WHILE IN 'CRUISE CONTROL' WITH NO USE OF THE GAS PEDAL, THE CAR STARTED TO INCREASE SPEED BEYOND THE SET SPEED. WHEN I REALIZED WHAT WAS HAPPENING, I STEPPED ON THE BRAKE WHICH OVERRODE SPEED CONTROL AND BEGAN SLOWING DOWN AS IT NORMALLY WOULD IF THE CAR WAS NOT ACCELERATING BUT AT STEADY SPEED, NOTE: DATE BELOW IS APPROXIMATE. EVENT HAPPENED TWICE DURING SUMMER OF 2009 AT HIGH SPEED (SETTING AT 70MPH).

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
