This electronic aid keeps the car moving at a constant speed, reducing stress on the driver particularly where speed limits must be observed, when towing a trailer, and on long trips. The system stores and maintains the speed selected by the driver. The set speed can also be manually increased or decreased. The cruise control can be deactivated with the “Off” switch or by pressing the brake or clutch pedal. (If desired, the car will resume the last speed set.)
For safety reasons, the cruise control should not be used in heavy traffic or under unfavorable road conditions (wet or icy roads, fog, ect.).
