Mystery Compartment

I've had my car for over a year now and I think this is maybe the second time I've even opened it. It looks as though it is made specifically for something...looks like a small trailer jack fits??? Oh, also the 05 brochure says that it is equipped with a 12V outlet in the back that I am still yet to find.

Is that a wagon specific thing there in the pic? I read this and went out to my 05 and I dont have that, but mine is the sedan.

Teen years?? Like you don't still have "things" to stash...

It looks like you could fit at least a 12 pack in there.. But I agree, it looks it was designed for something specific.

I Have the same compartment in my 06 FXT. My First thought was for an umbrella but that wouldn't make a lot of sense. Put the umbrella away in the back then run around to get in.
With the rubber mat covering the carpet you would never know it was there, I Found mine prob a year after I bought it. Unfortunately I haven't come across any well placed compartments in my 09 WRX yet.

I'll have to go look for that. I don't think my M4 will fit in there, but I bet a Mossberg riot gun with a folding stock would fit just right...

Come to think of it my 12 gauge equipped with an 18 in barrel and pistol grip would fit nicely and legal in Ok but inaccessible in a hurry if baddies are on my tail...

Yeah I got a bunch of those compartments in my wagon too...and as for the 12V DC outlet in the back, yeah I was looking for mine too but I think it turns out that its only on the Limited/STi editions...

Oh dang! Looking at that picture more closely....I never noticed that compartment before! Need to go check to see if i have it lol...Granted I do have that all weather mat so that's probably the reason...
