Mercedes Benz is one of the most renowned automotive names in the world. Over several decades, they have remained one of the most popular brands with drivers, and for excellent reason.
One of the benefits of Mercedes Benz is many of their models now come equipped with a cruise control system. With the proper maintenance and service, Mercedes are made to last and can feel like new even after thousands of miles and years of driving behind the wheel.
The regular upkeep and even use of cruise control only further assist in preventing performance issues from occurring. By utilizing our team at St. Matthews Imports, we will service your vehicle’s needs, and you will be confident that your Mercedes is operating as designed.
There are many benefits to using the Mercedes cruise control system. Let’s take a closer look at the different perks to this technology.
The cruise control in your Mercedes Benz only works at speeds above 20 mph. You can set the initial speed by using the lever on the left hand side of the steering will to either accelerate or decelerate. This lever has a resistance point halfway in either direction (up or down) by stopping at the resistance point you can increase or decrease your current speed.
If you move the lever past the resistance point in either direction, you can alter the speed by plus or minus 5 mph. The set speed can be cancelled by either stepping on the brake pedal or by pushing the lever forward. To resume to the last speed set, simply pull the lever toward you.
There are few reasons that can cause your cruise control to fail. There may be a damaged mechanical part, a blown fuse or faulty wiring, a damaged speed sensor, a faulty brake pedal switch, or potentially something different entirely. No matter the reason, St. Matthews Imports is here for you and your technologically-advanced vehicle.
