The glove compartment is a storage unit located in front of the front passenger seat, at roughly knee level. To open the glove compartment, pull up on the lever at the top of the door, then pull the door out.

Tip

The glove compartment is a great place to store your vehicle information, such as your registration and insurance. That way, you know where your information is, and it’s easy to access in an emergency, accident, or after being pulled over.
