    Cruise will also disengage if stability control is activated. EG. if you steer quickly around some wildlife moving across your path.

    I'm assuming you found this out due to a real world experience!

    You'd have to shift really fast to avoid engine run away and you'll just grind against a redlining engine, I don't think 5->4 would be possible (tried once when I had a 5spd Accord), but I don't have cruise control yet

    No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public. -- That's why Ford outsells Mitsu in the US

    I looked through the video and the comments. I can definitely say that my 2015 EU spec Mirage does NOT have Idle neutral logic. It always creeps forward when in "D" and the engine is running. It has Hill assist though. It never creeps backwards, no matter how steep the hill.
    I have to correct this, my Mirage has idle logic, but only when the air conditioning is switched off. As I have automatic climate control, I have it always switched on. So yeah. Sorry about the misinformation.

    You are correct, idle control logic will only engage in a limited set of circumstances (no ac engaged, front defroster setting off, no rear window defroster turned on, flat ground). You could turn the setting from "auto" to a set temperature and not turn on the AC or defroster. This is why I put my CVT into neutral at every stop because if idle control logic is not engaged then you are sitting there with the belt slipping which of course increases wear.

    You don't have to worry about the belt slipping. If that slips, it makes a terrible noise and your CVT will be out of order very soon!. The energy difference between the running engine and the standing wheels will be absorbed by the fluid coupling and converted to heat. In the owner's manual it is recommended to switch to neutral only when you have to stop for an extended period. However, some car technicians told me that is nonsense and I can keep it in drive eternally as there is so little power output that is converted into heat in the torque converter, that the oil will not overheat. Anyway the take away message is, you belt never slips unless your CVT is broken and makes a lot of terrible noise.

    That may be but all I know is that the only way to make sure the CVT is in neutral at a stop is to place it into neutral. I also start in "B" from every stop because it upshifts way to early for my liking so I'll throttle up to about 3000 rpm in "B" and then upshift into "D". Acceleration is better without mashing the throttle.
