Brenda, Do you drive with the "econ" mode activated? There is a button to the left of the steering wheel that turns it on and off. A green tree-like icon lights up in the dash when it is activated. The reason I ask is because the cruise control and the air conditioning are both affected by the econ mode. If the econ mode is active, the cruise control slows down a lot more up hills and speeds up a lot more down hills in order to reduce fuel consumption. Similarly, the car dials back the air conditioning when the mode is activated to maximize fuel economy. I am curious because I just bought this car and where I am it hasn't been warm yet so I'd like to know if pressing the econ button would help.Report it
Did you get a chance to resolve this issue? I was going to buy the CRV but now, after reading about problems that people experience, am reluctant. I just can't imagine a cop giving me any credit for Honda crappy software in cruise control when the car speeds up by 8 mph going down a hill. That's beyond the 5 mph over the limit that usually keeps you safe from cops. In many areas they'll pull you over at 72 mph in 65 mph zone.Report it
