    Wondering if my 2010 has the appropriate drivers side oem floor mat?
    The mounting holes don't match up with the tabs, one or the other doesn't belong there, can someone enlighten me?

    That looks like my 2012 mat, not my (long since traded in) 2010 mat.

    The older design used hooks that were hard to detach and remove for cleaning. The design changed in 2012 with much easier to use twist tabs on the floor, and different holes in the mat, apparently on much wider mounting centers.

    I'll guess that someone bought a replacement mat, and assumed that a 2012+ version is the same as the 2010-11 version. But it is not.

    Pretty sure @fuzzy1 scored a direct hit. It looks like the 2010-11 use the same kind of hook as the Gen 2. They are a bit of a pain compared to the newer ones on 2012 and above, but they are not interchangeable either.

    Thanks for the replies, definitely got different year mat, I'll keep my eye out for the correct ones that might pop up for sale.
