I have an issue. OK, not so much an issue — more of an argument between me and my fiancé. I just bought a 2008 Dodge Caliber. My new toy has everything I love, including cruise control. I do a lot of highway traveling, and I love my cruise control. My fiancé says it’s not good that I use cruise control all the time, and that it’s bad for the engine or transmission. Is he right? Is using my cruise control too often bad for my car — will I break my cruise control if I use it too much? If so, why, and when should one use cruise control? Love you guys! — Sara
