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 in 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.

WARNING

In certain conditions, such as a steep gradient, the vehicle's speed may exceed the set cruising speed. This is because engine braking is unable to maintain or reduce the vehicle's speed. Driver intervention may be required.

NOTES

Cruise control is not available when using Hill Descent Control (HDC) or when a Terrain response special program has been selected, except for the Grass-Gravel-Snow (GGS) program.

NOTES

Do not use Cruise control when driving off-road.

NOTES

Do not use Cruise control with SPORT (S) mode selected.

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

    The cruising speed can also be increased by using the accelerator pedal. 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. CANCEL: 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 Hill Descent Control (HDC) or Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) are activated.

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.

NOTES

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