The cruise control allows driving at a speed between 25 to 89 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 on the vehicle information display will illuminate.

To set cruising speed, accelerate the vehicle to the desired speed, push the COAST/SET switch and release it. (The SET indicator light on the vehicle information display will illuminate.) 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, use one of the following methods:
- Push the CANCEL switch. The SET indicator on the vehicle information display will turn off.

- Tap the brake pedal. The SET indicator on the vehicle information display will turn off.

- Turn the MAIN switch off. Both the CRUISE and SET indicator on the vehicle information display will turn off.

— If you depress the brake pedal while pushing the ACCEL/RES or COAST/ SET 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 (12 km/h) below the set speed.

— If you move the selector lever to the N (Neutral) position, the cruise control will be canceled.

To reset at a slower cruising speed, use one of the following methods:
- Lightly tap the brake pedal. When the vehicle attains the desired speed, push the COAST/SET switch and release it.

- Push and hold the COAST/SET switch.
