Press the Cruise Button on your steering wheel,<p>When you get to the desired speed, then just press to + button.<p>and sit back and relax (Not to much) LOL

Ensure that it is in tip-top mechanical shape<br>4. Have MANY alternative plans, incl. routes and/or for mechanical emrgencies<br>5. Plan the entire route CAREFULLY.<p>Yannis

the cruise control and brights were the only two complications my car comfronted me. I would always want to find out how to use cruise control but then would forget about it by the time i was parked and had access to the manual. It was the same thing with the brights. It was only on my mind when I was driving and couldnt read the manual.

Re: how to use cruise control (Heimpel)

Most cars built in the past 10-15 years DO, you just haven't driven many cars or didn't notice, that's the way you adjust your speed and it's VERY simple and logical<br>(for once)<br><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Heimpel</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><p>I wouldn't say it is the simplest cruise control ive seen.

That's so true. I have not touched my cruise control in three years.
