It's a minor inconvenience, and I know it's not the end of the world, but it is probably the kind of problem RGCC (Radar Guided Cruise Control - I dislike calling it Adaptive Cruise as it makes it sound like it's cleverer than it is) is designed to solve. It just removes the need to constantly adjust CC in small increments to maintain a safe braking distance.
Also the speed limiters discussed here are not a 'hard' limiter like one finds in minibuses or HGVs where once set, you cannot exceed them. The speed limiters we're discussing here are more like 'soft' limiters, as in they will prevent you from exceeding a speed you set, but just pushing down on the accelerator firmly will allow you to exceed the limiter, suitable for overtaking etc.
I've had CC like that. With a bit of experimenting, I found that the down shift and the up shift were not identical increments. To get a finer shift, it was possible to click (for example) down twice and up once, which took you to slightly above the speed of a single down shift. It might have been the other way around and your system may differ, but it's worth experimenting on a suitably clear road (with no surprise horizons nearby
I don't drive the Yeti often enough these days to have the time to experiment, but if I do get a car equipped with CC I'll be sure to have a play with it while it's quiet.
The best solution I've found is to switch off the CC, follow a car for 3 seconds to make sure you're following without gaining or losing ground, and then set the CC to that speed, but then you find in about 3 seconds the car in front has changed their speed so you have to faff about cancelling, and then trying to reset at a sweet spot again. It's just easier to set it to indicated 55 in roadworks (just about the only time I use CC) and then overtake everyone else at a GPS 53, as they all seem to drive at indicated 50, meaning a real speed of approximately 47ish.
But of course, if I ever end up in a situation where I'll be doing a lot of motorway driving, I'll get an autobox, radar cruise, and then just set it 80 and let everyone else in front of me dictate how fast I should be going (yes I know, that's not very advanced
