I got the OEM floor mats and folding cargo tray from Bernardi. I'm happy

I had a cargo cover (the "window shade") for my Pilot. I almost never used it and it only got in the way if I had to fold the seats down to carry something big. It also rattled a bit in either position. Annoying. So, it spent most of its life in the corner of my garage. Unless you know you want it, I would suggest, don't bother.

My Maxpider mats are in transit from the factory overseas. They should hit the market, by early summer is my guess.

In the mean time, I got the cargo liner prototype fitted on Friday. Here it is. The side pieces can be detached. It's pretty cushy to sit on. I'm happy with it.

Is it a thing, though, that after going through a full-service car wash the attendants never re-lock the mats and you have to do it yourself?
I'd rather they didn't even try. Knuckle-dragging animals are more likely to break something they don't understand.

I don't have black seats with Tuxmat but with red (pics below). Have Weathertech on 16' RDX and it's OK. Good front but bad rear. Weathertech rear mat is thin so it curled up less than a year. To be fair, I live in hot TX.

I like Tuxmat so far, it fits really well and like the additional clip accessories to hold things down (I didn't really need the clips, but used it anyway for assurance). Rear mat is far superior than weathertech, it covers more and tucks under rear seat nicely.
Summer is coming up, so we'll see how Tuxmax handles hot TX heat.

I have been using tuxmats for past 6 months and really like them. Easy to clean and look good. I have received compliments on how great they look. They are also holding up pretty well.

They cover much more than the OEM all weather mats and the Weathertech mats. I like the fact that they cover the carpet up to the side sills and there is even a little bit of coverage below the seat controls. I didn't install any of the extra clips or velcro pieces included with the mats, but they fit snugly. My order included the rear mats, but kept them in the box for now.






So, why do TuxMat not use the RDX clips?

There's only 1 floor clip on Tuxmat to hold the driver side mat down. I don't think it's needed but it's probably there for safety I assume... ensuring no accidental mat slip to hinder pedal operation in case.

There are no floor clips on front passenger nor rear mats because it just fits really snug, no room for play. I suppose they could have put similar OEM clip for front passenger, but I assume they didn't for: 1) keep cost down, 2) less area where liquid can seep thru or 3) simply don't need it (I will say don't know for sure, these are just my guesses)

I used Tuxmat provided side clips to additionally secure corners or exposed sides where it can cause separation from floor. Tuxmat also provide velcro tapes in addition to generous amount of side clips I mentioned(pic), but I didn't use any velcro.for my application. Maybe after summer, we'll see it fairs.

Indeed!

I have Subaru All-Weather Mats in my wife's 2016 Legacy and Acura All-Weather Mats in my 2019 RDX.

Looks like I'm buying a few TuxMat sets ...

Try Tuxmats

I did get the OEM mats but their coverage is very poor if you live in a climate with snow, sleet and salt. Got the Tuxmats, complete coverage, perfect fit. Sorry I got the OEM's because now I have to take time and sell them.

They arenít worth anything so just save for when you sell the car.

I went with TuxMat per someone's recommendation on here and couldn't be more pleased with them. The coverage is superior and the price was very good. I am keeping the back seat mat in year-round for muddy camping trips.

I just ordered the Tux's. If you look at Amazon, they are cheaper than Tux's website. I reached out to Tux...said the prices on their website are in Canadien dollars, and Amazon in US dollars. Ebay (direct from Tux) is even a little cheaper than Amazon

I see they have them listed for $135.95.
They don't specify which mats are included. I assume that it includes 2 front and 2 back. Correct?

I got the full set from Bernardi for less. They came the very next day. I couldn't believe that. As I recall, they charged about $30 for shipping everything but no tax.

The WeatherTechs might have more coverage but they're way more expensive. Also, the WeatherTech cargo tray doesn't appear to fold. So, I got the OEMs so that everything matches. They look nice and they do the job.

The Tux mats above have a lot more coverage but I don't care for the look.

That is correct. I bought them. Two front and one back (covers both sides). No shipping cost. Took about a week to come in. So far happy with it.

Just wondering before I buy them, I tend to wear a hole in the carpeted floor mats with the edge of my gas pedal foot.
Are the Tuxmats thick enough to prevent that? Or am I better off going with the OEM mats?

Thanks!

When you say "edge of my gas pedal foot", I'm assuming your right heel? Tuxmat has rectangular rubber piece embedded where your right foot heel would normally rest (see pic). It's not super thick, but I think it's there for that purpose.
I only had Tuxmat for very short time, so I can't vouch for their long-term quality though.

Tuxmats seems pretty expensive, I see them listed for ~$200+ on amazon.

Right, tuxmat is definitely the most expensive as compared to OEM or weathertech. It's cheaper to buy it thru amazon if you have prime than tuxmat direct.

I like weathertech, but only for fronts, rear mats didn't last a year in TX heat (2016 RDX pics below). It curled up and looks very sloppy. Same thing happened for cargo mats by weathertech, edges curled within a year.
Having said that, I can't speak for 2019 version of weathertech, I hope they improved.

Can't you send them back for warranty replacement?

Those are WeatherTech?!! (I don't see the logo.) They look terrible. Are the rear made differently than the front? No way you can have curling up like that anywhere near the peddles.

Yes, unfortunately those are rear weathertech mats for 2016 RDX.
Front driver and front passenger mats are made of different material, more plastic as compared to rear. As I mentioned, I like front weathertech mats, they hold shape and looks good.
Rear mat is thinner and more flexible than the front, more rubbery material. Weathertech trunk cargo mat is similar to rear mat, so it also curled up on edges.

Again, I want to reiterate that my weathertech experience is with 2016 RDX mats, so I'm hoping they've made improvements since. I also used weathertech mats on 04 TSX and 06 TL, and they worked just fine.

To weathertech's defense, picture for 2019 RDX rear mats appear to show shallower edge, so maybe they did make improvements.


Here's RDX 2016 front mats and cargo matnote front edge curled up)

Wow. WeatherTechs do tend to curl at the edges as they age, but I have had sets go 10+ years without looking anywhere near that bad. Mine have always been black, even with beige interior; dunno if that makes a difference.

Is there a rear seat passenger that likes to crank the floor heat? ( Does it get cold enough in TX to run the heat? )

Tuxmats arrived today!






They were packaged pretty well, and arrived undamaged.

I installed according to the instructions: Drivers side, passenger side, then backseat. I installed the lock for the drivers side but it didn't really need it, as they fit snug as a bug.
Here are the pics after install.
The install took me all of 20 min.
I did not use any of the velcro strips they provided.
The only clips I used were on both sides of the back seat as you can see here:


Here are the rest of the pics:

If you try to do the cargo floor and mat once, and then again together, it wonít work.
So Iím very pleased at that because I was thinking I was going to have to lift the OEM mat out to get to the 2nd under floor compartment.

As for the quality... itís definitely more plastic than rubber like, and thereís of course no raised lip. On the positive side, it probably wonít catch up and curl up as much over time like weathertech and the like.

Iím waiting for 3Dmaxpider mats for the front and rear though, because Iím disappointed in pics of the OEM and Weathertech rear seats. Neither look like they go side to side and leave a gap, which is going to catch nearly every time by someone getting in the car and curl up quick.
If maxpider goes end to end, theyíll be winners for me.
UPDATE: Just received and installed my Maxpiders! With that said, I think it's safe to say you can look for them on-sale soon. It's dark, so I don't have pictures at the moment.

From where did you order them? I've checked 3d-liners.com, ebay, Amazon, etc and don't see any for the 2019 RDX. Thanks.
