Cruise Control

Anyone else having issues with the cruise control? Mine is always kicking off on the highway. At first I thought it was just sensitivity to bumps but now it kicks off all the time. I'll hit resume, then it's on, then it's off. Drives me nuts and is so bad I can't really use it as it's almost a hazard causing car to slow down at inoportune times. Maybe the AC has something to do with the increased frequency as engine is under more load than in the Spring when I got the car. I'll mention it to dealer when I bring car in for first 6 month service in a couple months but I'm wondering if it's a design issue or if something wrong with my car.

I've only used the cruise control a few times (only on very long trips) but it seems that it'll hold at lower speeds but above 80 it was wanting to let the car slow down under the speed I set it at (like I set it at 85 and the car dropped to 80 and stayed there) but I didn't have it completely shut off on me at all, and my a/c hasn't been shut off much since I got the car.

That is really odd. There should be no reason for that.. kinda dangerous if you think about it ?

I'm taking it in for service on Friday. Cruise won't stay on at all now.

Yeah, I don't really use it, mine's the 6 speed so cruise control is kinda pointless anyways... if it were automatic though that'd be a different story, I find that automatics just accelerate on their own when you try to maintain speed.

After 4 service trips, a week and a half with a loaner car, replacement of steering wheel cruise control switch, brake pedal switch, and ECM, cruise control is still not working. Now dealer going to set up visit with Toyota engineer and put me in another loaner. Service advisor mentioned might end up giving me a new replacement car. Bizarre that this is so difficult to fix.
