his premises for repair. The car needs to be put on a hoist to be properly inspected and repaired competently.
Alternatively you could try one of the mobile auto repair services if you have one operating in your area.
