RX 300

The two cup holders on top of the center console. The holders are not deep enough T O hold a standard aluminum coffee mug. Also, the hole is much larger and does not hold the cup securely. While making a right turn at approx. 20 mph both cups tipped, spilling coffee on the floor and partly on my right leg. If this coffee has been very hot at the time it could have caused me to jerk my foot off the accelerator and possibly causing the car behind me to rear end me. Whether making a right or left turn the mugs will spill.
