I use to have WeatherTec floor mats when I owned my old Ford Edge. They were good but I found them to be rather flawed for the following reasons:
1. They didn't protect the sides at all. I live in Canada where there is snow and that means quite a bit of salt as it seems nobody wants to be accused of someone slipping ad falling. Sometimes you can get more salt on the ground than there ever was snow. So when you climb into your car the wet from the bottom of your shoes/boots will drip onto every surface. That means anything that is not covered will get wet. Wet with a salty concentration. If it really cold, then you bring the snow/salt and put it onto the car mat. But you heat your car up and then the snow melts and you end up with a pool of salty badness at the bottom of the mat. This will splash around and get on the sides as you move your feet.
2. They hook in very well, but sadly that makes taking them out to be a bit of a pain. Shouldn't really be a big deal except for the problem with they fill up really well. All fine but in the middle of winter, how do you empty them? You can't pull them out to dump them as you will spill all that salty badness all over the carpet inside that you took to much effort to protect.
3. They are very hard so they don't tend to conform very well to the inside of the car. They are laser fit so they shouldn't need to? Well, not after several years where they tend to start to bend or not conform as you can't glue them into place so they shift ever so slightly and then that makes one side or another not fit right.
I went with Tuxmats. They seem to fix more of what was wrong.
1. Very high sides.
2. Clips that hold the high sides in place so they don't fold inwards or out of alignment
3. Softer sides so they have the ability to shift and give a bit when the mat does eventually move
Sure they still have the issue of filling up and I have only concluded that its maybe best of let the car get cold overnight and then you can pick the chunks of frozen slush out of the bottom. (and tuxmat shape does allow for this) to get the main amount out every couple of weeks. Barring that, I invested in a Ridgid wet vac that has a lifetime warranty. What doesn't come out can be sucked out.
