Cruise Control is often referred to as autocruise, speed control or just tempomat. While the term referring to the feature may vary, it is the same technology around the world. The cruise control system works by controlling the speed of the vehicle / car, by using a servomechanism technology which takes control of the throttle of a car to maintain a steady speed which is pre-set by the driver. While cruise control can make driving easier especially on long highway routes, the system is not necessarily fool proof and so needs to be examined by an expert after every several thousand kilometres.
In most modern cars if there is a problem with the cruise control the onboard ECU or computer will alert you to it. That means you will not be able to turn the vehicle’s cruise control system on. In older cars the system may turn on but may not be able to regulate the speed of a vehicle. If you notice any of these problems, it’s important that you take the car to a certified mechanic since a failing cruise control system can be dangerous.
