what do you store on that shelf?

I have an bumbershoot (German for umbrella I think) and a couple of fold-up ponchos and a towel to dry off with

Not a good idea to store anything on that shelf. It should only be used to conceal small items from view when the vehicle is parked. If you leave items on the shelf while driving, the motion of the car can cause these items to damage the connector to the temperature sensor located next to the shelf in the center of the vehicle.

I assume the shelf in the passenger footwell. It sounds great on paper, but one hard acceleration will launch whatever you store in there towards your passenger.

It's great for secretly storing stuff while parked though.

I prefer storing things in the hidden compartment behind the left brake light. :private:

Okay! I see about a 6" X 10" flat area up there. Yeah, I guess it could be useful when the car is parked.

But I have no hidden compartment behind the left brake light. There's a large'ish access panel but behind it is a piece of foam that sits on top of a metal plate sealing off whatever cavity might be back there. :|

You can gently move the insulation behind the panel to access the tail lamps. Guess you could hide small items back there. I would be careful that they don't drop way down where you won't be able to retrieve them.
