Cruise Control Disengaged

Hi I am Joel and I have a 2007 Nissan Altima. I have a question about the traction control on my car. I was driving in wet conditons this morning and I believe I lost tractions and when I did my cruise control automatically disencaged and I had to set it again. It did it again a little while later. I figured that I needed to stop using cruise so i turned it off. I was just wanting to make sure that this is a safety feature of the car and that it will disengage cruise if the car senses that it has lost traction? I promise not to use cruide control when it's raining.

thanks

Joel

Don't use cruise control when it's raining. Yes, what you are experiencing is a safety feature.

That would be pretty dangerous if the cruise was still engaged while losing control.

Yep definitely sounds like a good safety feature.

You want to eliminate this safety feature, but a Toyota

If you're losing traction, you're driving too fast. Stay within the limits of your tires for the current conditions and you won't end up spun out in a ditch, or worse.
