My 2011 Chevy Cruze shifts the transmission into neutral when the vehicle is stopped. This is documented in the owner's manual as the "Automatic neutral shift" feature.

It sounds like the clutch isn’t fully disengaging when you push it, and you are feeling the synchros in the transmission clash as a result. Does ...
