It does a pretty half-assed job of holding my spare change. [hah]

Otherwise, kinda useless...


Most cars have one under the passenger side power window switch too. No idea why.

I use the CD player in the car. i use burned CD-R discs. I keep the current pile of discs in that stupid useless and crazy slot. They flop over, but do stay in there. And then they are right at hand. (I do not care if they get scratched up,)
All I can think of is that it was designed a ways back to hold some sort of cellular phone.??
Otherwise it is just a stupid useless slot.

It holds my bluetooth ear piece. Barely.

I use mine as a place to hold some good luck charms... A purple rock I found as a teenager the day before I met my high-school sweetheart, a Micro-Machines Millenium Falcon figurine I got as a kid I've somehow held on to all these years even though all my others have disappeared, and a turquoise beaded necklace I found hanging under the seat of my first car and have stashed somewhere in every car I've owned since that has to be some kind of good luck because I've managed to maintain a clean driving record even with how I drive... Before I decided to stash those things there I used it for coins or a little trash cubby between destinations.

Business card holder, and they do not fit very good.
It is a poor design for anything practical.

I keep my car key separate from my other keys because of its size. When I'm not wearing a jacket I put my keys there so I don't have the bulk in my pants/shorts pocket.

Works very well for me as a place to keep my cell phone.
x2, but i have an old school $10 flip phone. It would be difficult to keep a smart phone in there. But I don't knock the design. I think almost anyone can find some kind of handy use for it. Kind of like the 2 cubbies on either side of the rear seats. My kids use those to put in their toys and stuff. I think the front one is relatively practical, because I used to use my cupholder as a phone holder, and would fumble anytime I needed to actually put a cup in there. >>>$.02

Cellphone fits there (mine is pretty small, so it works). I do wish there was a better spot (like the drawer in the MK1 Focus) for change. Those little coin holders ahead of the cup holders don't hold much....
