Darn Cup Holders!

I seriously hate the cup holders in the 03 Focus ZTS! Pretty much every time you take a corner your drink is going across the car. I don't know how much soda has been spilled on the passenger side because of the cups falling out of the cup holder during turns!

Do you actually have the black cup holders or just the depression where the cup holders are supposed to be? That happened a lot to me before I realized that I did not actually have cupholders, but apparently is common for folks to lose them.

Nope just the holes. I didn't know there was supposed to be something else to them until today.

That is why I do not eat or drink in my car, Atleast for kicking up sand in my car; I can deal with that.

Even with the rubber inserts, you can loose your drink cornering. When your full large cup of iced coffee from dunkin donuts, and the rubber insert, hit your passenger window, you know you are cornering hard!

I might be better off tossing the drink out the window instead of it spilling you car and get coffee scared for the rest of your vehicle ownage, even if you tried hard to get it up with carpet cleaner or chemicals and what not.

Wrong again! I like to drink, eat and smoke inside my SVTF. I like the fact that no matter how bad I mess it up, I can always make it look good again. I've had quite a few iced coffee spill in my SVTF, come to FocusFest next year, I'll give you $20 if you can find a coffee stain.
