Yeah, I thought that was fairly outrageous, especially considering the mixed reviews I've seen on these mats. I suspect those complaints were based on the nearest match WeatherTech offered before they produced a "real" Prius cargo liner, but geez, the Toyota carpeted trunk mat lists for "only" $82.hyperion said:Seaside, I went to the website you posted and found they now offer the cargo mats in both tan and gray for ten dollars more than the black ($109.99) plus $18 I believe for shipping.
Bingo! I had come across the Carbox line at Mats4Less when I first began my search, saw the prices... and promptly forgot about them. I now realize they are quite competitive with other products of this type and they meet both of my requirements: 1) Matching mats for floor and cargo area (wife's car--everything must coordinate!) and 2) they must have grooves or lips to catch mud, rain, & slush. (We don't get much snow, but we do have very sloppy winters in Tidewater.)Roger V said:I suggest you try Mats4Less.com for a Cargobox liner. It is a good fit, and has a raised lip to contain water. Mine was $79.99 a few months ago, but more recently a friend got his for $10 off. I had tried several times to get one from Weathertech, but was told there wasn't enough market demand for them to make a custom one for the Prius.
If there is one virtue that all Prius owners must possess, it has to be patience! Actually, I lucked out by "finding" our exact car already on a dealer's lot, but I have no such high hopes for our upcoming purchase of Prius #2 (to complete the His & Hers set) :wink:Roger V said:Seaside,
The only negative, which I forgot to mention, was it takes a few weeks to get the one from Mats4Less, unless they are now stocking them.
Apparently, they are now stocking the Carbox Prius matts. I just received an email from Matts4Less with my UPS tracking number. Matts are in Richmond and will be delivered on Monday. I'll post my impressions on fit & finish after I install them and ride with them for a while.Roger V said:The only negative, which I forgot to mention, was it takes a few weeks to get the one from Mats4Less, unless they are now stocking them.
