The cruise control allows driving at a speed between 25 to 90 MPH (40 to 144 km/h) without keeping your foot on the accelerator pedal. To turn on the cruise control, push the MAIN switch on. The CRUISE indicator will come on. To set cruising speed, accelerate your vehicle to the desired speed, push the SET/COAST switch and release it. Take your foot off the accelerator pedal. Your vehicle will maintain the set speed.
► To pass another vehicle, depress the accelerator pedal. When you release the pedal, the vehicle will return to the previously set speed.
► The vehicle may not maintain the set speed on winding or hilly roads. If this happens, drive without the cruise control.

To cancel the preset speed, follow any of these methods:

1. Push the CANCEL switch. 2. Tap the brake pedal. 3. Move the selector lever to the N (Neutral) position. 4. Turn the MAIN switch off. The CRUISE indicator light will turn off.
► If you depress the brake pedal while pushing the RESUME/ACCELERATE or SET/COAST switch and reset at the cruising speed, the cruise control will disengage. Turn the MAIN switch off once and then turn it on again.
► The cruise control will automatically cancel if the vehicle slows more than 8 MPH (13 km/h) below the set speed.
► If you move the selector lever to N (Neutral) position, the cruise control will be canceled. To reset at a faster cruising speed, use one of the following methods:

► Lightly tap the brake pedal. When the vehicle attains the desired speed, push the SET/COAST switch and release it.
► Push and hold the SET/COAST switch. Release the switch when the vehicle slows down to the desired speed.
