Great fitment imo. There are two areas to address on the driver's side and I'll try and get a picture of that tomorrow because I didn't notice the issue until driving.

First issue is that the material bulges out slightly next to the acceleration pedal. I think this can be fixed with velcro.

Second issue is that on the driver side being that I'm only 5'6" my seat is kinda far forward and it's pushing the mat forward slightly which is causing it to buldge up right in front of the seat. I think this can be fixed by just readjusting the location of the mat.


For $115... You really can beat these imo. They feel great as mentioned above. Super nice on the feet. I have zero complaints so we'll see how they hold up through the winter. As mentioned, I may get some temporary winter mats to give over them just to protect but we'll see.

So it's been a few weeks now and I can still say that I am 99% happy with the floor coverings however there are a couple of "issues" imo.

For starters, the driver side has two "areas of concerns" which really aren't that big of a deal however they are worth mentioning.

The first area is next to the accelerator. I've noticed that the mat buldges out slightly and if you rest your foot to the right of the accelerator it feels a bit awkward. It's hard to explain but Im sure you can understand what I am saying. The fix will most likely be to add some velcro to the backside to keep the car mat tight against the tunnel.

The second area that is more of an annoyance than anything is the portion that goes over the lower portion of the seat belt. After a few times of the seat belt being used, the car mat pops out from under the trim.

It would have been awesome if the manufacturer had an opening for the seat belt to pass through. That's the best fix imo and it might be one I address with a seamstress. If it costs $50 or so to do the work, it'll be worth it. (no idea why the picture is displaying upside down)

Last thing worth mentioning, these are super easy to clean and I am glad I went with the black thread. I'm not sure how easy or how long white thread (or any lighter color) would hold up, but I think black was a good choice.
