Thank you for your support,
I had that same feeling after my car was repaired. It was like the abrupt change to having a firm clutch pedal was jarring, and it made me think there was a problem that had been slowly getting worse for months and that I only noticed it right at the end when the clutch went VERY soft.It's been a couple of days driving my "new" car and I must say it does not feel the same at all. There was definitely something wrong from the factory.
Have you done any maintenance? Have you done a clutch bleed? New Fluid? A 6 year old car (if it has an original battery) may be on its way out. I am finding more and more with these cars (and all cars for that matter) that regular pre-emptive maintenance is the key to avoiding problems. If I have a car battery older then 5 years, I just change it, and continue to have worry free thoughts as my experience tells me (especially in the colder climate of Canada) You should always have a newish battery in your car.I have a 2015 and my clutch pedal will stick halfway to the floor and I literally have to pick it up with my foot and then everything goes back to normal I agree a car this new should not have problems oh and let me add it’s very hard to go into gear sometimes and when I break at night everything dims headlights interior lights tail lights
You are a God send. I don't know how I missed this. I have a LS. I thought it was the clutch. It kept doing it randomly though. Day it got towed in no issues. What the hell man.There IS a TSB on this issue. It has to do with a part of the clutch hydraulics that gets clogged and blocks fluid flow. Have the dealership show you the TSB.. I'll try to find the number and post it here. IT IS A KNOWN PROBLEM with the clutch hydraulics on this car, and as others have stated, it requires transaxle removal to replace it.. so no dealership is going to WANT to do the fix, as that is a big job, and one can assume GM does not well compensate them for the work.
Powertrain. If you still are covered. Call GM/Chevy to verify. I had to do a lot of phone callsGod help you. If you still have powertrain warranty coverage, that's your best chance.
NO! Find a GM service center. IF you are under the powertrain warranty it should be replaced BY warranty.I appreciate all this information. The clutch pedal on my 2018 Cruze would not come off the floor a couple of times recently and the car would not shift gears. I father from comments above that it is a defective slave cylinder/clutch actuator, which requires pulling the transmission to replace. Costly job even if you can get the part, which apparently retails for $100 or less.
They owe you a replacement of the slave cylinder.I own a 2017 Cruze with only a little over 25,000 miles. My powertrain warranty runs out Oct 2, 2022. My clutch pedal has been sticking about an inch and a half from the floor since early July. I have been to a dealer who says they ordered parts for it at the very beginning of August. (Cost me $149 for the service call ) I have a trouble ticket in with Chevy but the lady that has my case hasn't responded for about two weeks even after I talked to two other people at Chevy who said she would contact me that day. I'm ready to get my congressman and Pittsburgh TV news involved. Half the time my clutch is fine and the other half of the time it gives me trouble like making me pull it up with my foot. I'm worried that the clutch doesn't completely engage when the pedal sticks and I am going to have a burnt out clutch pad by the time this ever gets fixed (assuming GM even honors their warranty instead of pushing me past Oct 2 and saying I'm out of warranty).
As long as the problem is diagnosed and is in the computer for repair while the warranty is in effect, it's covered by warranty.Update to the above: The GM representative was off sick and did call me this morning when he got back to work. The parts are on order and he has already requested that the parts be shipped asap as they are all on backorder. GM seems like they are on the ball. He assured me my car would be taken care of.

I discovered this when I had a CEL come on while I was out-of-town. I phoned my dealership service guy on Friday and set it up to be looked at, but I pointed out that the mileage on the car was going to roll over past the warranty because I was going to use the car for the weekend before I got it to him on Monday afternoon. He got the mileage entered into the computer and told me that tip - as long as the work order is open (not closed out) while the warranty is in effect, it's covered. After they did the repair on my car (replaced a sensor) he kept the ticket open another week just to make sure I could drive the car and nothing else happened with it going bad again.
My only other suggestion to you is that if the parts haven't arrived to repair your car, you drop it off at the dealership on September 30 and leave it with them. You should get a loaner car from them. If the balk, you can explain that you have to leave it with them so that it's in their hands while still under warranty.My powertrain warranty runs out Oct 2, 2022
Interesting idea. GM has told me that it will be covered under warranty whenever the parts arrive. Do you still think I should do that?My only other suggestion to you is that if the parts haven't arrived to repair your car, you drop it off at the dealership on September 30 and leave it with them.
