Default duplicating for car model



hi! can anyone help? I am fairly new to Maya and am doing the Polygon Audi TT tutorial from Michael McKinley, have finally done half the car but the tutorial says to dupe and reverse, to save having to build the WHOLE care, but I cannot find a way to do this.
searching on Maya for flip or reverse doesn't seem to be bringing up what i;m looking for.

HELP?! so close, yet so far...........................
