I’m having the same problem with my 2015 Chevy Cruze LT. It won’t do it one day and then it will do it the next day, I almost cause a accident this morning going to school.I went to take off to get onto the highway and my car stalled and wouldn’t go I had to let off the gas then easy on it. When I set my Cruze it cuts out going down the highway. If anyone knows why it’s doing it please say something.
