Cruise Control

WARNING!
Cruise control can be dangerous where you cannot drive safely at a steady speed. So, do not use the cruise control on winding roads or in heavy traffic.
Cruise control can be dangerous on slippery roads. On such roads, fast changes in tire traction can cause excessive wheel slip, and you could lose control. Do not use cruise control on slippery roads.

With cruise control, a speed of about 40 km/h (25 mph) or more can be maintained without keeping your foot on the accelerator. Cruise control does not work at speeds below about 40 km/h (25 mph).

When the brakes are applied, the cruise control turns off.

If the vehicle has the Stabilitrak system and begins to limit wheel spin while you are using cruise control, the cruise control will automatically disengage. See StabiliTrak System.

When road conditions allow you to safely use it again, the cruise control can be turned back on.
