    My mats are getting too old and dirty looking. I'd like to get a set of comfortable mats. I got OEM for my HiHy and they are super soft and comfortable. My Prius mats are very hard and keep sliding under my fit. What do you guys use? I've seen some OEM mats on ebay cheap. Should I get them or there are some good alternatives?

    Just make sure your dealer does not remove them if they do the gas pedal shaving/floor mat recall nonsense.

    Personally, I like the Weathertech all weather mats. Have them in both my 09 Pri and 04 CRV. The ones in the CRV are going on 8 years old and look almost as good as new.

    We replaced ours with a set of Lloyd mats:

    CAR MATS by LLOYD MATS

    In the Prius I put in the "Ultimats" which are much better quality than the OEM mats, and on my old Lexus I had the "Luxe" mats which also are called "Heavyweight" elsewhere. They are VERY plush, almost sheepskin like. Now that winter is over I plan to order a set of them for the new Lexus...

    I posted pictures of the Ultimats in the Prius on here at some point...chose a darker brown color that contrasts well.

    I agree. The Weathertech mats will outlast the vehicle. Plus, they are molded to fit, and do not move.

    I like the Weathertech mats for winter, but I like the carpet mats for feel...

    That's done only with your consent and I believe that recall is a total BS. I'm perfectly happy with my gas pedal.

    That's the idea. I like the comfort of a carpet mat and never used the all-weather mats. In addition, there is rarely a bad weather in Houston aside from an occasional flood or a rare hurricane.

    My pedal was shaved with absolutely no consent from me.
