Default 2008 Vue Cruise Control

I have an 08 XR FWD. Took it to PA from Atlanta. Loved the ride and quietness, but the cruise lost speed on every hill then downshifted twice to race the engine to catch the speed back up. It didn't hunt gears, but did loose speed on almost everyhill. I would have thought with 257 hp that it would have held better. BTW it rained a lot and the Rain Sensing wipers were awesome. I like my Nav also, but it locks out a lot of features while moving, yuk.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: 2008 Vue Cruise Control

That seems to be normal. We just bought a 2008 AWD and took it up in the Big Horn Mountains. With the new 6 speed auto it has a whole lot more gears to choose from to keep the engine in it's sweet spot, which seems to be in the upper rpm range. In hilly areas I just keep it in manual to hold each gear longer.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
