As I said, the problem is intermittent. They test drove it and it worked fine, as it does for me, most of the time.
What doesn't seem to be common is getting the problem fixed. So far I think I've heard of 3 GM buy backs. Not encouraging.This seems more common than should be expected. Can someone more tech savvy than me make a poll on this? I wonder how many members have had this problem?
My year old 2017 has an issue with cruise, but not exactly what you have............Could anyone with a 2017 Volt LT run a simple test for me? My car has been in the shop non-stop thanks to a braking issue. The car was returned to me today, only to be taken back immediately. When I first put on the cruise control at 65 mph it worked, i tapped the brake for incoming traffic, and when I hit set again it wouldn't turn back on. I waited until no one was behind me and hit the brake harder than usual, then hit set and suddenly it worked again. I repeated all these steps 3 times on the way back to the dealership, all results the same.
Does anyone else's Volt do this? Oh, when its in the "won't set the cruise control mode" it takes more gas to get it moving and it slows down faster anytime I let off the gas. All driving was done in D. Thanks in advance.
Yes minus does the same thing, though once it starts, it's easy to overshoot where you wanted to land. I like the preciseness of the cruise. I can click up 5 times and know that it will increase 5 mph (usually). Gen 1st have a bug that sometimes it jumps from 69 to 71 to 69 until I hit cancel, set then I can go from 69 to 70. This problem stems from the fact that it sets your starting speed in KM then converts. So there are times it rounds up and down...at least that's what we suspect.Today I learned, if I hold down the +RES button I can increase in 5 mph increments. I assume this also holds for the "-" button as well? Gonna try this tomorrow. Thank you for mentioning this, Random! I glossed over that "hold to accelerate" portion. They should've just stuck a "+5 mph" instead of more words. Too many words. *GRUNTS*
Anyone mind pointing out what I'm missing or doing wrong?+RES : If there is a set speed in
memory, press briefly to resume that
speed or press and hold to
accelerate. If cruise control is
already active, use to increase
−SET : Press briefly to set the
speed and activate cruise control.
If cruise control is already active,
use to decrease vehicle speed.
Why go to all this trouble? I only use single presses on either + or -. If I want to go more than +/- 5, I press the cancel button, then hit set when I'm going the new speed I want.Anyone mind pointing out what I'm missing or doing wrong?
No offense to others, but I was hoping everyone counted the 5 seconds wrong and it was really more like 2 or 3 seconds. If it was, I'd see myself using it to accelerate. I have a twitchy leg and have been described as a "digital accelerator" by a coworker. I find I can accelerate more smoothly if cruise control, say when I was cruising at 50mph but eventually hit a stop light and rather than accelerating less smoothly, if I accelerate to 24 then hit "+RES", my Volt accelerates quite smoothly up to 50mph.Why go to all this trouble?

I'm too impatient to hold a button down for 5 seconds or more. Plus it hurts my finger.
