I recently purchasd a 2014 Chevrlet Trax and the frist thing I ordered was the Weathertech front and rear mats and the cargo mat. These things are really nice and will offer WAY more protection to your carpet than the oem mats. I like them and they look great. The only issue I have so far is the driver's side does slip but I am going to get some velcro and put it on the bottom of the mat and that should do the trick. These are expensive but in my honest opinion well worth the money.
I don't work for weathertech just wanted to share my opinion with my fellow Trax owner's out there. I like that the back one goes right over the center of the carpet. I put my oem mats in the box that my weathertech mats came into to save them. They are very expensvie to replace with oem mats and maybe when I sell the car someone may ask for them lol. My TRax came with a rear cargo mat but it's cheap and not very protective in my opinion compared to the Weathertech one. Good luck with your Trax as I am loving mine!

Weathertech is one of those companies that is almost the only option in its market since it is just such good quality. I don't think I've ever heard bad reviews for them. Are there even other options?

But if you're very particular about how your interior looks and if it's a color other than black, the color of the mat may not be close to the plastics on your interior, something to keep in a mind, a small issue.

Yea there isn't a ton of selection. It's basically one size fits all. I think that the point of the mat is more function than aesthetics. You buy it because it works well instead of because it looks nice. Though it doesn't look that bad

One size fit's all for what?

I just mean that there is basically one style. The black plastic mat. Its not like there is a whole bunch of different designs that you can choose from.

Did anyone end up NOT going with a higher end mat like these weather tech's and end up going for something else instead?
I hope they haven't.
Universal mats that you find at walmart, autozone, etc aren't all that great. After some experience with them on previous vehicles i have learned to avoid them.

I bought set of fronts and rear custom fit Novaline mats from a Michigan seller off amazon.ca . They fit perfectly and are deep enough to meet the plastic door opening trim. Total cost delivered to Canada was $200 cdn, took only 3 days. I posted pictures on another forum, traxownersforum.com

Worth the money for sure and cheaper than the weathertech mats

I just got a complete set of Maxliners today. Every other car I've owned I've ordered Weathertech's, but I was able to get the Maxliner's on sale at AutoAnything for $204.00 with a Maxliner 15% off coupon. The $86 difference between the two was too big to ignore for me.

My first impression is that the Maxliners seem very similar to Weathertech. You only get black as a color option right now, but I was surprised at how close the quality seems.

I bought the OEM all weather rubber mats. Look and fit well with "trax" molded on the mat. Not as much coverage protection as the weathertech, though. Lots of carpet remains exposed.

On the plus side those OEM mats force good habits if you don't want to the mess to go anywhere but on the mat, still, always nice to have mats that cover up as much as possible.

I've never really considered anything other than weather tech. They just seem to be the standard for good quality and reliability. Almost the time of year where the intense floor mats don't matter so much any more. Yay summer.

They're good if what the dealer provides isn't good enough for your needs.
