The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

And keep your arm off the armrest

Actual text from the owner's manual, right out of the glove compartment (which, by the way, contains no gloves):

"Stacking luggage or other cargo higher than the seatbacks or putting things on the rear package tray is dangerous. During sudden braking or a collision, it can become a projectile that may hit and injure passengers. Don't stack things higher than the seatbacks or put things on the rear package tray."

I don't know about the rest of you, but it seems to me that if they didn't want people to put, um, packages on it, by damn, they should have called it something other than the package tray.
