Car was running perfectly fine!
Do my daily 35 miles to, and back home-work traffic.
After my shift, I want to start my car, but all I heard was a 'click'.
Tried it again, same thing.
Opened the hood, tried it again, same thing. Just 'click'..
Electronics are all fine, no fuse blown; no error codes.
The lights don't even dim when the starter tried.
I tried like 5 times.
Was about to give up, slam the hood, since I was stranded, and facing the 'now what?' question.
Tried it one more time,
Starter functioned just fine.
After my ride home, I try another 3 times, all went fine.

What happened?
Is the cruze known for starter issues?

2011 1.4t Eco 6spd manual, with only 60k miles on it.

I used to have a Chrysler PT Cruiser before, with a bad starter.It would still start the car, but barely.I would imagine the starter had 3 phases, and one went dead.When I started, the lights would dim very much.Not so with the Cruze.If it was a bad battery terminal, I would suspect the lights and dash to work intermittently as well, but it worked just fine.Electronic gremlins?
