Finally on my first road trip enjoying my passport all to myself…

Something interesting driving through the mountains, traffic is fairly clear and I have cruise control on set at 65 and it will at random automatically drop down to around 55 and then back up to 60 and then eventually 65 again.

Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Nada here, maybe hilly terrain messes with cruise but I would think it would lose a couple of miles climbing but not 10 and go right back - it’s pretty flat here in MN so probably not a good sampling 🤔

Definitely no terrain, it is the drive between Southern California to Las Vegas so fairly flat but a few little hills of incline?

No issue on my two recent round trips to KC and Pittsburgh. It will slow down if it detects you are leaving your lane without signaling or if there is a vehicle in front of you, though.

If you are using adaptive cruise try bumping down the sensitivity. I noticed if it's set high it seems to start slowing you down way in advance of being close to car in front of you or try running in regular old cruise mode and see if reacts the same way.

Can you please tell me more about this adaptive cruise? I’m wondering if that’s what’s going on.

Because the other thing is if I adjust the speed by one push of the button it’ll change the speed 3-5 mph up or down.

The speed adjust by increments of 3-5 mph is also odd. Should be 1mph increments as far as I can tell, unless perhaps you're holding it long enough to do multiple increments.

"Give Me a Man Who Reads" (his owner's manual).
Hey VISA… I’m getting the impression that you’re kindof a douche bag. You seem to be the only negative Nancy in this forum you’re probably not even real just a robot behind a keyboard, Or a troll looking for a friend!

If you are real, I’ve had my Passport for five days and it’s been being worked on for three of those days. I’ve glanced through the owners manual, but I have not yet memorized it, nor have I gone over 110 miles!

Thanks Ken. Yeah that’s the norm of what I’ve been doing is pressing the button up or down once and it will adjust between 3 to 5 miles an hour each time. Not sure if it’s a bug in the computer or the car needs some type of update? I just went from a 13-year-old CRV to this so it’s a big change as well.

I do use adaptive cruise quite a bit and it does work pretty well here in the city except during rush hour as expected so I don’t use it then / car length is set at 2 bars and as long as cars don’t cut in the space I’m good 🤣 or it would take me forever to get anywhere as the PP slows down and another car hops in the space again and repeat 😂 / all the driving you have hope ur cruise works as it’s awesome sauce 😂, there is a way to turn off the ‘adaptive’ part but not sure how and maybe mentioned above / sorry, this is long and you need to see quick responses on the road...

When you press the button quickly it will go 1mph but if you hold for a full second or so it will got up 5mph. I got used to this on our CRV and the Passport works the same. I;ve noticed if you keep holding it down it will jump in increments of 5 so watch it. Play with it some and you'll eventually get the touch on how it works. What I do notice with the adaptive cruise control is that the PP starts to slow down sooner than the CRV and that could be how it's tuned and based on speed as the system will take speed into consideration. I keep the distance set to 1 car length on both our cars and the PP lays back further than the CRV does. I've had people cut in front of me and the car will quickly start to brake. I love the system but it takes some time to get used to.

I like the ACC. SWMBO, not so much. I always set the sensitivity to the closest.

That might be the issue. I’ll pay more attention on the way to Ventura Monday. But it seemed like a light tap of the button. My CRV was awesome at 13 years old, but needed a little more of a push with everything.

I was trying to do what my Honda shop recommended for the first 1,000 miles and not ride the motor for 4-5 hours at 70, and do 30 min or so at 55-75mph. Luckily there was no traffic so I only pissed off a few people for doing the actual speed limit.

Same response I had to Ken...

I had the same problem when I took my first road trip. I also reduced the sensitivity to two bars and it helped quite a bit. It can be sensitive to rolling terrain and low bridges, as I discovered on my own and later read in the manual.

Thanks. I’ll have to check for that too. I’ve been visiting my little nephews so no time to check into the book or screen shots posted a Ives

Hello again, i did a lot of driving today I set my cruise to 1 bar of sensitivity and it seems to work even better and I am not riding others bumper too closely at all which was a concern I had before/I’m leaving it at 1 😎
