Q: How do I use the trip meters?

How do I use the trip meters?

The trip meters show you how many miles you have driven over a certain period. This can help you determine how many miles you drive a month, or how much distance you have covered during your current trip. Your car has two trip meters, which are displayed on the instrument panel. To see the trip meters, press the Sel/Reset button until the information display switches to Trip Meter A or Trip Meter B. To reset one of the trip meters, press the Sel/Reset button until the meter is displayed, then press and hold the Sel/Reset button until the meter reads 0.0.
