well the robot has to "gun it" sometimes, when you're being economical, you aren't going to 'gun it'....just don't use the cruise (cheesy rhyme) these things are more trouble than their worth, unless you're driving out of bakersfield coming to san franscisco in which case okay use this...don't like having my decisions made for me....guess that takes some getting used to-
