The cure for the cruise control button being in a weird location (only someone with orangutan arms would be able to reach it comfortably) has been to leave it turned on. I'm sure many of us were doing just that all this time. Well, after about 4 months of not worrying about the cruise being left on, this morning I turned that cure off as I somehow found a way to set the speed control by accident and almost caused myself to have an accident. I was making a turn up a side road at about 30 miles an hour and following a string of traffic when the road turned uphill. Rather than brake to slow the truck down as traffic slowed in front of me, I let the hill slow me down. Much to my surprise, the truck kept right on going at 30 mph and almost right into the back of the car in front of me. Hope this serves as a cautionary tale for others employing the "cure".
