Noticed a little flaw...
This is for the 5MT owners. Perhaps a CVT might do this too.
This morning I was driving along, and when I noticed the next substantial section of road will coast nicely without losing much or any speed, I bumped it into Neutral (release the clutch pedal) and coasted.
So I'm doing that, coasting. And just for giggles, I pressed the "Set" cruise toggle down. And sure enough the rpms come up to an rpm that would have worked for 5th. I've never had a car do this before. Most can't be tricked into activating the cruise function while coasting in Neutral. I hit cancel which worked, and thought I'd post it "up in here."
