I’ve owned more cars than I care to admit. In every one of them, the cruise control, whether adaptive or not, has been intuitive and easy to figure out. However the Clarity’s cruise control leaves me scratching my head. In every car I’ve ever owned, you turn on the cruise system, press set, and the cruise maintains the speed at which you press set. Not the Clarity, at least not our Clarity. It seems to ignore your current speed and instead it initially goes to the speed it wants. Likewise, every other car I’ve owned will gradually accelerate as you press the appropriate button for that command. Release the button, and the car stops accelerating. Not the Clarity. Instead, in very small numbers on the dash (easily missed), it indicates the speed you’ll eventually come to as you call for more cruise speed. However it doesn’t take much of a button press to rapidly increases your ultimate cruising speed as indicated by those small numbers. If you don’t see those small numbers rapidly increasing, you get the feeling your driving a car suffering from ‘unintended acceleration’. Why? Because even after you’ve removed your hand from the cruise control, the car keeps accelerating until it reaches the speed shown by those small numbers. Again, I’ve never seen this kind of behavior before in any car I’ve owned. I only tried this today, since my wife came home yesterday saying, “I can’t figure out the cruise control”. I actually made fun of her...until this morning.
