Welcome to the forum!

Does it just feel like it goes into neutral? Or does it go from D to N on the dash?

Your owners manual: Page 9-34.......Section N (Neutral) explains the design and purpose for the trans to go into neutral when stopped in Drive.

Thank you all for your input, I did find the manual explaining that it is normal for it to go into neutral at a stop. and in a forward gear, its a fuel economy thingy. page 9-37

So you have the Stop/Start Technology in your CRUZE? If I take my foot of the Brake with the Automagic Transmission I am propelled into the car in front of me, pretty much like every other car I've driven

Eddy, there is a very slight engagement delay that occurs when the brake pedal is released.......very sensitive drivers can pick up on the sensation but the vast majority never notice it.......when I had my Cruze I had to force myself to feel it occur......on the 2015 Trax I am currently driving there is a rather noticeable delay from brake release to trans engagement.
I just write it off to production varience....doesn't really bother me.

Hard to disagree with that as the CRUZE (my CRUZE) is pathetic off the line although 89 octane somewhat helps with the lag and I am not referring to the Turbo lag. I just don't get it and really feel these modern sub 140 HP Cars (Turbo or not) are quite dangerous. Why my 86 Turbo Colt with 100 HP knocked you back from a start in 1st gear and also had high end power as well. I've never owned a Car that couldn't chirp a tire off the line and that includes my Pony (Hyundai Excel).

Welcome to CruzeTalk. What you're describing is the shift to neutral feature in the Gen 1 automatic Cruzes that's supposed to save gas.
