Hi all,

I hope someone can shed some light on my problem.

The clutch works perfectly fine when taking off from a standstill position.
When in traffic and you move forward slowly like 5km/h in 1st gear push the clutch in and as soon as the traffic goes and you release the clutch (while in movement) the clutch shudders.

It doesn't do it all the time but fairly regularly. Is this a defect that must be seen to or is it just how the Cruze operate? Maybe just go to 2nd gear while rolling forward?

Your comments will be appreciated.

What RPM are you at? That slow you will probably have to ride the clutch a little to get the RPM up. More than likely that is your engine starting to stall then a slipping clutch, you'd be more apt to notice a clutch at higher RPM. If you are below 1500RPM you are in the zone of the engine not having enough power to move the car.

Thanks

You right because when I crank up the revs its much better.
And if it was a faulty clutch it would of shuddered from a standing start aswell right?
So I'm sure I have nothing to worry about, just need to learn the car's ways.
Thanks for your reply.

Depends on what is wrong with the clutch, normally slippage is more obvious at higher RPM
