    I know all of you probably know this but I found a hidden sliding drawer in the center console by the floor. I was cleaning my car and I was wondering what is this, I pulled it out and found a penny along with a whole bunch of dirt.. lol. Just thought I'd put it out there if anyone was unaware of the wonders our Prius has.

    I keep a spare car key in it . . . . which was golden when my other one failed.

    We had our 2010 for about 3 years before I realized there was an upper glove box...

    When I got the car, I spent ages looking for the locking wheel nut key. I was on the phone to the previous owner and he was adamant it was in the glove box. About 2 hours of searching before I found that out.

    I found mine when I was vacuuming the front floor mats a few months after purchasing the car.. The prior owner had dumped a coke or something in it. Glad it came out far enough to clean it.

    There aren't enough cupholders for sure. the ones in the doors are too small and I have never gotten anything to fit in them. My phone mount sits in the cupholder so then im left with one. Often times I use that "hidden compartment" as a cupholder
