Using Hyundai's Adaptive Cruise Control

I've now "tested" this feature (and possibly scored a speeding ticket) and can say that it works, but it's not that good at keeping to the set speed when going downhill with no traffic around.
Any tips on making it hold the set speed?
Cheers,

Hmmm. That's odd - I tested my Kona's adaptive cruise control system some time ago on a trip to Sydney - I remember it being excellent at holding the set speed up and down hills as well as altering speed to maintain the set distance from cars in the same lane.

However I am not a fan of cruise control so after testing for a few hundred kms I have rarely used it again, so I can't give a long-term user report.

I use adaptive cruise when on the highway and down steep inclines. The speed is always at the set speed but I do continually operate with regen set to 3 at all times. If this makes any difference I do not know. In stop start traffic adaptive cruise is good and that is the only time I use it other than on the highway.
