I use the cruise control in almost all cases. It helps me keep my speed pretty constant and not just speed up with the flow of traffic.

I do manually downshift when coming up on a hill and sometimes I take it off on downhill grades as the engine brake will not engage in my coach with the cruise control engaged.

Use it in every vehicle. Keeps me from getting speeding tickets. And Iím annoyed by people in cars who donít and canít maintain a consistent speed.

In my opinion the three greatest automotive inventions, The windshield, cruise control and heated seats.

I use it on the highway most all the time. It keeps my speed constant and also helps to avoid driver fatigue. Great invention!

I use mine all the time except in the mountains and when the weather is bad. It cuts down on driver fatigue and it doesn't allow your speed to creep up which happens on long drives.

Always use in mountains,. Let the exhaust brake and transmission do there jobs. Set cruise about 5 under the speed you want on down hill and let them do there job.
