How do I use the trip odometers?

Your vehicle has two trip odometers, which tell you the distance you have traveled since the last reset. The vehicle displays one trip odometer at a time, directly below the standard odometer. To toggle between the two trip odometers, press the Trip switch, which is located to the right of the tachometer. An A or a B is displayed next to the trip odometer, to let you know which trip you are currently viewing.
