Does anybody have any feedback on how the all weather floor mats hold up to winter driving. I'm from Canada and we have quite a bit of snow. Do you find that water gets into the support hooks when the water level is to high? Am I better off getting a generic winter mat or would these OEM mats from Honda do the trick. Thanks.

I haven't had them through a winter yet so I can't help you there....but

After buying them (from the stealership :() I anticipate I'll be buying some aftermarket ones - - at least one for the driver's side.

I have kept them in all summer (took the stock mats out and haven't put 'em back in since I bought them) but will likely be buying aftermarket ones that will fit as close as I can get them.

I had a '98 Civic and i found with all the start/stop/turning the water kinda sloshed off the mat and onto the carpet BUT after a season of that I put an old towel kind of around it to catch the water.

This'll be my car's first winter ('07 Sedan) and I wanna keep the carpet below bone dry.

I have an 06 EX coupe and the dealer wanted $149.00 for winter mats. I ordered a set from these guys (2 fronts and a one piece back at the time for $64.00). They have worked great and you can put them over the matts that already are in the car. That way you protect your carpet with two layers. The rubber winter ones, and the regular mats that came with the car. I don't get any salt stains on my carpets with them. They are custom fit too

I purchased the rubber OEM All season floor mats about 2 months ago for my si sedan and I have been more than pleased with the protection. The protection is just about as good as good as a trojan!! I looked under my mats the other day and there wasn't a spec of salt or snow residue to be seen. This is all after a solid month of daily driving getting in/out of my car numerous times during the day when its snowing!

These mats ROCK!! :thumb:

The dealer threw these in for free when I bought the car.

So far they have done an excellent job of keeping salt/mud off my regular mats. They are extremely easy to clean. Just take them out and spray them down with the hose.

I will replaceing them when they (if) they wear out.

I'm in Toronto - and I bought a set of Michelin mats from Canadian tire ($25 each for the front, $12 or so each for the rear). They're on sale right now for $20. If your car is a manual, I wouldn't get these mats, at least not if your foot is a size 10 or bigger - I find the back of my left heel gets caught on the edge of the mat pretty often when shifting. Also, I had to cut the driver's side mat a bit to fit around the gas pedal. The mat's are amazing though, they're significantly thicker than the Honda mats, and a lot cheaper. If I were you, I'd get 3 of them for the passengers, and find a better fitting one for the driver's seat.

I've got OEM mats. They are cheap compared to the allweather mats that VW sells. If I had to buy them again I would try the weathertech mats.

I have the Honda all weather mats for my Si coupe and I have to say they are nice, they are custom fitted very nicely and the dealership gave them to me for 100$. I also got the trunk tray which is great and that was only 100$ as well. Plus everything has the nice civic logo on them.

Not to sure where you live man, but you can order them online from weathertech canada WeatherTech Automotive Accessories - Car Mats, Floor Mats, Cargo Liners, Side Window Deflectors and More. You can check out their store if you want your mats asap. Thats what i did, they are located in Hamilton.
I visited their website. It appears they only do business online.
