I live in an area that has a few hills, and on the highway when I'm on a climb even though the hill isn't all that steep but may have a long slop.My control cruse control throws me into a very low causing my rpms to jump into the 5k+ rpms. It's so dramatic that it feels like I'm drag racing someone up the hill.
All of my other vehicles will of course downshift sometimes but never near as drastic as the cruse control is doing on my Taco. I often find myself laughing thinking to myself while I'm driving it up the same hills without the cruse engaged and it barely ever needs to even downshift to keep the speed going up the hill.
Anyways, I was wondering if this is just a common charactoristic of the cruse control for the Tacoma or that I might have a faulty one?
