Experienced this several times on uphill mountain driving, when approaching another vehicle that has slowed braking occurs to keep the prescribed distance, but when the vehicle in front speeds up the cruise control seems to apply full throttle and with boost applied the Ranger accelerates rapidly - which then triggers another application of the brakes to maintain the distance between vehicles. Only has occurred on the steeper grades , but scared my wife when she experienced it. Anyone else experience this ? On level road and less steep inclines the ACC works great, but on steeper inclines seems to also allow the speed to fall off a bit more than other vehicles I've owned - but they are 5 and 6 speed trannies which I suspect helps with maintaining consistent speed on steeper inclines.
