Screw that, I love cruise control and it drives me crazy when I'm on the highway behind some tool that can't hold a constant speed and is constantly speeding up and slowing down. Not only is that annoying but it also kills your mileage. Ill keep my CC

And howbout Ford's NEW 6.7L Diesel that requires that special fluid to clean the exhaust........it has a seperate dependin on the size of the truck, some are 5 gal & some are 20 gal (@$3 gal) and the computer reads it, and when you get within so many miles of it bein empty, it pops up a warning that the vehicle will be shut down. Had an over-the-counter customer the other day travelin from Mich. to Fla and his truck was gonna shut down in 5 miles when he found us, as we are 2 miles off I-75. HOW'S THAT GRAB YA????
lmao! wanna know whats really dumb? The truck warns you over and over and over and over when you start getting low on that fluid crap. He couldnt have missed it lol

even though my truck has cruise, I never use it, I like it because it comes with tilt steering, I honestly believe that if people didn't rely on cruise so much, they might naturally be able to regulate speed better.

I wish I would have had cruise yesterday. 500 miles of holding the pedal in one spot doing 80 sucked my nuts, and not in a good way.

I agree with the auto headlights. I know somebody who somehow flipped her headlights from auto to on, and needed someone to go shut them off for her because she didn't know how to turn them on and off.

I also have a problem with auto windshield wipers. It's not that hard to turn a damn knob.

I hate tcs so much that I bought an auto off module for my car. This way if I want it (which I never do) I can turn it on instead of having to turn it off every time I start the car.

Ford isn't the only ones to do that. Honda does it too. I don't know about other brands.

I hear you. Six hours of driving with no cruise control sucks.

I still listen to cds in my car. No ipod here. lol Either cds or radio.
I would be listening to my ipod, but some low life ******* stole my ipod at a party. Thanks to whoever you are. Hope you trip and fall in epic ways.
