Did you guys have any issues with standing water?

Besides the Taco, I also bought a set of fronts and rears for our Yaris, and they stuffed both sets into one box. So you can imagine how mangled they were when I got them.

Still after a while they relaxed and are just fine.

I didn't have any expectations of a perfect fit, and am happy that they laid down nicely and fit the locking posts on the driver's side floor.

My truck already came with the regular flat thick rubber Weathertechs, so I just put them inside the new ones.

Not really, but if you do, just carefully take them out, dump the water out and reinstall.

I grabbed some rubber matting from the local hardware store and covered up the hump where the rug covering the transmission is positioned and then placed the weathertech,s over top . Doesnt look pretty but the rug stays new . I live in the salt belt and adding the additonal rubber up the humps on either side work best for a nasty winter environment . To add , I also covered the entrance door sills with rubber matting . I found this was the only way to keep the snow out . The Weathertechs work awesome but for a harsh enviroment , I had to take an extra step of protection

I've had mine for six months and am very pleased. Not sure how they can move if the retention clips are engaged.

Isn't that the reason people were having issues with gas pedals getting stuck? Stacking mats. I thought I read that somewhere on here.

I just bought some black ones today from Amazon Prime. Got them with next-day delivery for what ground shipping through Weathertech would cost. I get pretty OCD about small things (ask my wife), but I'm sure the Colorado heat will eventually help them form to fit pretty snug, assuming the correct models are sent. I'd previously purchased Kraco/Remington all-weather mats from Walmart ($40 for front and back) for years, for all of our vehicles. They can only hold so much moisture before they overflow, and they obviously don't have the same coverage.

How are yours holding up?

I thought mine were cheap when I first got 'em. Now I'm happy. They are thin but rugged, & fit very well now that they sort of relaxed and spread.


OR

I decided they're awesome cause I dropped $80 on 'em. Either way I like em now, lol.

Not sure how your mats are moving around if you have them clipped in. I was a little surprised how thin they were when I got mine about a month ago but they are pretty rugged. Never had an issue with the mat itself moving around though. Sounds like your clips must be loose.

Exactly what I was thinking.

I just got a full set for my DCSB and they fit just fine.

Might have been more of an issue with carpet mats bunching up which the rubber mat doesn't do. When floored, the gas pedal already contacts the mat surface, and even if it were to creep up, it still only contacts the surface.

Got mine today. The passenger side is slightly "off," but I'm sure they'll form up after some hot days in the sun...

I've had mine for about 4 years now. My only gripe is that they could offer more protection for the left-side(footrest) area. Other than that, I have been very satisfied with mine.
