Great Car but strange Cruise Control

Overall, this has been a good car. Biggest surprise (and disappointment) was that Cruise Control does not slow car down when set. It only controls speed going uphill and on flat roads. It should not be called Cruise Control, but "Up Hill Flat Road" control. Car accelerates going downhill, increase of speed contingent on slope. I took it to Dealer and they said that's the way Cruise Control works on this car. This makes Cruise Control on long trips worthless. I've previously driven German cars and never had this issue.
Body style, intelligently designed cockpit.
Cruise Control is worthless, as it doesn't slow car down when going down a gently sloping road. It only controls speed on up-hill & flat roads.
