    I can always tell when the car regens as it starts to buck and jerk around most noticeably at lower rpm/slower speeds. This is accompanied by my boost gauge showing wildly jumping values from boost to vacuum and back again. Anybody else have this happen?

    Just bought a new 2017 Cruze, only about 120 miles on it, and last night I had experienced a bit of "jerkiness" when driving around town. It seems to be when the car is shifting gears. Is this something that goes away after a while? Is it just a new vehicle working out the kinks and I'm being...

    Well I am not sure if this is paranoia or I simply don't trust the car anymore, but whatever the reason is. I am just wanting to get some better thoughts of others & if this is simply normal for the Cruze. Well the other day I notice my Cruze when it came out of 2nd into 3rd it was more jerky...

    So I've noticed since I got it whenever my car is warmed up to operating temperature, the 2-3 shift (auto) is jerky. The revs don't shoot up or anything it just kinda feels like what I assume sport mode in a tuned cruze would feel like, though mines stock. And it's only the 2-3 shift under light...

    Now I know the car is cold and has to warm up, some lag is to be expected and no transmission lock, but here's the thing... Never had a problem until it started to warm up outside. Now if the car has been sitting overnight when I first leave to work the few few miles are horrible. It almost...
  6. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I've noticed a couple times in slow-and-go traffic (not stop-and-go) I'll be coasting at 1-2 MPH with my foot gently on the brake, then when it's time to move I apply the gas. I'll start gaining speed so I know the transmission is engaged but roughly 1-2 seconds after applying the gas I get a...

    I had an odd experience today. I've had my Cruze about 6 months and he has about 6,000 miles on him. Today when pulling up to a red light I braked as normal and the car was very jerky. The pedal vibrated heavily and it felt as if I had lost traction or the brakes were not gripping. There was a...

    I am about the order a 2014 Cruze 1LT Automatic but I am getting a bit concerned about all the posts I have read about the jerky, confused auto transmissions in the current Cruze. On my drive home from work, I am in some stop and go traffic and have read the transmission is very tiresome with...

    My 2012 LS cruze shifts hard. I've taken it to the dealership twice and they seem to not feel or find anything wrong. I've driven with them and pointed it out and they say it's normal. The shift is most hard from 1st to 2nd and little easier into 3rd - mainly happens when the car is cold. No...

    I put this in the wrong sub forum... but you can blame that on the page's super slow loading times! the page shifted last second when I was clicking the link=p I just thought of something and I want to know if any of you think this is possible. My 2011 A/T jerks into 4th gear sometimes...

    Hi, i own a 2010 1.8lt AT Cruze LT Sometimes when diving slightly uphill the car has this jerky movement caused by the transmission up shifting, it feels like the gear kicks in very roughly. Has anybody experienced this? Thanks
  12. Gen1 1.8L
    I thought it was supposed to get smoother after the first few hundred miles or so? The Cruze has over 2,000 miles on it and it's still jerky. It just came back from the dealership for warranty work, so if there was a problem I would think they would have fixed it, or at least told us about it...

    I just purchased a 1LT Cruze Automatic transmission with 279 miles on it, and had a couple questions about the car. The transmission seemed kinda jerky. When taking off from a stop, and when it shifted gears, it seemed to jerk quite a bit. Is this because it's new or is that the way it's gonna...
