Kona cruise control issues

Iím a new Hyundai owner and wanted to see if the way the cruise control works on my new 2019 Kona is normal. I will set the cruise control speed to 50mph and then press the button to increase the speed. In my previous cars when I released the increase button the speed would stay at the current speed the car was traveling at. In my Kona when I release the increase speed button the speed continues to increase. By the same token, when I use the decrease button it does the same thing. The speed will continue to decrease after Iíve taken my finger off of the button. Is this normal to Hyundais? It seems to be unsafe for the speed to continue to increase without being controlled by the driver.

Thanks for any response.

In our Kona Limited, each push of the cruise control + or - equates to roughly 1 mph increase (+) or 1 mph decrease (-).

I set ours at 70 mph which is the speed limit around here on the freeways, and then adjust up or down to match traffic speeds. If you press and hold the + or -, it will rapidly increase or decrease the set speed.

If you hold the cruise + or -, it will jump to 5 mph increments until you release. So what speed did you set it to? When we first got the Tucson, I hit the + and looked down and I had set it to 99....lol

Takes a little getting used to.

As mentioned, if you are holding the button down to increase or decrease speed, that is your problem. Just try tapping the + or - button once for each 1 mph increment you wish to change.

I press the + button until I reach the speed I want then release the button. In all of my previous cars with cruise control once I took my finger off the button the car would cruise at that speed. In the Kona when I push the + button to the speed I want to go and release the button the speed continues to increase until I either turn cruise control off or press the break pedal. In other words, the cruise control increases the speed without me holding the + button in the up position.

If I want to go from 50mph to 60mph I have to continually press the + button up 60 times? In all of my previous cars if I wanted to increase the speed from 50mph to 60mph I would press the +button until the car reached 60mph and then take my finger off the + button and then the car would cruise at 60mph. Not continue to increase.

10 times, not 60. 1 press for each MPH

Most cars work this way, Hyundai apparently decided to do something different with the Kona. Unless the owners manual says it should work different (in that case, talk to your local dealer's service department to get it fixed) you Might just have to do it the old fashioned way, with your foot.

Our 2014 Elantra GT, 2015 Sonata Sport, and 2016 Elantra SE all operate the exact same way; one bump of the +/- will increase/decrease the speed 1MPH. If you hold the button down, it will act like keyboard repeat. Tap the key, you get one character. Hold the key down and you get a string of characters.

Interesting, so sometime during the last decade Hyundai (and I imagine, KIA) changed, for whatever reason, how that works all across the lineup.

That's actually a really good explanation of what's going on.

But when you release the key the string of characters should stop. Imagine holding the key down to get a prescribed number of characters then releasing the key and watching the string of characters continue to grow. To stop the string of characters from repeating you have to turn the device off.
