2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Long-Term Road Test

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe: Glovebox Button

November 22, 2013

2013 Hyundai Santa Fe

As far as issues with cars/trucks go, this is a minor one. But every time I try to open the glovebox in our long-term 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited AWD to grab the fuel log, I press what looks to be the "open" button, the one with the key slot, but nothing happens.

That's because I need to press that bigger button to the left.

Clearly I need to drive this Santa Fe more so I stop pressing the wrong button.

Mike, This is one of those "it's just you" moments. When I saw the headline and the picture my eyes immediately focused on the large button. You apparently have an affinity with the magpie and are drawn to the shiny bit. Me, it's obvious that the large button is the one that opens the door.

Ditto to banker. I immediately looked to the big button on the left as well.
