The cup holder in the front center arm rest is flimsy and may break, making it impossible to close the cup holder assembly.

    The flimsy circular piece of plastic that holds the cup holder in place broke. Can't see a fix for this.

    I've found a website with a "fix" package for about $180. Anyone know about it?

    Same as everyone else has said. It's a flimsy cheap design and it's broken at the base and misaligned.

    My cup holder broke finally as well. I was able to wedge it in, but upon taking it to a shop the second little nub attaching it broke and i had to resort to a hot glue gun to keep it in place.

    Without replacing it, tilt it up verticly and use a hot glue gun to seal that careful not to touch the opening mechanism for the console.

    There is also a replacement cupholder available at

    Other good resourses for this car are Rockauto/parksgeek and google lol.

  • Visitor,

    I've had this problem twice on two different cars. I replaced the armrest with one that has no cup holder at all. I like it much better since the other was so flimsy and could hold only a very small cup without tipping over (which happened once) so I never used it anyway.
