2016 civic no trunk or glove box lock?

Anybody able to confirm that this gen civic does not have any compartment in the car that can be locked completely? Other cars have a key lock to prevent someone from opening the trunk from inside the car. Thanks

It certainly does not look like it does. I wanted to lock my wallet up in the glovebox or console while I was out xc-skiing this afternoon and no such luck. I thought that was definitely overlooked by the factory as most vehicles have some way of locking up your valuables. i wouldn't think being a push button start and not bothering with keys would have any bearing on it.Our Accord has a key lock on the trunk release and its a push button start .

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've always found that hiding things is almost as good as locking them up. If thieves don't see it through the window they usually go to the next vehicle

Doesn't seem like anything new. Black Betty has no console, nor glove box, lock. There is no trunk lock key either. You lock the trunk release lever on the floor and the trunk and gas door are locked. The key fob will still release the trunk lock. Again, keeping the interior as clean (i.e. uncluttered) as the day it was delivered is the best way to deter thieves. If they don't see anything or telltales of things, they will go elsewhere. Locking stuff in the trunk while not being watched is likely to be the securest method.

I get one of the small under sear safes with a cable attached for use in locking up valuables. Cheap one for say $20 will work fine. Plus then it's under the seat and out of the way for casual break ins. Look for car gun safe, or pistol lockbox for car. Works great for wallets and such.

Also a good place to store your pistol as needed. Prefer locking that up over unlocked glovebox that is for sure!

and hiding you wallet in the glove box is the worst idea... thats where everyone hides it... common knowledge. I usually like those little map compartments down low on the door panels. I usually just put it down there with a piece of paper over it. Looks just like any other old discarded paper in an aging vehicle LOL

I've never seen a locking center console in any car I've ever owned.
If you're concerned, lock something in your trunk, its safer because it does NOT have a key hole that someone can pick the lock.......
Want to hide a wallet? Put it underneath the carpet in the spare tire problem solved
