Not having a lock is no concern for me. If you lock it a thief will open that glove box in 10 seconds. What I don't like about the glove compartment is it does not have a device which dampens the lowering of the compartment. It just drops if you don't hold it. It also lacks a light. I'm surprised they missed this.

You can open the trunk either by pushing the button on the drivers door, OR if you have the smart key in your pocket, you can open it, OR you can press the icon on the smart key to open the trunk. How many ways do you need to open it? If the car is locked and someone who does NOT have the smart key in their pocket will NOT be able to open your trunk unless they broke in and pressed the button on the door. Which they could also do in any other car that has a key hole in the trunk.......
If a thief has already broken into your car, getting into the glove box is small potatoes.
if someone wants to break into your car, they aren't going to pry open a trunk with no key hole in it and push down the rear seats to do it, they are just going to smash your window.
I would think that the glovebox key and the trunk key would be nice for valet parking security.

This is a Civic, let's not forget. If they put all this stuff in a Civic, how are they going to sell Accords, ILXs, TLXs, etc.? They also can't price it out of the market with its competitors. Seems pretty amazing to me the feature content they *did* put in it.

I agree. I am not complaining at all. It's a very nice car with many awesome features.

There is no where in the 2016 Honda Civic LX that can be locked away. I wouldn't trust the trunk either. Mine pops open once in a while for no reason. A week ago, my trunk must have popped open because some thieves took about $500+ worth of items out of my trunk and then pushed down the back seat to enter the car and take my owner's manual out of my glove box. I have been reading that there are trunk issues with some of us, but nothing is being done. If you ask me, the car would be more secure with a locking glove box and a locking trunk. I can't leave anything ever in my trunk. I carry a back pack to work with my work papers and laptop. I now have to bring my backpack and everything else into stores with me if I stop anywhere on the way to or from work. I have written Honda HQs in Torrance and have a call into a service dept. If they refuse to do anything, I will visit a body shop to see if they can make some changes so that my car is secure. This is not what I expected from Honda. I am not happy. If my car were paid for, I'd sell it back to them.

more than likely, your trunk opening is a result of your trunk release on your keyfob. this isn't a civic thing...this has been going on for years with the trunk release on fobs that in pockets.

i know on my previous '11 sonata, people were complaining of the same issue. most realized it was them accidentally pushing the button when they removed the key out of pocket, or something else in the pocket/purse that was opening it. their first rebuttal was why isn't the doors unlocking then? i find it hard to believe that i'm only hitting the trunk button. well, if you unlock your doors with keyfob, they will automatically 're-lock' themselves after a set period (usually 30 seconds). so, you may be unlocking your doors as well, but, they will lock back up...trunks can't do that.

there was a slide switch/lock on the inside of the trunk that would disable the keyfob function. this worked for the majority of them. i personally, have never had the issue, but i also keep very little items in the pocket with my fob.

i am not familiar enough with the 10th gen to see if there is a built in work around/fail safe or not. manual might provide that information.

hiding from those who might be looking for me

I was about the reply the same thing. I've been reading this thread, and I am no sure if I am missing something, or if its because I have a 2016 Civic EX with different features than the LX.

The key fob is both a sensor and a key. On the back, there is a little switch. If you slide the switch and pull the metal/silver section, you get a manual key. You can use this key to lock the glove compartment. You then keep the physical key and hand the sensor to the valet. This way, they can still drive your car, but only you can open the glove compartment box.

I accidently turned off my car with the shifter left in drive. The next morning, the battery was totally dead. When I tried to open my trunk to get my jumper cables, I was unable to do so either with the button in the car or with the key fob. The 2016 Civic does not have a manual key lock in case your stuck in this situation.
