Brand new 06 delivered with sticking cupholder lid. Dealer fixed. Problem came back. Dealer fixed at our 7500 service a few weeks ago. Problem is back again. Anybody else have this recurring issue?

Re: Center console cupholder lid still sticks (pattyweb)

we had that problem on ours as well. The issue was that the rubber "pen holder" tray that sits just aft of the cup holder interfers with the lid operation (just barely). there is a redesigned pen tray that is just a mm or so smaller and doesn't interfere. We had the fix done to ours and no problems since.

we had our MY05 XC90's pen holder replaced a few months ago by the dealer because of the sticking cup holder lid. It just began sticking again a week ago.

It sticks because the rubber expands w/ the heat.<p>Slightly shaving the edge of the pen holder will alleviate this problem.

Re: Center console cupholder lid still sticks (safetyfirst)

Dealer admitted on recent service it is an issue. They'll try to fix, but it will start sticking again. Just another disappointment. So wish I had leased this POS. Major disappointment for $50K! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0">
