Well my salesman never mentioned anything concerning using cruise control only to ensure I do not go over 4500 rpm. I did use CC a few times without reading the manual first as well. I doubt I did anything to the car but thank you for pointing that out to me. I literally had the car a few weeks and then had to ship it so I was trying to put some miles on it by driving around. I definitely keep in mind not to use cruise control when driving back home.
