The cruise control system allows you to drive at a constant speed, without having to keep your foot on the gas pedal. When the system is set to a speed, the car will maintain that speed automatically. Setting the cruise control is easy, and only takes a few steps: 1. Press the On-Off button on the steering wheel. The Cruise indicator light will illuminate on the instrument panel. 2. Accelerate your vehicle to the desired speed. 3. Press the Set button on the steering wheel to set the speed. The Set indicator light will illuminate on the instrument panel. 4. Take your foot off the gas pedal.
