I don't see any either, but then I've never actually locked one of the ones I've had in the past, so it's not much of a loss for me.

I brought this up a few months ago with the dealership as well as this forum. There is no lock on the glove box, which generally contains personal information such as registration and insurance information. In addition, some of us may legally carry a licensed handgun and have the need to lock it up in certain situations.

I received a couple of responses from owners stating that "they never use it", but the lack of a locked glovebox or other secure area is a definite shortcoming - we have a significant number of car break-ins in my town (Las Vegas) and I can almost guarantee that the Palisade will gain a reputation as a vehicle that cannot secure personal information and potentially, valuable items.

Trust me when I say this. If they can break into your palisade, that lock for the glove compartment is not going to deter them from opening it. It can be jammed opened in under a minute.

Most cars, today, Have locking glove boxes so you can lock out the trunk being opened at valet parking
No trunk to lock on the Palisade

I absolutely agree, but it's still a deterrent. We live in a great neighborhood, however, there are a lot of car break-ins and they rarely break into a locked glovebox or cars that don't have things laying out where they can be seen.

Hello,
Yes, it was very frustrated knowing that a locked compartment is missing. But we solved a problem with buying a storage tray that fits in the middle large compartment. Since that space is large and deep enough, the tray covered up top, then no one notices that under the tray exists a hidden compartment. I bought it from Amazon and now satisfied. ?

Can you send a link to the one you bought that fits? I also like to be able to lock things like that.

Do any Hyundai's have a locked glove box?
I've had 2016 Tucson Limited and now 2020 Tucson and Palisade Limited - none of them have the lock on the compartment.

So it's not just the Palisade. Could be a fleet wide thing. Does Telluride have a locked glovebox?

I use this under my driver's seat.

Really? There's enough room for one of those? Wow.

I’ve never seen a vehicle which uses a fob and not a physical key with a locking glove box. Has anyone else? If so, how does that work? I’m aware that many fobs have a physical key inside, but that seems like a giant pain to dig that out each time you need to lock the glove box.

my Genesis had a switch in the glove box you could switch so the fob did not open the trunk neither would the button on the dash.
You had to take the physical key out of the fob and lock the glove box. That way when you had your car parked by a valet they
did not have access to either trunk or glove box with the fob. My last KIA K900 did the same thing.
Never seen it in an suv

Just traded my 2015 Genesis for the 2021 Palisade, I had a locked glove box in the Genesis
