Buick LaCrosse: Cruise Control - Driving and Operating - Buick LaCrosse Owners ManualBuick LaCrosse: Cruise Control

With cruise control, the vehicle can maintain a speed of about 40 km/h (25 mph) or more without keeping your foot on the accelerator. Cruise control does not work at speeds below 40 km/h (25 mph).

On vehicles with the Traction Control System (TCS) or the StabiliTrak® system, it may begin to limit wheel spin while you are using cruise control. If this happens, the cruise control will automatically disengage. See Traction Control System (TCS) or StabiliTrak® System.

WARNING!
Cruise control can be dangerous where you cannot drive safely at a steady speed. So, do not use the cruise control on winding roads or in heavy traffic.
Cruise control can be dangerous on slippery roads. On such roads, fast changes in tire traction can cause excessive wheel slip, and you could lose control. Do not use cruise control on slippery roads.
