The speed regulator reacts in a way surprising, once fixed on speed chosen, it controls without problem on the desired speed, but as soon as the road goes up, the regulation is much less ideal since it lets speed then lower significantly then accel?re for sometimes exceeding desired speed. Accustomed to the regulators, I am surprised by this behavior. Did you live of the similar experiments?

no can't say I had much problems with the cruise control worked in the same way as the rest of my cars although you can get the sensation of it speeding up to maintain your desired speed.

I've had similar, but only when I've been braking and then hit the Res+ button, accelerates past what you've set and then slows down hard.

I've concluded on the CC for the Treg that the less you tinker with it whilst set, the better it performs :think:

I've had the same experience. Especially on gradual slopes along the French motorways. It does tend to stay in 6th and lose pace and then switch down to 5th gear and rev up to catch up :angry2: . A bit annoying really since I don't really mind losing a bit of speed, especially when the top of the incline is in sight. However that's the way it's been set up .... so be it.

I've also had the same experience when resuming speed after a British roundabout. It gets very sluggish and revs up to get you to the set speed as quick as it can. That's a bit too much for me so what I do is just gradually drive to the desired speed (as set before approaching the roundabout) and let the cruise control do the last bit. This is much less stressful for the car and its passengers.

Other than that I am pretty happy with the system
. Much better user friendly then the one I had on the previous Audi(s).

Rob

It is true that it is not a model of ergonomics
