Cupholder broke. Did a "functional fix" -- not pretty, but with two hands it works. - Visitor
Small plastic spring anchor tab broke. The spring does nothing now, so the cupholder doen not respond when the button is pushed. I looked at a new one I think they wanted about $160. I just push the button and pull the cupholder up with a small hook i keep in the center consol. - Visitor
At first the holder just gummed up and didn't slide smoothly. I cleaned it, thinking it was just syrup from Cokes or coffee, and that fixed it for awhile, but eventually it just fell apart. It was poorly constructed for the amount of wear and tear it was going to receive. Now, I just put my cup in the cavity. That works better. - Visitor
