Driving in reverse?

Is it possible to drive in reverse and have the cruise control on? :hide:

Don't ask me why, I just thought of it!

Iin most cars cruise control only enages above certain speeds. I'm not sure about our own cars but it must be the same. Perhaps someone with his/her manual handy can look this up.

^^^

yea, I don't recall seeing a minimal speed in the manual. Though I'm not so sure this is a safety feature as such. An auto will easily get up to 10 mph eventually if you just leave it is D on flat ground.

Driving in reverse requires lots of care.
Ones needs to get out of car and see what he is backing up to, especially when car has been idle for some hours. Something could have sneaked up behind you.... :shock:

Re: Driving in reverse?
