    So as the title says, this has happened since I purchased the vehicle. If I turn the car on and then travel for a few yards no matter what speed or whatever, I feel a grind in the gas pedal just for a second then it doesn't happen again for the remainder of that trip, if I turn the car off...

    So i had a little time to wrench on the Cruze today.

I tested clutch function and it was disengaging completely, meaning it was a syncho problem...
