I set it slighly above the speed limit in good conditions. Seems everybody still passes me & too often still zoom by in rain/snow conditions where I'll adjust down as much as it takes to still be safe.

Cannot set it because it is disabled as well as the horn due to the placement of the air bag in the steering wheel. Otherwise, I would set it at or one mile below the speed limit.

Because I know the state police are focusing curing their budget shortfalls. I set my speed on cruise at the posted speed limit and deny them of a legitiment reason to stop me. But unfortunently so many other local residents tend to fall victim to their own imposed driving distractions and fall prey to the state predators.

I love my cruise control and use it whenever I can -- sometimes as low as 35 mph (which is as low as it goes!) I'm sure without checking that it saves on gas, and I find my mood and "driver awareness" are much better for using it. Among other helpful things it does, I set it at, or slightly above the Speed Limit, which is extra beneficial in all respects! In my van, it sometimes makes for a jerky ride going up and down hills - so I have to give it up for awhile in those situations, but they don't happen often...

Use it all the time. Set it at whatever the sign says. I just wish it would engage below 53 km/h. Mine is now over 16 yrs old and "dithers" a bit on grades but I usually rest my foot on the accelerator at the bottom of a hill to make the transition a little smoother. It will be a must-have on my next vehicle. I rented a Mazda 3 when my van went AWOL a few years ago and was truly amazed at the performance of the speed control, smooth, precise and available well below 50 km/h!

When ever possible, I use C/C all the time. My 2010 RAM has MDS and crusing at a constant speed I get very good MPG's.
