    Re: Floor mats

    I wasn't going to spend nearly $200 for these floor mats either.

    Then, a few days after picking up my new 2013 SRX, I had to drive friends to a party. Their street was full of mud (residue from the Sandy storm). The next day, there was mud all over my carpet -- this despite the fact that I had the deluxe floor mats which I negotiated with the dealer for. They are not much better than the OEM floormats.

    So, after spending a lot of time cleaning up the mud and shampooing the carpet, I went and ordered the Weathertech floor liners.

    I am picking up the same friends on Monday. At least this time, when they get mud all over the floor, I can simply take the floor liners out and spray them down. And, the extended coverage of protection they provide means no mud on the carpets.

    Re: Floor mats

    I ordered the digital mats from WeatherTech as well for my 2013 SRX. When I placed the order, there was not an option for the 2013, so I ordered the mats for the 2012. They fit perfect.

    I also had a difficult time with the fasteners for the driver mat. I took a considerable amount of force to push them into place, but when they seated I heard a distintive click.

    Make certain you lock the driver mat in place...I initially did not think they would snap in properly and thought the shape of the mat would hold them in place...WRONG!!! Driving one cold winter night with the heat on, I could feel a sponginess as I cancelled the cruise and stepped for the accelerator. The mat folded in front of the accelerator and was indeed a scary situation. When I arrived at home, I immediately felt around the fasteners and played with the position of the mat bearing down when squarely above the post. It snapped in place under considerable force, but now the mat is securely and safely in place.

    I hope this word of caution will prevent any sudden SRX acceleration incidents. The fault would clearly be that of the installer if the mats are not properly fastened as designed.

    Re: Floor mats

    Love the liners, just finding them rather impossible to remove from the front drivers side.

    They are so hard-fastned into the floor pins that I am afraid if I keep trying to pull on the Weather Liner to release them, I am going to rip the pins out of the floor.

    Re: Floor mats

    I have had Weathertec digifit liners on my 07 & 11 Tahoe LTZ's....just switched them from vehicle to vehicle. They are by far the best all weather mats out on the market. Just traded my 11' Tahoe LTZ on a left over 12' premium package AWD SRX for my wife. We pick it up tomorrow and my weathertec digi fit mats are already on order. mine does come with the all weather mats from the factory as an option but do not plan on using them. If anyone has an interest in the them let me know! Looking to learning more about our new SRX from this forum.

    Re: Floor mats

    2010 SRX owner with the 'shale' colored carpet. Anyone with this color have any pics? Bought mine at CarMax and they had a set of their famous $4 carpet mats in since the factory ones were MIA. I promptly replaced those with some generic all-weather mats from WalMart while I consider what to install. I've always gone with the factory Cadillac all weather mats in the past, but considering they only come in black (!?!?) and the coverage doesn't look to great, I'm re-considering. Also, for those with the tan colored Weathertec digitals....how are they with showing dirt. Noticed the drivers side all weather tan one I bought at Walmart looks pretty cruddy pretty fast....but then again my last SRX had the ebony interior so I guess I'm just not used to this light color. What is everyone going with for the cargo area?

    Re: Floor mats

    Does the Weather Tech Digital floor liner cover the flat raised area on the drivers side near the seat that is not covered by the OEM mats? Sorry I could not tell from the posted pictures.

    @!%# all that crap. 200 bucks plus for floor mats? Sams Club mats rule. 15-18 bucks and you are done.

    Re: Floor mats

    yes, they create a sort of 'pan' about an inch deep all around the floor well... The rear edge of the mat covers all the way up to the seat mount area, so in a usual driving position, the seat is covering the rear edge of the mat.

    Sorry this took so long. Pics for anyone interested in how the Weathertech mats (for 2010-2011 MYs) look in a 2012.

    Re: Floor mats

    Thanks for the pictures. Exactly what I was looking for. Once attached are they difficult to remove?

    Re: Floor mats

    The latest version of Weathertech mats for the 2013 are no longer difficult to fasten or remove. They changed the fastening system and now use velcro to hold them in place. They include fasteners that clamp onto the posts attached to the carpet and the mats have the loop side of the velcro in the raised area that lines up with the posts. They are very easy to install and remove.
