    I just bought a used 2005 Taco (4x4 Long Bed, Double Cab). From the get go I noticed that the cruise control is extremely slow to engage and react. I have owned several vehicles in my life and none of them have ever had this problem. Normally when you engage cruise it takes over immediately and you can take your foot off the pedal. In this truck if I hit the set button on the cruise control and take my foot off the gas the truck slows just as it is supposed to, and takes a good fives seconds to react and respond and rev the RPM's and downshift to speed it back up to the speed I selected. The same problem exist when climbing a hill, the vehicle will slow way down and it will take well over 5-10 seconds almost before it drops gears and gives it gas. Does anyone else experience this, I am sure this isn't normal for all of your Tacomas? Does anyone have any suggestions on what it might be or what I can try to fix it? The fuel pump and filter are fine. The vehicle is not under warranty anymore, so the I will do the work myself. Thanks for an help. Daron

    I assume there is no hesitation when you manually depress the gas -- it goes immediately, right?

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    I don't know about 5 seconds, but there is definitely a delay.

    Have you ever had a car with fly by wire before, The difference between a cable and the electronic throttle might be why it feels different. I use the cc control a lot, it is fine.

    No there isn't any hesitation when I press it. The CC is a very bad delay, I have to believe way worse than a new Tacoma would be, if at all.

    I say get used to it man. The CC in these trucks is garbage compared to other vehicles I've driven. One thing I've started doing is when I know there is a hill coming up that I know it will slow down and lag too much I'll step the gas just a little at the beginning of the hill to help it along at first.

    Well I am about to replace the spark plugs which I have a feeling have not been done in a loooong time, so we'll see if that does anything for the performance.

    Mine seems slow also and not nearly as responsive as my husbands Acura. I have to hold the stock up/down for atleast a second before it'll register. And yes....I get the same type of delay when it slowing down/etc. I find myself bliping the increase button a lot.

    Hmm....mine doesn't hesitate at all. I've found the Tacoma CC to be just as good as the CC in my BMW e46 that I drove before this.

    I too have de delay like any other tacoma. My guess is they added the delay for safety reasons (ex: someone use CC when it's raining, then start hydroplanning: the CC won't try to compensate for the speed variation right away, thus not getting you in the ditch)

    i feel the same. it's about as responsive as what i had in my mazdaspeed3 and what my wife has in her Si. i have no issues with it and truthfully i always use CC.

    OP, i'm curious to see what anyone else has to add regarding your particular issue.

    see, that's my whole point, compared to any other vehicle it's slow, because like many of you all said about your other makes, they work fine. I use my CC all the time, it's not the end of the world but it's just annoying, so if there was something to try to fix I would, but if not, then I guess I am SOL. Thanks.

    The CC is not great on my Taco.. 06DC4x4. It really reacts slow going up slight hills, then guns it to catch back up to the set speed (~70). :( I have gotten used to it and turn it off on grades...

    Mine delays as well, then overshoots when it's trying to come up to speed. Set at 65, it'll slow to 60 up a hill, then go all the way to 70 after the crest. I think that's just the way it is.....

    My cruise control works just fine and I use it all the time, even crossing the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I have a manual transmission, perhaps the lag has to do with the automatic transmissions.
