Just Bought a 2013 Sedan S

So i brought home my first new car. 2013 Focus Sedan S for 14,410 total drive out. I believe the actual sale price was something near 13,300. 3 Miles on the odometer, it never went anywhere. I brought it home and spent the better part of 3 days trying to switch my temperature reading from celsius to Farenheit. I been all over FF reading and reading. I believe the S base models do not allow this, and that the digital display does nothing but show trip/odometer reading. My manual says to use the controls on the steering wheel which i dont have. Does anybody know if the model S has any useful info on the display?
Thanks!

Theres a little button right under the display. The only thing it does is reset the trip though, just like the old analog trip/odometer does.

Congrats on the new wheels. The Focus S is a heckuva bargain at that price -- a lot more car than a Nissan Versa, for example.

If it were I, I would pick up the phone and call the salesman who sold me the car and make it his problem to figure this out. I'm sure he gave you that "instead of giving me less than a 10/10 on the survey, please call me if you have any issues" spiel. Might as well call him on that.

Nice car and agreat price. I hope it serves you well. The metric system is superior and maybe your car is encouraging you to learn centigrade.

0=32
10=50
20=68
30=86
