Mazda Floor Mats Buying Guide
What They Do
Like cargo accessories such as floor liners, they protect the floors of your car or SUV -- both their bare plastics and the upholstery -- from the effects of dirt, debris, and liquids. They also help simplify cleaning up those messes. The long-run benefit: less overall maintenance, and often, less money spent on it, too.
What They're Made of
All car mats are different, so materials can vary, whether dramatically or just slightly. Some, such as fabric or carpet for instance, are for everyday use in temperate weather and milder climates. Others, like vinyl or rubber, are designed ruggeder, capable of standing up to all sorts of conditions -- the spring mud, winter's snow and ice, you name it.
The Difference Between Materials
Carpeted fabric floor mats are more absorbent. They soak up dirt and water. Rubber or vinyl floor mats, however, are impermeable; neither can penetrate them. Because of this design, the latter -- especially many rubber floor mats, for example -- get called "all-weather."
Their Main Features
These also vary. Some, like raised edges, bevels, spikes, grooves, or caps, make cleaning mats a lot easier. Others, like retainers, nibs, clips, and anti-slip backing, help keep them from bunching up.
When to Replace Them
If they start ripping or crumpling. A tear can only get worse, and when one does, the mat on your driver's side, for instance, can lodge under your brake or throttle pedal, putting you and your passengers in serious danger.
If it's time for a change, be sure you order the genuine article.
Why Buy Genuine OEM Floor Mats
Mazda makes them for its models specifically, ensuring they'll fit yours -- a claim that aftermarket floor mats can't always make.
