Cup Holder Problem Fixed
By halfandhalf on


2001 Lexus ES 300 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Excellent car.
To improve the lousy cup holders, go to a Sprinkler Irrigation Store and buy a plastic Green Atrium Grate for a 4" drain pipe (about $6).
Get the green grate, not the black grate (better fit for cups) then spray paint it black.
It fits perfectly in the existing cup holders.
It even has a lip that secures it to the lid of the armrest.
You will think it was made specifically for the 97 - 01 ES300.
Now back to the rest of the car ... amazing ride, great freeway gas mileage, quiet, excellent standard sound system, comfortable, adequate power.
Mine has low miles, 48,000, and I suspect it will be a typical Lexus and be trouble free as my prior Lexus purchases have been.

Best Features

Balanced ride, sound system, freeway gas mileage, tight engine, smooth transmission, solid feel

Worst Features

An extra inch or two of leg room for a tall driver would be nice.

Thank you for the great cup holder tip. It works great. It was such an easy way to fix it. You are right. The part seems to be specially made just for this car.
