I got one at JC Whitneys 8 maybe 9 years ago. It still works like a
champ. I put it on my mazda pickup. It's a manual so the installation
was easy. For the speed sensor only one hook up of the wires to the
tach and it holds the speed within a couple of miles/hour of the set
speed. Used to have to glue magnets on the drive shafts and mount a
sensor and run wires up to brain box, and a brake clutch switch, now
there is no separate integrator, it's all in the control unit. I
actually like it better than the factory cruise on my Toyota. It will
retain the set memory and doesn't have to be reset every time I stop or
drop below what ever speed it is that cancels the set speed on the
I've seen too many of the aftermarket ones fail to work after a while.
If you truly have to have one, I would suggest check on the warranty
on them and perhaps purchase an extended warranty until the date you
anticipate on keeping the car.
