WARNING:
o Keep the cruise control main switch off when not using the cruise control to avoid inadvertently setting a speed.

o Use the cruise control system only when traveling on open highways in good weather.

o Do not use the cruise control when it may not be safe to keep the car at a constant speed, for instance, driving in heavy or varying traffic, or on slippery (rainy, icy or snow-covered) or winding roads or over 6% up-hill or down-hill roads.

o Pay particular attention to the driving conditions whenever using the cruise control system.

o During cruise-control driving with a manual transaxle vehicle, do not shift into neutral without depressing the clutch pedal, or the engine will be overrevved. If this happens, depress the clutch pedal or release the main switch.

o With the cruise control engaged, when the brake pedal is applied, it is normal to hear the cruise control system deactivate.

This is an indication of normal system operation.

o During normal cruise control operation, when the "SET(COAST)" is activated or reactivated after applying the brakes, the cruise control will energize after approximately 3 seconds. This delay is normal.
