    I have a 2009 arriving in a week or so... Based on how quickly I destroyed my 2007's front carpet floor mats, I figured I should get some all-weather mats. WeatherTech sells 2 types of floor mats now. The "All-Weather" mats seem pretty much identical to the Toyota OEM all-weather mats, and are the same price. The FloorLiner DigitalFit mats also look very nice, but are almost twice the price. Are they really as form-fitting as they claim?

    What should I buy? WeatherTech All-Weather, WeatherTech FloorLiner, or standard Toyota All-Weather?

    My 2009 arrived today! I'm leaning toward the OEM all-weather mats, as while Reno gets some snow, it doesn't get a lot, so the mats won't have to hold a lot of liquid.

    Suggestions?

    Nobody must care about the exciting world of floor mats :)

    I ended up getting the OEM all-weather mats from Reno Toyota. They had them in stock, and with tax, it was only a few dollars more than online + shipping.

    I have to say, the all-weather mats have been my one disappointment with the Prius.

    I got a set when I bought mine in February 2007, and by Christmas my heel had gone right through the driver's side mat.

    I called the dealer, and they promptly replaced them -- no charge. But the second set is doing the same thing.

    These are not inexpensive -- $180 for a set -- and it's not like I'm driving around wearing golf shoes. They should last longer than a year. I plan to go back to the dealer again.

    I have a set of generic Walmart floor mats in my kids' car -- they've worn like iron and their on their third car.

    $180? Sorry, you got ripped off. They MSRP for $99, and I talked my dealer down from $120 to $95.

    Still, from searching I got alternating posts between "They're great! They last a lifetime!" and "They broke within a year", so I made sure to save the receipt in my file.
