    Consider yourself on the lucky side of it then. Nothing more awkward then talking to someone with you while sitting on cruise only to notice your getting passed by everyone including semis. Kinda gets annoying after awhile.

    DBW has some advantages, but i'll take the good 'old vacuum canister anyday of the week.

    Well, i'm happy to announce that as of 12/13/10, a new flash of the PCM is available for early 2nd gen Speed3s. I'm not sure if it's the entire Mazda3 line that it applies to, but I know it was available to me.

    While having my car in for a check engine code dealing with fuel line problems, they did the reflash...and FINALLY...the cruise control problems seem to have ended. I'd had a good month to test it out and i've yet to have a single downhill/uphill or otherwise disengage the cruise.

    If you have had any problems with your cruise disengaging previously, head into your Speed dealer and have the reflash done. I also expected the range/average MPG to be fixed but it's still off by a good 2MPG.

    Well worth the time, and FOR ONCE, I can say good job Mazda. 1 problem down...bout 3 more to go now.

    First of all, this thread is a triumph of using the Search function. I'm having the same exact issue with the 2010 MS3 I purchased in February but it wasn't until a long drive on hilly roads (Taconic Pkwy) that I noticed it happening repeatedly. I need to schedule my car for service so I will discuss the reflash with them at that time.

    mine does this. going down hills makes it forget what it's suppose to be doing sometimes. It just makes me laugh because I like to think it has a quirky personality
