Does adjusting the C.C. switches help with the following:

My CC seems to hold speed okay. but when driving and setting the CC speed, it wants to lose at least 5mph when I take my right foot off before it kicks on and gets me back up to where I set it at. Meanwhile traffic closes fast from behind.

(I have a 5-spd)

^^^Yes mine used to do that prior to the adjustment. Now it engages right away and stays where you set it. I still have a problem occasionally when you have to hit the set button a second time cause it didn't register the first time.

Man, I should have found this months ago. I've been vexed with crappy cruise performance since the day I drove it off the lot... slows down 5mph as soon as you set it and may or may not speed up and bogging way down going up a hill then WOT over the top ending up 5 - 10mph over what you set it at. Now do I want to brave the 17 degree weather here or wait a few days?

Be brave and try the

On On 3 Most sensitive

position and let us know how it goes. I have mine in the 2 (next most sensitive) and it works tons better that it was after install, but I have been tempted to try the "3" and see how that does. Mine does get a little behind on hills compared to other cruises I have used.

Does anyone know if this will work on the tC too? And could you post a pic of the box that you have to pop open, so I could share this with everyone?

Thanks

It might as long as it's a Rostra unit. Worst case you just set it back to normal.

I know this thread is old but I just came across it. I performed the fix last night and it works like a factory one now. Huge kudos for this solution!

I just bought my xb last week and that was the first thing i noticed was how slow the cc was to react, I would hit it at 65 and wouldnt kick in until like 55, thought I bought a dud but good to know every xb is like this lol

My RS 3.0 didn't come with cruise control, and I miss that. Does anyone know of any aftermarket CC kits?

xBs new could get dealer installed cruise control made by Rostra. I think the units are still available. Might want to check at the dealer or maybe on ebay.
