    Correct - it says this in the Owner's Handbook. It's a safety feature - all factory fitted cruise control systems have to have a secondary 'arming' action. On some cars it's pressing the brake pedal once the engine has been started, on some it's a separate switch to enable cruise control, and no doubt there are other things around.

    yep its to ensure that the brake circuit works ...

    as you have multiple methods for canceling Cruise

    press the cancel/pause button on the stalk

    press the brake pedal

    press the clutch pedal (if you have a manual)


    most manufacturers have this "feature" fitted to ensure that the circuits working correctly prior to allowing the cruise to operate/function

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven
