UNDER A SPECIFIC SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES, THE CRUISE CONTROL CAUSES THE CAR TO SURGE PAST THE SET CRUISE SPEED. I'VE NEVER LET THE SURGE GET PAST 10 MPH ABOVE THE SET CRUISE SPEED, I ALWAYS TURN OFF THE CRUISE WHICH CANCELS THE SURGE. I CANNOT FORCE THE REPLICATION OF THE PROBLEM BUT IT HAS HAPPENED A NUMBER OF TIMES OVER THE LIFE OF THE CAR. THE CIRCUMSTANCES I CAN IDENTIFY ARE THE CRUISE IS SET ON A SPECIFIC SPEED (LIKE 60 MPH), THE CRUISE IS DISENGAGED TO SLOW DOWN (WELL BELOW 60 MPH), USING THE GAS PEDAL TO SPEED UP ON A LONG UPHILL GRADE, ENGAGE THE CRUISE TO TAKE THE CAR BACK TO THE SET SPEED (60 MPH) AND THE CRUISE BLOWS PAST 60 MPH. IN THE SECONDS IT TAKES TO DISENGAGE THE CRUISE CONTROL, I'VE REACHED 70 MPH.
