My Mach does not arrive until November. I can't find if it has standard cruise control or adaptive?
The car is loaded with the HP and the 700a/Elite package/appearance pack/Nav and the Tremec.

I have not used my cruise control since I bought this car. My former car I used it all the time. For some reason I just don't have a desire to use it at all. I am sure it has something to do with wanting to shift the car and enjoy the sounds.

I also find that on this car 6th gear has no place in my life. Totally useless unless of course you're looking to save some gas...but so far that has not been the case, for me anyway. lol.

Depends how often you go on highway or long empty road. Surely no-one drives at high rpm at constant highway speed, that's where 6th gear and cruise control come in handy, haha.

My wife's parents live 300 km away via highway so that's where I mostly only use it. I was testing adaptive cruise control in BMW 540i and I didn't like it very much at all, I don't need constant slowing due to slower cars and shortest distance isn't very safe, I concluded I don't need it one bit. Same for HUD. Both things are probably more useful for people who drive a lot of long distance trips.

Exactly!!! I can count on one hand how many times I have used 6th gear. I use it on the highway when there are a lot of cars ahead/around me and I am not getting anywhere fast. I just pop it in 6th and cruise quietly for a while.

I'm still waiting on my M1. But 6th gear couldn't be any worse than my 2019 GT with a M82.

I don’t think it is an mt82 issue. Just no need for overdrive

I had a 2015 Ecoboost and say what you will but that was a fun car. Lots of torque down low, great car for local streets. On the highway 6th gear still had plenty of giddyap. Could pass cars no problem. That was of course before Ford [email protected] up the gearing on the manuals.

No transmission issue. The current M82 4th is 1:1. 5th and 6th are OD. I consider 6th a deep OD.

At least the M1 only has one OD!

BTW…Mine was built today so I should be driving it in about 3 weeks. YEA!

If you're ever on Hwy 50, you might want to set cruise at XXXmph for hours, it may help!

FWIW I do not like adaptive cruise control. Have on my F150. So, that fact that it’s not on the Mach 1 is perfectly fine with me. But hey I’m old school.
