USING CRUISE CONTROL

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See CRUISE CONTROL SAFETY.

Cruise control allows the vehicle to automatically maintain a set vehicle speed. Controls mounted on the steering wheel are used to operate the system. The driver can also intervene, at any time, by using the brake or accelerator pedals.

  1. Speed control switch and RES button:

    Move the switch upward to select SET+.

    Move the switch downward to select SET-.

    Press the button to select RES.

  2. CAN cancel button.

  3. LIM button.

NOTES

Do not use cruise control when driving off-road.

Press the LIM button (3) to toggle between cruise control and speed limiter. The instrument panel displays the information lamp for the selected system. See SPEED LIMITER (GREEN) and CRUISE CONTROL (GREEN).

While driving at the desired speed, briefly move the speed control switch (1) upward to the SET+ position to activate cruise control. The instrument panel displays an information lamp to confirm that the system is operational. See CRUISE CONTROL (GREEN)

Cruise control icon.

The cruise control icon on the steering wheel controls also illuminates to confirm that the system is operational.

Move the speed control switch upward to the SET+ position to increase the set speed:

  • A single movement of the switch increases the vehicle's speed by 2 km/h (1 mph).

  • Hold the speed control switch in the SET+ position to increase the vehicle's speed by 10 km/h (5 mph).

Alternatively, press the accelerator pedal to increase the set speed. When the new desired speed is reached, move the speed control switch upward briefly to the SET+ position.

NOTES

Cruise control cancels if the accelerator pedal is pressed to override the system for more than one minute.

Move speed control switch downward to the SET- position (1) to reduce the set speed:

  • A single movement of the switch reduces the vehicle's speed by 2 km/h (1 mph).

  • Hold the speed control switch in the SET- position to reduce the vehicle's speed by 10 km/h (5 mph).

Press the CAN button (2) to cancel cruise control. The set speed is retained in the system's memory until the vehicle's ignition is switched off.

Press the RES button (1) to resume the set speed from the system's memory.

WARNING

The RES button should only be used if the driver is aware of the set speed and intends to return to it. Pressing the RES button inadvertently may lead to a loss of control of the vehicle, vehicle damage, or personal injury.

To activate the cruise control system when the vehicle is stationary:

  1. Press and hold the brake pedal.

  2. Select Drive (D) or Sport (S) using the gear selector.

  3. If the set speed has already been set, press the RES button to recall the set speed.

  4. If the set speed has not already been set, move the speed control switch to the SET+ position and release to initially select 16 km/h (10 mph).

  5. Use the speed control switch to adjust the desired set speed.

  6. Release the brake pedal. The vehicle pulls away from stationary to the set speed.
