#2 Glovebox

Open your glovebox and switch the button to the snowflake. Now, start your car and turn your air conditioning to the coldest temperature. By doing this, it will divert the cold air into your glovebox so you can use it as a mini fridge.

#3 Speedometer

Look closely at your fuel gauge and see where’s the arrow pointing at. This will tell you which side the fuel cap is on. This will come in handy, especially if you’re renting a car.


#4 Sun visor

You can unhook your sun visor and tilt it to your windows. This way, your sun visor can still shade you if the sun is coming from the side.

#5 Steering Wheel

If you find your steering wheel’s position awkward, you can actually adjust it to your preference. Simply turn down the lever beneath, then adjust the steering wheel’s height.

#6 Seat Belt

You can adjust the height of your seat belt by pressing the plastic holder together, and then changing the height to suit you.

#7 Back Seat Handle

Almost all cars have a little hook next to the back seat handle. You can use this to hang clothes that shouldn’t get wrinkled.

#8 Rearview Mirror

Push the lever underneath your rearview mirror whenever you’re blinded from behind by a car driving close behind you to turn off the glare.
