How do I set the cruise control?

When the cruise control is turned on, it’s easy to set the speed. Simply accelerate to the desired speed, then press the Coast/Set button. A Set indicator light will illuminate on the instrument panel to confirm this action. Tips If you need to pass a car, you can use the throttle to accelerate. When you release the gas pedal, the car will return to the cruise control speed.
