So, my 04, bought new, is 8 years old this month.
How many times have I driven at night over the last 8 years? Many.
Last night I entered the 04, started the engine and proceeded to bring the trip odometer back to zero. Getting to the trip odometer mileage display, what do I see? KM.
What? KM? I have owned this Impala for 8 years and have never before seen KM.
I drove with the trip odometer being displayed and found that the digits displayed miles as they always did and not kilometers.
My 09 has the capability of changing the display language from English to French to Spanish. No matter which language is displayed, the mileage is always in miles and not kilometers.
The "KM" is not displayed with the same intensity of light as the mileage digits next to it but it can be easily seen. The "KM" cannot be seen when the regular odometer display is shown.
I think you can change between miles and km using the DIC, but I don't remember how. Kind of weird that the trip computer says one and the odometer says the other though...might be a bad cluster, not that it's enough to worry about.

Changing between KM and Miles is very easy just press the reset and mode buttons at the same time for 2 seconds then KM is displayed.
Not only the odometer will change, also the DIC will display metric units.
