Re: CRUISE CONTROL IN THE WET


Well i can say for my Exy this is BS. I was using cruise in extremely wet conditions on the Freeway, and every time i began to hydroplane/aquaplane my cruise disengaged........ it was pretty bloody annoying actually.

The scariest thing about this statement are the words every time

Are your tyres okay?

Re: CRUISE CONTROL IN THE WET


Not really scary, as stated annoying. Yeah well every time my cruise disengaged, i re-set it.... and my tyres were the factory Toyo Tranpath (crappyies of crap).... with only 20,000kms so i guess they were ok treadwise. it was the South Eastern Fwy in melbourne on a very rainy evening, which on the stretch from city to springvale rd is a poor excuse for a fwy in my opinion and needs a re-surface.

Tyres have since been replaced with 16" Bridgestones which im yet to experience in the same conditions.

Re: CRUISE CONTROL IN THE WET


I use the cruise control virtually all the time, wet and dry. When it is wet my wife & I normally turn on the auto four-wheel drive switch.(Most of our driving is on the highway).

I have found on numerous occasions that on a wet road, particularly after driving through puddles my cruise control switches off as others have found.

My theory is that when the back wheels start driving due to wheel slip in the front (auto 4 wheel drive), the cruise turns off as a safety feature.

I may be way off track and it may well happen in just normal two-wheel drive. But as others also have experienced it I believe even more that it is by design and not by accident or fault.

I would love to hear any other theory or explanation.
