It was set and going at the right speed for quite a while before it
There were some dips and sloping parts in the road. Basically at every
dip it gained some speed and then acted like that was the new speed in
memory and added gas to maintain that speed on the slight hills. Now
don't get me wrong..... we are talking very slight hills and valleys in
the road such that if you were not using cruise control it would only
require a slight pressure on the gas pedal to maintain speed during the
slight inclines and removal of pressure on the gas pedal during the
slight down slopes... no braking would have been required.
I've driven the car on highways with no cruise control problems. The
difference is that that was at speeds around 65 mph. Here I was trying
to get the car to maintain 45 mph.
Does your manual say anything about what speed ranges to NOT use cruise
There is DEFINITELY something wrong with your cruise control. Take it to
the dealer. When you click "set"... REGARDLESS of the conditions around
you, assuming you remove your foot from the gas once you click "set"...
the car should MAINTAIN the MPH that you were doing when you pressed
"set". PERIOD. It may vary by 2-3 mph when you top out a long incline.
Ignore all this rhetoric about reading your manual and not using cruise in
certain conditions... none of that makes any difference in how the cruise
is supposed to operate.
Maybe. I had a Taurus whose cruise control got really wacky when used in the
40 mph range. Utterly useless. But, you're right. It's always best to not
look at the manual.
