I've had online orders at two online dealers cancelled due to lack of availability. My local dealer says they have never gotten a single set. I'm not desperate enough to put in a cut-to-fit set - yet - but I really want to get some floor mats in this thing.

Thanks - I did indeed. I don't like the Custoarmor ones pictured, and Smartliner and WeatherTech only have first row and cargo area, nothing in-between - which is a whole lot of unprotected real estate (so much that I'm not sure why they bothered).

I'm surprised that your car didn't come with them. Seems like a standard offering from the factory.

They aren't. It's an accessory. Most are probably ordered with them, but they're not standard, and with supply chains being the way they are right now, "normal" isn't normal. I just heard back from one dealership who told me they think they can have them in 2-3 months.

I understand it's an accessory, but you'll likely find that most cars come equipped with them from the factory, and they're not special factory orders.

I finally ended up getting a set at my local dealer, who first swore up and down they did not have a set, then decided to "just have a look." They weren't sure how they got it, and they charged me about $35 over MSRP for them, but...I'll take it.

I also strongly recommend that you do not do business with Premier Kia, aka mykiaparts, because they are a bunch of lying clowns.

- I bought a set of floor mats from Premier Kia via eBay on 8/19. At the time, they showed as having 4 sets in stock. They charged my card and gave me a delivery date of "no later than" 9/3. 9/3 came and went. I contacted them on 9/6 or so, and got no response. I tried again two days later, and I got no response. I had to wait the week out, then I requested a cancellation through eBay. That finally got them to respond - and they then told me that they had "ordered from the distributor but they haven't come in yet." As noted above, they list the parts as in-stock and available to ship in the listing. I finally got a refund a few days later.

- I found a listing at mykiaparts.com, at first not aware that this was Premier Kia. I emailed them to ask if they had them in stock. I got a pretty quick response - "Yes, we have one set" - which I received at 6:39a yesterday. I placed my order at 7:13a. This morning at 7:16a I got an email telling me that my order had been cancelled. A few minutes later I got an email...telling me sorry, the part has been discontinued. Uhh...a current part? On a current car? Has been discontinued? With such haste that they CAME AND TOOK THE SET YOU HAD OUT OF YOUR WAREHOUSE? I responded at 7:19a: "How is this possible? I emailed you to ask you if you had it in stock, and I ordered about 30 minutes after you told me that you did." I got a response back at 7:49a: "corporate pulled the parts due to lack of sales." Uhhh, sure they did - a part that no dealer seems to be able to keep in stock, and is in short supply...was discontinued, with extreme prejudice, to such a degree that they...had to come and raid your warehouse for the one set you had.

They clearly never had the mats to sell, and they're completely full of garbage, so...I strongly recommend keeping your distance from Premier Kia / Mykiaparts.com.

Just bought a set of OEM all weather mats to replace the ones that came with the car. I bought them from the dealer - Lev Kia in Framingham, MA and they were $279 for all 3 rows for the 7 seats SXP version. We hit the ski slopes this weekend - my kids ski at all weather and if you have been following the weather forecast - they ended the day with a lot of mud snow and water and the mats are great so far. On the driver side they fit under the pedals and under the left foot rest (unlike weather tech that I believe goes over it). The second and third toe tuck well under each other seamlessly and all mats have raise edges to trap water
Here are some pics of all 3 rows:

I bought weather tech and have my old set available. Dealership charged me $200 and wouldn’t knock off price or keep them.

Hey I ordered the Weather tech ones but couldnt do the combo version. I ordered the first and second row separately and it fit perfect!
