2014 Chevrolet Silverado: Parking Card Holder

October 22, 2013

2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Sometimes it's the little things. The 2014 Chevy Silverado includes a little slot between the trailer brake controller and headlight knob. Not only does it perfectly hold parking cards (like the ones we need to get into the Edmunds garage and office), but puts them in the perfect location within easy view and reach next to the window. I'd imagine it would come in handy for parking garage tickets as well.

It's a little thing, but a big convenience.

    Only on the 2wd models, as the 4wd controller takes that space on 4x4's. Another clever feature is the switches at the bottom of the center stack are specific for the options on your truck, i.e., if you don't have all the bells and whistles you only have the number of switches for what you have instead of a bunch of blank spots.

    All cars should have a slot like that in that location.

    But it would also attract the attention of thieves who sees $$$$ signs with ID details for the taking. And a broken window to go with that.

    @diigii: You leave your ID card in the car instead of taking it to work with you?

    good for toll tickets too, for trolls like me without EZ-Pass

    @diigii The slot just requires a basic level of common sense to use. When you leave your truck you grab what is in the slot and pocket it. The biggest chance of something happening is when you run in to a gas station or fast food place for just a moment a
