Do not use cruise control on winding roads, in heavy traffic or when the road surface is slippery. This could result in loss of vehicle control, serious injury or death.

Cruise control disengages if the vehicle speed decreases more than
10 mph (16 km/h) below the set speed when driving uphill.
When you are going downhill while using cruise control, the battery charging system and engine work together to help maintain the set speed.Engine noise may increase or decrease under these conditions.
The cruise controls are on the steering wheel.
