USING CRUISE CONTROL

WARNING

The driver must always make sure that a safe speed is maintained within the speed limit, taking account of traffic and road conditions.

Do not use cruise control in heavy traffic or conditions where a constant road speed cannot be safely maintained, such as on roads that are winding, wet with rain or snow, slippery or unpaved.

The system is operated by controls mounted on the steering wheel. The driver can also intervene, at any time, by use of the brake or accelerator pedals.

  1. SET+: Press to set the speed or to increase the set speed. The Cruise control warning lamp will illuminate to confirm that Cruise control is operational (see CRUISE CONTROL (GREEN)).

    The cruising speed can also be increased using the accelerator. When the desired speed is reached, press the button to set and maintain the new speed and then release the accelerator.

    NOTES

    Cruise control can only be engaged at speeds in excess of 18 mph (30 km/h).

  2. RES: Press to resume the set speed.

    CAUTION

    It is not recommended to resume the set speed when a low gear is selected, as excessive engine speeds will occur. RES should be used only if the driver is aware of the set speed and intends to return to it.

  3. Press to decrease the set speed.

  4. CAN: Press to cancel, but retain the set speed in the memory.

    Cruise control will also be canceled if the brake pedal is pressed, the gear selector is moved to Neutral (N), or if DSC is activated.

NOTES

If the accelerator pedal is pressed for more than 5 minutes, Cruise control will be canceled.
