I must say that the Volt 1 glove box is the worst of any car I have owned, and I have owned a lot of cars. However, it is low on my list of priorities. I put my insurance info in there and maybe a couple of other small items.
I admit that I needed a little bit of a climb up the learning curve to stow a ball-point pen in with the papers and my data sheet and have it where I put it the next time I opened the box. But, after that.... I don't see what the big deal is. Close the lid slowly and all will be good. My comment applies to gen 1 design.
I keep a pen in the cell phone slot next to the shifter. Registration and proof of insurance in the glove box. Gosh - now that we don't need paper maps any more, that is about it. Even gas receipts are a thing of the past.
