Good morning,

After many years away from domestic cars I decided to try chevy again and am not exactly off to a great start. I picked up a 2013 6spd Cruze with 35k miles on it and within the first week had to have the entire tranny replaced because of metal shavings in the fluid.

So after that, I've noticed that the clutch pedal is now making a weird rattle/clunk when pressed down to the stop. Didn't do this before the tranny change. It happens if the car is off or running.

Is this normal for the car or should I suck it up and go back to the dealer again? My concern is getting stuck with a bill because I don't believe the clutch falls under the power train warranty and I've read that it could possibly be caused by crappy plastic/ design of the pedal mechanism. And that the dash has to come out to dix it lol.

I really like the car but these issues are starting to make me doubt buying it.

Lol ****. I can almost feel my wife's "I told you so" stare now. I have owned the car for just over one month and drove it a total of six days with the rest in a loaner while mine was worked on. I'm starting to miss my Honda with 200k on it lol.

Since they installed a new tranny would chevy have filled the fluid to the new levels? I really like the design and features of the first gen Cruze ( I had a 2017 Cruze as a loaner and I thought it looked like a weird Honda Civic) and I hope that this is just a few teething problems. I can't afford for something major to go to crap.
