Why Would I Use the Cruise Control in the 2018 Honda Pilot?

Most of the time drivers use Cruise Control when driving long distances on highways or interstates. Generally, Cruise Control is used when speeds are higher and less traffic is present. The main purpose of Cruise Control is to allow for a steady driving speed to maximize fuel economy while also allowing the driver to move their foot to prevent ankle cramping.
