Cruise controlCruise control  - Starting and driving - Mitsubishi ASX Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi ASX

Cruise control is an automatic speed control system that keeps a set speed. It can be activated at about 40 km/h (25 mph) or more.

• When you do not wish to drive at a set speed, turn off the cruise control CAUTION

• When you do not wish to drive at a set speed, turn off the cruise control for safety.

• Do not use cruise control when driving conditions will not allow you to stay at the same speed, such as in heavy traffic or on roads that are winding, icy, snowcovered, wet, slippery, on a steep downhill slope.

• On vehicles with M/T, do not move the gearshift lever to the “N” (Neutral) position while driving at a set speed without depressing the clutch pedal. The engine will run too fast and might be damaged.

• Cruise control may not be able to keep your speed on uphills or downhills. NOTE

• Cruise control may not be able to keep your speed on uphills or downhills.

• Your speed may decrease on a steep uphill.

You may use the accelerator pedal if you want to stay at your set speed.

• Your speed may increase to more than the set speed on a steep downhill. You must use the brake to control your speed. As a result, the set speed driving is deactivated.
