Great inexpensive alternative to expensive custom cargo liners
on July 23, 2009
I have a fold down third row in my car and I wanted something that would be easy to move if I needed to use the third row. I also wanted something waterproof and easy to clean (think sandy beach toys, dirty sports equipment, shedding dog, etc)
This liner is perfect. If I need to use the third row I just roll up the liner and it fits behind the seats (not a possibility with a rubber liner). There are fixed velcro strips on one side of the liner which I actually stick to the back of the second row to create a lip to keep any dirt on the liner.
There are additional velcro strips included that you can attach to any part of the liner to make sure it stays in place. I havent used them. I like the fact that the edge closest to the hatch isnt attached to the floor so I can easily flip it up and access my SUV's storage compartment under the cargo area.
I do wonder if over time the velcro will start to pull/fray the material on the cargo floor/seat back if it is attached/removed many times but I'd much prefer that type of wear to stains, water damage and rips that might occur not using anything.
When you need to clean it, pull it out and shake it off. The material reminds me of a windbreaker-nothing seems to stick to it. It's very easy to wipe down.
I highly recommend it.
It has also come in handy many times that I've arrived at a little league game and realized I forgot a chair and the ground is wet. It's the perfect waterproof picnic blanket!
