Has any one added cruise control to their car? I am looking at a Rostra 250 9504 kit and was wondering how hard it would be to add.
Hi, ok yes I had a Rostra CC installed by a professional shop. I did not want to attempt it myself. It may not be too hard to do, but the shop quoted about 2 hours and they did a fantastic job. I purchased the Rostra unit and installation from them.

It works exactly the same as the factory cruise does, just it's on a stalk instead of the steering wheel. Maintains speed fine and allows for incremental speed increases/decreases of 1km/1mile per hour everytime you push the correct button. Engages seamlessly and has a light to show when active.

I've got a couple of photos here showing optimum placement of the stalk on the steering column. This is in my opinion the best spot although you may wish to put it on the right side. The only drawback with this location is that it is hard to see if the light is on during the daytime, as it is mostly behind one spoke of the steering wheel. Does not impact its performance.

I have two Versas, both 2008 one is a S and the other is a SL. The SL has factory cruise built in. The S did not so I had this installed last summer.

Again, I would recommend you have it done professionally from a reputable shop.

Would be glad to share any other information.

word of warning.
get it done professionally.

it can be very very very risky to get it done by inexperienced people.


there are known cases here, where peoples cruise control stopped working at speeds of 160kmph. It just wouldnt disengage.
then they would call the cops and cops would tell to place the car in neutral and then turn it off and then turn it on again to activate the brakes.

in other cases, it stopped working at speeds of 140 kmph, and police patrols were deployed to bring the car to a stop by impact.
