Driving Tips - Vehicle Safety Checklist - Floor Mats

Proper size and correct installation

Improperly installed floor mats in your vehicle may interfere with the operation of the accelerator or brake pedal, increasing the risk of a crash.

  • Remove old floor mats before the installation of new mats; never stack mats.
  • Use mats that are the correct size and fit for your vehicle.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for mat installation. Use available retention clips to secure the mat and prevent it from sliding forward.
  • Every time the mats are removed for any reason, verify that the driver’s mat is reinstalled correctly.
