sean t. I'm not talking 64 oz drinks hahaah, I usually have a 32oz coffee or water or soda with me, I have an hour commute to work and a 45 minute commute to school. I take a lot of road trips too, so things like cupholders, armrest placement, radio layout, etc. are all things that would be bothersome if not set up well.

I've bought a 44 oz plastic cup before and it doesn't fit in my Taurus' drink holder. Neither does a paper 32 oz cup. The bases are too wide. A 32 oz plastic cup fits fine though, cause it has a slimmer bottom section.

After the one console I bought, where 5 drinks tipped over in under two weeks (some mine, some passengers), I've decided that cupholders are pretty important.

macdiesel I think you your drink doesn't fit it your cup holder, it's time for personal reflection.

Sniper Focus Actually I think the biggest flaw is the dash, if Ford would've clearanced the bottom of the dash just slightly.

If I had a truly beater of a Focus then I would have half the mind reform the bottom of the dash with a heat gun.

rambleon84 I have not had any real issues with cup size. Yes, larger cups will hit the front console, may make the cups lean a little bit. For center consoles with out the armrest, there are an additional two cup spaces between the two front seats. I have not had a cup not be able to fit there. The '05-07s with out armrests have six places for cups/bottles (one in each front door sill for bottles.)

So six cup holders for a car that holds five passengers should be more than plenty. Also, stop drinking/using such large cups! Do you really need a 64oz cup of anything while driving lol

Sniper Focus I have the '02+ EDM console and the cup holders work much better, when I thought they would be worse because they're smaller.

The stock ('02-07 USDM/SVT) cup holders are useless because whatever XL drink you have it will hit the dash, and the "normal" drinks aren't secure, so what's the point of the big hole?

The EDM cup holders are smaller and they secure the normal drinks nicely, I would auto-x with a drink in the car. If I get a "small base" 32oz cup it fits snugly in the rear holder. I don't buy gas station sodas larger than 32oz anymore even if all the sizes are the same price, so it works out for me.

Sounds like sean t does?

macdiesel If I have a bigger drink than its in my cup holders just take out the rubber cup holder and a larger drink will fit. I'm not talking 2 liter size sodas but you can get a larger cup in there when you remove the rubber inserts. Besides, my car is so stiff over bumps, likely to spill any thing bigger than a canon soda.

FocusRus No, lucked out with door cup holders. I was just wondering. But if you think I'm going to Wallyworld for one of those "top door panel types", ain't gonna happen. There's no "good luck" in that. Lol

Focusblackzx5 and..I don't know if you have the ones in the door panels ? I think they are larger
