Add me to the list those who are completely dissatisfied with the floor mats. At 6500 miles and 16 months, the driver side floor mat is almost completely worn through at the point where my heel sits in line with the gas pedal. This is a design defect, and should be remedied at no cost by Honda. I am not a fan of rubber or smooth plastic floor mats, and have never had them in 55 years of driving. The stock floor mats in my 1999 Accord held up for 17 years; the driver's floor mat in the Accord showed wear, but had not yet worn all the way through.I understand that floor mats aren't generally a deciding factor when purchasing a car, but as a new car owner, shouldn't we all expect the mats to last longer than 800 miles? I already purchased and installed some Weathertech mats and won't need front OEM mats, but that's not really my point as a consumer. The OEM mats are already worn down to the bottom of the mat after just a month! I've had older Honda OEM mats that lasted for years and other than looking somewhat dirty, they held up a heck of a lot better than these napkin-thin garbage mats that are in the Civic.
For those of you that keep the OEM mats in your car, have you had issues like this as well?
I attached a couple of photos of these mats that I took at just under 800 miles on my car. A friend of mine that was in my car thought that I had kept my mats from my previous car because these looked like garbage.
