    I've never heard of clutch plates causing rough idle. How does that happen exactly? Is it related to a worn throw out bearing that causes drag or warped clutch plate springs or something?

    The automatic Cruze has a feature that puts the trans into a partial nuetral when at a stop.....a fuel saving trick.
    Some of the cars were assembled with clutch plate variences that exceeded the specification.
    What happens then is, while stopped, the trans will disengage/reengage about every three to five seconds.
    The feeling is that of someone bumped the rear of the car.....each time it re-engages.
    The operator often describes the feeling as a bump or, in this case, a vibration while stopped.

    The repair is replacement of the clutch discs and various apply springs.....

    I'm having a similar issue with my 2014 Cruze LT 1.4l Turbo. when i first start it and come to a stop light feels like it's idling rough (can feel it in the seat) the RPM's dont move at all. If i put it in neutral it idles fine. After it's warmed up it seems to idle fine at stop lights. Spark plug or coil pack or throttle body maybe? Also i did have my intake manifold and pcv valve cover replaced in july of this year. My car has 41500 miles

I can’t say I’m very happy having a car with 35k miles andhaving to have the transmission worked on. Ugg
    I know this is a really old thread but after owner my 2014 Cruze for 3 years I still have this problem. Intermittent and 2 Dealerships had no clue why or couldn't duplicate it. My Bumper to Bumper expired this past Feb (2019) but I still have the powertrain warranty plus the GMPP. Was this covered 100%?

    Have you tried switching the gearshift to "manual" at the stop light? If it's what I think it is, switching to manual will stop it, and it's pretty much "proof" of what's wrong.

    Exactly, the past 3 years when it does it I either switch to Neutral or over to Manual to make it stop (just have to remember to switch it back to D when the light changes, a few "Oh crap" moments have happened). Some times it does it worse than others but still 85% of the time it does it.
    I have a oil change appointment today at my local dealer so I called to them with the Service Bulletin number and they said they are going to keep my car and give me a loaner while they diagnose. Afterwards I called GM Service to make sure that it would be covered and they said that since my car was build 12/20/2013 and the bulletin says until 8/1/2013 there isnt a flag on my car showing a recall but if the dealer confirms that this IS the problem it will be covered under powertrain warranty. I really hope that its an easy in and out because I know 110% that this is my problem....

    Well........... Dropped my car off yesterday and gave them the printed service bulletin and told them what my car is doing. Got my loaner car and was on my way. Today they called me stating that they could not reproduce the concern and that my car is "running amazing".... I told her that I dont accept that answer cause I know 100% what it is doing cause I drive it daily and I refuse to pay ~$80 for you to just say sorry no idea now pay me and get out. They transferred me to the service manager and he said "sorry, my tech has almost an hour in this and if you want more tech time it will cost you more so you either need to drop off the rental and pay the fee or I will have my tech invest more time and you will pay more"....
    Called up GM service and they are now escalating the issue and a Sr Adviser will contact me in 2 days. Guess I have to pay the fee like a punk and hopefully GM will do something about it later....
    I was soooooo happy that my car was FINALLY going to be fixed because putting my car in Neutral or Manual at every light is super annoying, and ghetto, and now this.... So sick of all these money hungry dealerships that dont give a **** about you unless your emptying your wallet....

    You may need to take a drive with them to show them the problem.

    Yesterday on my way to the dealer with my tail between my legs the service manager called me up saying after we spoke he personally went and test drove my car. He said that he does feel the vibration and slight bumping and he believes it is directly related to the service bulliten I stated. He said however my powertrain warranty expired 2 months ago and this would be out of pocket, go figure. Thankfully I purchased the Ally Major Guard Coverage when I got my car so $100 deductible is all I should have to pay.
