Floor Mats......Carpet or Rubber...or both,do you have with your vehicle....

My wife's Civic has rubber mats great with the winter months.....

My Accord came with carpeted mats but I use rubber mats also because of winter mostly.......

We have them molded to the floor of the car and truck they work out nice. No residue or salt marks on the carpeting. Less mess to clean up!:)

Floridaman2013 says "Usually most cars we purchase come with carpet mats, but we buy the rubber all season mats as they protect much better and easy to clean. "
