Floor Mats

Thu Dec 27, 2012 9:16 am

Not a very exciting but necessary topic. I always buy the all-weather mats from the dealership when I purchase the car. They usually run about $85.00 for the set, made with heavy duty rubber and fit exactly. When I bought the i MiEV, I did the same thing but I was told they didn't know when they would be in or if they could even get a set. I still haven't heard from them, so I went looking for a suitable substitute. I found a set on CarId from Lloyd Floormats - Rubbertite All Weather. I just got them in last night, just in time for this winter weather. They are the exact size and shape as the carpet mats that come with the car. The driver's side comes with the holes to keep the mat in place on the mat-locks. The rear seat mats fit around the front seat supports. I'm very happy so far with these mats, I'll just have to wait and see if they last or not. They are made from heavy rubber and come with a five year warranty

I'm very interested in doing this exact same thing. Mind sharing some pictures?

I'll take some this weekend. The only problem so far is the funky odor. I hope they outgas soon, smells like some kind of soy-bean based plasticizer or something (I made that up, but it does smell more organic than chemical).

I hope they are not like the bath mats we bought last week - strong smell and still going on 10 days later

Kind of like that, mine are still going strong but starting to wane or I'm getting used to it.

Here are the pictures of my car with the mats. Other than the strong smell, I really like them and think they will last a long time. The dots match with the six dot theme of the car. I don't know if anyone else has noticed this theme in the car or not but there is a six dot pattern located throughout the vehicle including the taillights but that is another topic.

Hi Mlucas,
Happy New Year !, I must be imagining it, But I am sure I see 7 dots repeating pattern, a group of six dot s around a center one dot, so 7 all up. I haven't checked the lights yet though..

Happy Electric New Year to you and your spouse.

Topic Detour Warning! Since we aren't being that strict and the topic of Floor Mats could use some livening up, I'll jump in on this one.

Maybe you got a different pattern in NZ. Look at the inside lock button, I have six dots. At the right upper edge of each door is a six dot pattern. The hub caps have a six dot pattern and if you look at the sides of the taillights, another six dots. Here's mine, what does yours look like?

I've never noticed this before on other vehicles I've owned. It's definitely an attention to details that Mitsubishi has included in these vehicles since they serve no other purpose than aesthetics. It's kind of like finding the hidden Mickeys at Disney. Has anyone see other examples?

I took a risk and ordered these in yellow... bad decision, as the blue interior lighting turns them a sickly green. :oops: So, CarId.com offered to replace them with black mats if I simply cut up the yellow ones and send photographic proof. A bit wasteful, but understandable and great customer service!

Nice to know that bit of information. I was hoping for purple as my son loves the color but they aren't offering purple, black it was for my i MiEV. Yellow must have been quite lively except for the nighttime lights. Darn!

I'm still thinking of putting some purple in the car. I want to upholster the side door panels and repaint the center console a deep purple. Projects for warmer days.
