    I absolutely love mine. It's being used the entire time I'm on the highway, as well as many road with 45-55mph speed limits. It's much more consistent than my foot, and paired with a manual transmission there are no issues with down shifting and butt boosting.

    I would probably like cruise control if my truck had it.

    I love it, but at the same time sometimes I feel like I get complacent when using it.

    I use it when I travel a lot and wouldnt buy a car without it. On the Taco, I noticed I have to watch out when cresting a big hill on the highway because it will gain about 5 mph.

    i do a lot of highway driving so i love it. must admit it does suck when your loaded up, going up hills. drops down to 3rd from 5th sometimes. revs high because the truck just doesnt have the balls.

    I put 40K miles on my truck the first year I had it. If I didn't use my cruise control I'd have a ton of speeding tickets and a very tired right leg.

    Love my 6-speed + cruise control.

    Once a year I drive from SoCal to Canton, OH and back. That drive would be unpleasant without cruise control. It also comes in handy on the local highways but I never use it on the mountain roads.

    I love the 6-speed on hills because I never have to ride or even tap the brakes.

    Since that I do a lot of city driving I don't get to use it that often. When I leave the city, I love it for the long highway trips.
