I have Lloyd carpet matts in my Vic and the Vette. I like them. They fit well and look good.

I bought my father-in-law Weathertech matts for Christmas. Unfortunately he hasn't installed them in his Toyota Venza yet.

My parents have Weathertech matts in their Acura TL. I think there are ok. The fit on these aren't as good as my Lloyd matts. I didn't order these so I'm not sure if they were custom or not.

They're carpet. They fit much better than the Ford matts that came with the car new. I bought them 5 years ago. The current price for a set of 4 is ~$125.00.

Yeah i have a set from Walmart and everything except the drivers side fit good. The driver side went too far up and would catch on to my gas pedal and it would get stuck floored(can you say Toyota?). So now i just use the factory drivers floor mat and aftermarkets ones for the rest of the car.

Also I called Ford to get factory floor mats only to be told that the manufacturer of Ford mats went bankrupt and there is no way to get factory floor mats any longer. What a bummer!!

I have a set of LL Bean carpet\all season floor mats over my factory mats, and for the winter I have a set of rubber deep channel mats. I don't know the brand but I got them at wal mart about 6yrs ago, and they've handled everything from my old truck that I 4wheeled (lots of mud and rocks) to daily driving in my old vic, and they still clean up nice

Just do the Toyota recall fix and punch a hole in the mat and use a zip tie to anchor it to the seat post. Yeah, it kinda looks cheap if you're the kind of person who notices things like that.

I use these http://autogeek.net/lloyrubexfit.html covers the whole floor and thin, very easy to clean too. The nice thing is that they cut them to your car.

I have a set of black all weather floor mats from wal mart. They fit well but slide around on the vinyl floor.

There's a seller on Ebay that sells OEM carpeting for pretty cheap or at least cheaper than from Ford. I bought a set a year or so ago. The thing I like is that the color matches exactly which means alot to me because I am OCD about those types of things. I think the seller's Ebay name is USAsupersale. The shipping was quick but just make sure you know the correct Ford name of your color interior.

I've got the black WeatherTech trunk liner and love it. It has come in handy many times when some liquid spilled back there. The quality is very good. You get what you pay for and they aren't cheap.

I've bought a number of floor mat sets from USASupersale, for both my Mercurys and my Fords. Gen-you-wine FoMoCo factory floor mats... at a decent price.

Be sure you read all the print on the seller's page, and cut them a little slack; Ford has had more than one supplier of floor mats, and colors might not match perfectly from one source to another. For example, there were several different shades of grey over the years: "Light Graphite," "Medium Graphite," "Medium Dark Graphite," "Opal," "Light Flint," "Medium Dark Flint," "Charcoal," and a few others, just to name a few variations of grey. There were also umpteen variations of other colors available...

I'd certainly recommend Super Sale to a friend...

I've experienced excellent performance (in my '07 P71) regarding Husky Liner floor mats since 2007. They have an elevated outer lip which collects water and debris. They are constructed of heavy duty flexible plastic and are easy to clean. I place the Husky Liners directly over the factory mats and then remove the Husky Liners during car shows.
