I noticed the same thing, when you hit accelerate it goes all out! I've only tried the CC once but if you're cruising along and just want to maintain that speed is there away to do that without hitting the accel button?jeffiam said:when using the cruise control accelerator button on the steering wheel, i notice the acceleration is not gradual but is quite abrupt. the engine revs up
to about 3000 rpm to accelerate. is this typical for yall's rl?
Probably because the Accord's engine is better suited to handle the weight of the car. The Accord weighs at least 1000lbs less than the RL although engine power is not that different (at least based on the rated HP). We own both vehicles. The Accord's engine takes everything in stride. The RL's engine has to work a little harder to get similar results. Of course. try to haul a sheet of wallboard in an Accord (or almost anything else, for that matter).jeffiam said:exactly steve. our accord adjusts smoothly to inclines, declines, reclines, whatever.....smooth cruise acceleration via steering wheel button............kinda dissapointed. i would expect more out of the ridge.
Good idea! I need to check mine too.gormleyflyer2002 said:I agree with "denvrfan" ......power to weight ratio is just not the same. My Ody had the same condition as my Ridge.
Did a speedo check against GPS today. First Honda vehicle that I have ever owned that was this accurate.....any vehicle actualy.
Cruise set @ 120 kph.......GPS reading 121 kph Pretty much dead nuts perahps faster than reading .......... for those that sit just below speed limit.
