Husky Liners

    I just wanted to post my satisfaction with my set of Husky Liner floor liners. I bought WeatherTech floor liners for my '12 Focus and there's no doubt they are a bit better quality, but WeatherTech doesn't make a full front and rear set (or at least didn't a month ago) for the FiST. The WT mats also have nice molded sockets that snap onto the factory carpet studs on the driver's side where the Husky units just have pockets that look more like clearance for the studs. Still, I like the coverage of the Husky liners much more than the WT. The WT liners are much too short on the front edge and still allow a ton of snow and crud to fall off the pedals onto the carpet and up under the liner ... silly. The Husky liners go way up behind the pedals and completely cover the dead pedal too. Yes, they are hard, a bit slippery, and noisier than carpet or rubber mats, but in my opinion if you drive where there's real winter you need to have these floor liners.

    The rear mat is one piece which doesn't play well with the added rear seat cup holder in the FiST. I cut it in half along the tunnel and tucked each half up under the cup holder. You can't even tell.

    thanks for the heads up. was just about to make the jump on one or the other and was unsure as I've had both before. The Wt are definitely nicer texture and thicker. My huskies I've bought held up just fine on my Focus ST and cover more. I think the only thing that would sway me were if the Wt had a better back seat design.

    Yeah when I bought mine WT didn't have a rear mat available at all. Not sure about now.

    Good post. I also bought the Husky liners and was wondering what to do about the rear liner covering the cupholder even though I rarely have rear seat passengers. My other concern with the rears is that they don't seem to be quite wide enough to fill the pockets. Cutting them in half might just help with that problem as well. I'm not sure why I never bought liners in the past since I have certainly wrecked my share of carpet mats with salt and wear.

    Mine were a little deformed from the shipping box. I used a heat gun to flatten the sides anyplace the liner was not touching the carpet. I did this on the driveway ... not inside the car ... for a couple reasons. First I didn't want to risk melting the carpet, and second you have to overbend things because they spring back a little.

    Here is a pic of the rear mat after cutting it in half and tucking under the cup holder.

    Nice job. Maybe when it gets a bit warmer out I'll try that.

    Did you just get generic mats? or does Husky offer a custom fitted option?

    This is a custom fit set listed for the 2011 Fiesta I believe. Fits perfectly except for dealing with the ST-specific rear cup holder. Not sure if the Titanium has a similar cup holder, but working around it was easy and the result pretty seamless.

    I don't suppose you could post some picture of your floor mats and how well they may fit, as well as a link to where I could order some for myself.

    I'm getting my car in about 2 weeks, and I'd like to have some floor mats for day 1. (It'll be Feb, when I get it, then very soon spring, which means slushy mushy disgusting mucky snowy water inside my car. NO THANK YOU!)

    Oh that's awesome!

    Thanks for all the dirty pix ;)

    One last question. Do you find they move around at all? Or are they very secure in place?

    They fit the footwell very closely. I have not noticed any moving at all. They also have a lot of pointy nubs on the bottom to hold them in place. A note on the rear fitment: along with cutting the rear mat in half I also trimmed the nubs off with a razor blade on the area that goes over the tunnel so the halves would slide under the cup holder.

    Looks like better coverage than the weathertech ones up front. Thanks for the post.

    Yeah the coverage is the main reason I went with these.
