Did you know that Sweet Sounds in Mankato can add cruise control to almost any car, truck or SUV? Even manual transmissions? It’s true. Clients come to us for one of two reasons to add this feature: They bought a vehicle that didn’t come with cruise control and thought it wouldn’t be missed, and they were wrong, or they were looking at buying a new or used vehicle that didn’t have the feature, and it is a make-it-or-break-it item for them.
Benefits of Adding Cruise Control
If you have never used cruise control, it is a wonderful piece of technology. You get your vehicle up to the desired speed and engage cruise control, and the system takes over from there. If you start to go up an incline, the system works to keep the same speed. If you go down a hill, it backs off the throttle automatically. You can focus on what is going on around you, since you don’t have to monitor your speed closely.
Avoid Speeding Tickets
Most of us have been driving at one point or another, looked down at the speedometer, and realized we were going much faster than we thought – and that , even worse, we might get a ticket. If you had used cruise control, your speed would have been smooth and steady.
Improve Fuel Mileage
Another benefit of using cruise control is improved fuel mileage. Since the system is designed to keep your vehicle at a constant speed and makes smooth transitions with the accelerator, your fuel mileage is likely to increase.
How Do the Systems Work
First and foremost, all our systems are designed for the vehicles in which we install them. On older vehicles, our system will work the throttle just as if you were pushing down on the gas pedal. We monitor the vehicle speed sense wire, so the system knows how fast you are going. In newer vehicles that are known as drive by wire, our systems work with the factory computer to maintain your speed.
