⇒ Warning and indicator lights

The cruise control system (CCS) helps maintains an individually stored constant speed when driving above 12 mph 20 (km/h).

The CCS slows down the vehicle only by reducing the flow of fuel to the engine, not by braking ⇒ .

Using the cruise control when it is not possible to drive safely at a constant speed can be dangerous and can lead to an accident and serious personal injuries.
  • Never use cruise control when driving in heavy or varying traffic or when you cannot keep a safe distance between you and the vehicles ahead of you.
  • Never use cruise control on steep, winding, or slippery roads (such gravel roads, wet roads, or snowy or icy roads) or on roads with standing water.
  • Never use cruise control when driving off-road or on unpaved roads.
  • Always adjust your speed and the distance you keep between you and the vehicles ahead of you to the road, traffic, weather, and visibility conditions.
  • To help prevent unintended operation of cruise control, switch the system off when it is not being used.
  • It is dangerous to use the Resume feature when the previously set speed is too high for the existing road, traffic, or weather conditions.
  • When going downhill, the cruise control may not be able to maintain a constant speed. The vehicle will speed up because of its own weight. Downshift and/or use the foot brake to slow the vehicle.
