I personally would rather have to hold the button than just press it so I don't accidentally reset something I don't want to. I certainly wouldn't call it a design flaw.another example of a very minor but annoying design flaw... Why should u have to press and hold to reset guages...
What you see as a flaw I see as a convenience. I hated accidentally resetting my meter when cycling between trips in my Mazda. It was click for switch and click and hold for a second to reset, so sometimes I'd accidentally reset just trying to switch trip displays.another example of a very minor but annoying design flaw... Why should u have to press and hold to reset guages... ALL other cars ive ever had, fords included, u press the button and let go and that's it '0'. If ur resetting all ur settings at once it feels as if it's taking an eternity... Again, minor but annoying.
I've been experimenting here recently with the two resets. Reset Trip 1 right after filling up and measure combined MPG. Then reset Trip 2 whenever I go on extended trips to see highway mileage.I found that one out myself. Yeah, the manual SUCKS!
Don't forget you need to reset all of the trip items individually. If you want to reset trip 1 and trip 2, there are a lot of steps to do this.
I only reset trip one at each tank of fuel. Trip 2 is reserved for long trips.
On my first tank, I did not do it correctly, so the information was not only for that tank of fuel.
