Nope.  My 94 Lexus cancelled the cruise once below 25, and so does my 07
Prius.

The 2010 drops out of cruise below 25 too, but, unlike my 2005, it remembers
the setting and can be resumed by pushing the control upward once one is
back above 25.  In the 2005 I had to manually accelerate back to the desired
speed and set the cruise again.

Another difference I've noticed, one which may indicate an adjustment is
necessary, is the cancellation of cruise when the brake pedal is depressed.
The 2005 was so sensitive I could cancel the cruise by brushing my foot
across the brake pedal.  In the 2010 the cruise doesn't cancel until brake
action begins with the brake depressed more than an inch.  I've reverted to
cancelling it by pulling the lever toward me.

yep.  That was the Toyota standard for a long, long time.  I wonder when
someone wised up?

Perhaps when I and a billion other Toyota owners whined about it.  :-)

yeah, but I'm pretty sure they couldn't hear me grumbling in my car as I
pulled away from the toll booth--which is the only time it really
affected me...
