Cup Holder Woes


Recommended Posts

  • 4 weeks later...

I have the same problem. Cannot believe only two of us have this issue. I have this SUV for three weeks now. Previous owner seems to be able to close it within a couple of tries by doing it slowly. Both me and my wife have difficulty in closing the cup holder. Maybe we are new to this vehicle.

make sure its not just gunked up..sometimes they get stuck down or up because they are dirty as heck. The same thing happens to my 98 LX470 and I take a baby wipe and clean all the way in the back and Wallah! it worked.

I don't know what you guys are talking about. I have no problems with my cupholder...My dad had a 1993 LS400 with no problems...my brother had a 2002 LS430 and definitely no problems. You want to buy a car with cupholder woes, then get a Mercedez. My dad got rid of his LS400 for a 1999 S420, and what a piece of crap. He is still crying, "I never should have gotten rid of my Lexus"...too late now. His cupholder won't close, he had it fixed for $150.00 and a week later it still won't close. His glovebox won't open, the heater really doesn't blow warm when it's cold outside evev after a half-huor ride, and the instrument panel is blacked out from all the light bulbs that are burning out. His LS400 was a 1993 and the instrument panel worked like new. Crying about cupholders, shame on you all :)
