On a long trip, I had cruise control on for approximately 70 miles. As I exit highway, I realize I'm not slowing quickly enough. More brakes and it's just not slowing, I made a turn too fast and my three passengers all noticed. I'm down as hard as I can on the brake pedal and it's not slowing fast enough. I shifted to neutral and cut the motor, so the power brakes went, but I also restarted the engine so the brakes were back and I stopped about 2 feet from the rear bumper of a stopped car. No more cruise control for me! Ford could recreate the problem, but needed money anyway. Thank goodness due to a lack of recall parts (separate issue), Ford just disconnected my cruise control and now I don't have to worry about that issue, just the fire under the hood from the recall.
