Yea mine are the same way. They should have made it where you could take them out if you wanted. They work great with glasses from home though.

Ford tried to "improve" the cup holders in 2013. So they added that rubber piece. In my experience it will destroy a foam cup in about 4 - 5 inserts and removes. Otherwise it works good. But it is a pain in the butt. I have had to stop buying drinks at gas stations that come in foam cups, otherwise after a while they just start leaking into your cup holder.

I hate them too and as soon as I figure out how to remove it I will make my own inserts which will not destroy cups.

I have had to use a paper towel on the rubber side in order to prevent it from destroying the cups.

I really liked my 05 Mazda 6 cup holders. They were crazy deep and had a cover when not in use.

I would really like to fit the Fusion cup holders in it as they are perfectly designed but that is not gonna happen. I will be asking the dealer on my first service to remove the rubber.

The base 2013 SE cupholder (front and back instead of side-by-side, with the parking brake further back) has no foam retainer. They are kind of smallish, but otherwise not too bad.

The cupholders are one thing I miss about my 2004 Neon - 3 of them, and they were huge (and not in the way).

Agree that the rubber makes it hard to insert and remove my coffee mug. I also don't like that with the mug in it interferes with opening the arm rest. How hard is it to design this stuff correctly?
