Cruise control is an important system that offers both convenience and the ability to fight fatigue. Setting the speed and then relaxing your foot allows you to be both more comfortable and less tired on long trips. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Push the cruise button on the steering wheel. This turns the system on

  2. Check that the Cruise Main light is on in the dash

  3. Once you reach the speed you want, press the set button

  4. The Cruise Control light will now come on in the dash

Tips

  • To cancel cruise control, hit the cancel button or press the brake pedal.

  • To speed up, press the accelerate button (a firm press results in a significant boost, while a tap increases your speed incrementally).

  • Don’t use cruise control unless the conditions are right – you should be on a long, relatively flat road where you can maintain a set speed for a long period.
