You can sometimes find these for less $$ than the Weathertech or other brands on Ebay. It never hurts to take a look once in a while.:biggrin:

We've never had an issue with ours spilling over, living in Michigan...

I have the GM rubber mats. I use the dead pedal foot rest a lot, there is nothing stopping debris and salt from accumulating at the bottom corners around this foot rest. Otherwise it is better than nothing to stop the stock carpets from soaking up the junk.

WeatherTech here too. They're a bit expensive but they're totally worth it, they do in fact catch everything.

Will continue using WeatherTech mats for my soon-to-be next vehicle. :D

Those aren't going to hold the water. If enough gets on there it'll spill out over the edge and ruin the carpet underneath. Weathertech in my opinion is the best way to go for winter climates.
In my case yes, even in the new car I went cheap and this winter showed me I need to buy it twice to get it right. $200 is steep but worth it if you run them year round and in my case have kids who could care less where they step.

You have a picture of the passenger side front one?

Important factor and frequency of getting impaled by snow may dictate this. Also $200 is a stretch for mats if you only plan on using them for 3/4 months of the year. Good thing about them is they hold up good enough to be resold in like new condition.

Depending on your next car, there could be 10 different options to pick from. Weathertech always had a slight bit more coverage when you found all the installed pics in said car. The 2 next up mats for far cheaper price were Lund carpeted catch-it and Aries styleguard. besides price, both gave you the lesser utilitarian look of the weathertechs that some seem to shy away from. $200 for an ugly set of mats in their eyes. For me Husky was the uglier set of mats.

So what do they look like? How do they fit? What did they cost?

I have Husky and am extremely satisfied with my purchase.
:th_alc:
What color? Do they fit really? I have the jet black interior on my 2011 Eco. I have been eyeballing the husky set on amazon for my car, I like the all weather ones from GM, but would like better coverage as I am in mine a lot and drag all kinds of crap in.

For reference, a Weathertech mat (set is $200). I think I personally will deal with extra cleaning effort and use some carpet protector annually in the footwells... $200 is $200 closer to a water/methanol injection system.

I have a black interior. I will try and get some pictures posted for you.

In my case I use them year round. No matter what I have dirty feet!

If anyone wants a set of the GM all-weather mats for a Gen 1 for cheap, let me know!

I'll put up a classified here in a bit, but they've been sitting around since I sold my car.

My wife isn't always the most careful and even with that, it's hardly any extra effort to clean up the little bit that ends up on the carpet. And there's a lot of snow/salt/slush here - I've been plenty happy with the GM mats.

I also go through extra effort to knock my shoes off before entering any vehicle in the winter. Sit butt first, then knock them together or if they have running boards bang against that.

Anecdotal evidence, went out with a co-worker and he mentioned his wife just gets in with snow boots fully covered in snow and doesn't think twice about it. It was a nice Lancer Evo, but the wife probably never does any car cleaning / detailing and doesn't realize the mess during Spring car cleaning.

Yeah, I'll try to knock off my shoes as well before getting into my car, or the Cruze, but as far as I know, she just gets in.

I'm the one who does all the car cleaning, but even so, the mats contain most of it.
