If we Americans typically deal with 4 coins.... quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, why do auto manufacturers only provide slots for 3 in their coinholders? I just went through the drive-thru and became aggravated as usual that I had to scrounge through the normal collection of "stuff" in my console to get to 3 cents.

Excellent question. I'm in the auto design biz but I haven't done interior in over a decade. If I remember I'll ask some coworkers.

There are a few other designers on this board as well maybe they can answer your question.

Well, the koreans don't even give you a change holder, I use the ashtray for coins and salt......you never know when they are going to forget to salt your fries!!

Pennies should be abolished... what a waste of time and for nothing at all substantial...

really, why do we still have them? Tradition?

No official word on this yet but now that I have had some sleep, I have an educated guess.

I think the initial reason for the coin holders was for easy access to your coinage wile going through coin operated tollbooths. (Not very many in Michigan.) I have never seen a toll that wasn't at least rounded up to the nearest nickel or dime. Therefore no need for a penny holder.

I still think it is lame that most don't have them considering all of the drive troughs in this country.
