Well, the passenger side one is fine. But the drivers side, being both too thin and not very long, bunches up everytime i leave the car...ridiculous. I mean a large hump forms, right side in front of the twist latch as the right foot pivots to exit. if they were heavier, or longer no issue i suspect. First time i have ever experienced, and have had many sets of manufacturer rubber mats.

I think Toyota is gun shy after all the problems they had with mats. The new all weather mats are terrible (junk at best) when compared to their older ones. Even the material is flimsy and substandard to me. We got them for the wifes 2010 Prius and pulled them out within a week. Ordered the Weathertech digital fit ones and are much happier with the fit and protection Vs the Toyota winter mats.

I also was very disappointed with the CT200h rear cargo tray construction, again substandard to the Prius's one which surprised me seeing I would have thought it would have been of the same material and it wasn't. The one for the CT is thin and seems to be made out of reclaimed material where the Prius one was a thicker rubber with the car name (Prius) raised in a different color on the mat, as was my Highlander Hybrid's.

stumpie, are you from Canada or the US? When I just ordered my CT I asked about all-season mats and they told me they had not yet come out with them.

Thanks for the info, I too will wait for the WeatherTech ones to come out.

They ARE available in the US, several people have received them already and have even sent pictures if them on the forum. I find a lot of the dealers sales people and parts folks are the last to know.

With the reinforced eyelets in the Lexus all-weather floor mats and the locking hubs on the floor of the car, I'm trying to imagine how the driver's side mat can "bunch up" as you describe, unless, as you pivot your foot, your shoe is pulling the front of the mat backwards.

I have had these Lexus all-weather mats in my CT for a few weeks now and have never encountered a problem with the driver's side mat bunching up, possibly because my tendency is to push the front of the mat forward with my right foot as I exit the car. Seems to me that the two locking hubs would make it virtually impossible for the mat to bunch from any lateral (sideways) force without tearing the mat or breaking one of the hubs.

As for the mats' thickness, when I reinstall the driver's side mat after removing and hosing it off, the locking twist is snug when I turn it to lock the mat into place. If the mat was any thicker, it would be a real chore to lock the mat to the floor.

I have always replaced the OEM carpeted mats with all-weather mats in every car I have owned (too embarrassed to say how many over the past 50 years). And these Lexus OEM mats with their locking mechanisms that keep them in place like those in my '06 MDX are a godsend.

Each to their own, of course, but speaking for myself, I am very happy with the Lexus OEM all-weather floor mats and feel they were well worth the $89 I paid for the front and backseat set of four (see photos of the front mats below).

The all season floor mats I'm used to are like an inch thick, and NEVER move or bunch up cause they are just too thick to do so.

I'm surprised Lexus is selling thin floor mats for this purpose...

Stumpie, sorry that those mats aren't working for you. But like bilmat I haven't had any problems with the OEM all-weather mats. They work for me, too.

The weathertech seem like another good option. But I'm not a fan of the see-thru exactmats. They remind me too much of those "old school" clear vinyl runners that protect high traffic carpeted areas. Haha! Not my style, but like bilmat also said, to each his own. :)
