In the below thread, it appears that the WeatherTech liners to not fully cover the dead pedal / foot rest. This seems illogical to me and I was curious if the Husky liners had better coverage of this area. If someone has a picture they could post for comparison, I would really appreciate it!
I prefer the Husky Weatherbeater liners because the rear ends of it are higher than the Weathertech liners so in acceleration or when climbing a hill if you have a lot of salted water in your liners, it remains inside the liners instead of going out from it like it does with the Weathertech. When you take out the liners in spring, your carpet under the liners will be full of dried salt. Also, the Husky liners cover more the dead/rest pedal than the Weathertech and finally, Husky liners are cheaper !!! Yes the Weathertech may look nicer but for me they are less effective when come to protection which is habitually the main reason why you buy it. This is my opinion.
I just got my Husky Weatherbeater liners in yesterday evening, and they look and fit nicely. They are a bit shinier than the weathertechs that I have had in the past, but it's still a matte finish. The spikes on the bottom of the mats are a nice touch to keep the mats from moving, but they are very sharp and will pierce your skin if you are not careful. It does totally cover the dead pedal and fully covers the area behind the gas pedal.
The only thing is that it will probably take some time for the mats to relax back to its intended shape, since it comes kind of squished in the box. With it being relatively cold out (Michigan), it'll take even more time, so it may look like it doesn't fit in some spots, but my expectation is that it will eventually. The Husky liners don't have the lip that comes up and over the bottom of the door area, so debris can fall into that gap. I personally like that the lip isn't there because the illuminated Cadillac doorsill is still visible.
I'll try to remember to take some pictures this weekend so that you can see the fitment for yourself.
So far, I am happy with them. We'll see if that changes next spring when I go to clean under the mats.
I originally bought the weathertechs and switched them out for the Husky's. I have had the husky's for about 3 months now and they don't fit as well as the weathertechs especially because they don't snap into place. They have spikes on the bottom which still tend to slide out of place. They are ok. I wish Weathertech's would actually fit.
Well it's tough. I prefer the Weathertech's overall build quality and design but the retention system for the SRX just doesn't work with the Weathertech's. They will admit that themselves so I have had to settle for the Husky liners. If the weathertech's get fixed or are fixed don't even question it and get those but for now it is what it is.
