Greetings
Have 2005 Insight. I really miss the cruise control feature. I read the excellent post by two members that intalled the Rosta Precision Control, Cruise Control. I believe they said they spent approx $390 on the parts then hand made a couple of brackets. I called my Dealer who said no because of liability and then refered me to Cruise Control installation specialist. They offer two options, the standard stalk on the column. I elected to get the two small wireless paddles that are an exact match for the stock two paddles on the right side for the CVT Insight . (cost is a little more) They clip to the lower left inside of the wheel and can be activated with your left thumb while your hand remains on the stearing wheel. Cost is as follows, One Rosta Kit, $225.00. Extra for two small paddles instead of stalk, $40.00. Labor to install, $180,00.
out the door 465.00 plus tax.
Works better then I expected and has improved mileage I believe. I would take some photos and insert them but have not mastered that art yet.

Thanks for the post. I did the same thing except I installed it myself. It worked for only about two weeks before it quit, though. Your costs are right about in line with mine. I guess I saved 180 bucks, but then again, if I take it into a shop to troubleshoot, so much for the savings. I would like to see how they mounted the control module on yours. What kind of place installed it for you?

Cruise control installation followup

The shop that installed my cruise control was South Bay Auto Air & Electric. Torrance California (310) 325 8917. The out the door price with the Stalk control is $425.00. There is a one year parts and labor warantee. Because I was sent there by the Honda Dealer, I assume the installation will not interfere with my norrmal car warantee or the extended warantee that I purchased.
