2012 Toyota Camry SE: Useless Cupholder Contraption

2012 Toyota Camry SE

Oh, I know, this plastic piece does serve a function of sorts, it just doesn't do it very well.

Snap it into place and you get spring loaded thumbs that theoretically hold your drink in better. Need more room? Just pull it out and you get one gigantic receptacle that could possibly hold three drinks if you're really that thirsty. 

In reality, the spring loaded thumbs don't grab all that well and when you pull the thing out it doesn't really give you that much more room. Would much prefer a more basic setup that concentrates on doing one thing well instead of two things poorly.
