That just seems backwards to me. If I'm cruising at the speed limit of 70 on the interstate and find I'm passing a car in the right lane very slowly I want to speed up by one or two mph to get around him, not 5mph. A couple of clicks does it on my Tahoe, but not on the Subaru.
In that situation it's also possible to press the accelerator pedal, pass, and release the pedal, all with cc on -- don't need to change the cc speed setting.

It is amazing what information that is in the OM.

Actually, I had read the manual but not that far down in the discussion.

I have the same problem ad Grand Dad. I have a '17 Outback and my wife an '18 Forrester.

It's Subie-intuitive. As is the equally arcane process for switching between ACC and regular CC.

I prefer the way my 2015 does it to the new ones. I normally set the adaptive cruise control to speed limit + 9 or speed limit + 4.

I agree. From a human factors perspective, it's a more logical and intuitive progression ... i.e. pressing farther = "more."

I'm not sure I have ever set my cruise to run right at any speed limit though.
But I don't have any complaints on how my '17 works. It's just a matter of getting used to it. I can see where switching back and forth between two vehicles that operate differently would be a pain.

Unless I'm in a 25 MPH zone, I typically set mine 5 over, so the 5 increment works fine for me. But I have a couple of communities around me with 25 as the set speed, and my son-in-law was ticketed for 5 over, so I watch those areas closely. I really like that ACC will keep me slow through there, and maintain my spacing when the inevitable someone pulls in front of me only doing 20.

Hmm. I have an '18 Limited, but a short press +/- by 1 and a long press does the same thing...but I don't have adaptive cruise control. Maybe that changes things? Or mine has an error. I like it the way it is though.
