Intermittently the vehicle hesitates when accelerating then catches up. This has been looked into numerous times and they tell me "no codes" appear so there isn't a problem. I can not duplicate this and do not know when it is going to happen. It is frightful when it happens on the expressway.

The cruise speed control dashboard light does not correctly indicate when the controller is controlling the vehicle speed. It is always lit when the control is activated rather than just when the control is engaged and controlling speed. I complained to a dealer service manager who stated the problem cannot be corrected.
