    What is this for...?

    Automatic 2.0 Base ILX. To the right of the gear shifter. What purpose does it serve?

    I think it has something to do with shift lock. Any auto drivers want to chime in?

    Perhaps something to do with removing the center console panel? *shrug*

    I think you are right, another dealer mentioned it was for manual cars. Is there supposed to be a cover of some sort on it for Autos? Should I just remove the tape?

    Seems a bit weird.

    I'm almost 100% sure that it is a Shit Lock Over Ride so even without the key in the ignition turned to "unlock" the transmission, you can push down on that and shift the transmission.

    This is a great feature cause if your vehicle loses power, you may not be able to shift it, this can be a problem when you want to tow your vehicle and the tow truck operator needs to put the vehicle in Neutral to do so.

    you should check if they provided a button to insert, if they didn't, they should eventually....it will make that trim look so much more cleaner without any holes like that.

    That is what I was thinking as well.

    If you look at any of the pictures of the 5 speed automatic console on line, they all have a cover (I assume factory) for that opening. Check with your dealer.
