Question: While driving in cruise, the car misses; feel the hesitation?

The car is consistently missing while driving in cruise. The miss is more pronounced when I am in cruise and I accelerate.
What do I need to have my mechanic check to see why it's missing?
Approximately, how much will the diagnosis cost?
Since, this has to do with the engine which has an extended warranty on it, should there be any charge?

Extended warranties vary according to contract, so you'll need to talk to whoever is carrying the warranty. If it's through a dealership, the dealer service department is the place to go.

You described the problem pretty well, and that's the same info you should share with your mechanic--cruise controls pull a few different systems into play, so the problem will need to be diagnosed. Average shop diagnosis is probably $100, but it will vary.
