How to Install Honda Civic Floor Mats

As far as auto accessories go, floor mats are relatively easy to install in your Civic.

Here are the general steps:

  1. Always make sure the car carpet is clean before installing new floor mats. Otherwise, new floor mats will just grind dirt into the carpet when installed.
  2. Identify and lay out all of the relative pieces. Usually this includes two front floor mats (driver and passenger sides) and 1 to 3 rear floor mats depending on design.
  3. Connect the drivers side floor mat to the two anchors in the floor. Will need to push and lock the anchors. Press the rest of the mat down to ensure it is flat.
  4. Repeat Step 3 for the passenger side.
  5. Installation in the rear varies somewhat different depending on the number of pieces (e.g., one uni-body mat or separate left and right mats). Place the mat in position and press until firmly held against the carpet.

As always read the instructions first. There are often some product-specific quirks that require an extra step or two.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are the biggest complaints with floor-liner products?

Floor mats generally get good reviews because they are straightforward auto accessories with few moving parts. When we talk to customers and read reviews, the most common complaints we hear are:

  1. Fit is loose (most commonly for rear mats)
  2. Poor grip (mats don’t stay in place)
  3. Stiff material
  4. Thin material (not durable)
  5. Slick surface when wet
  6. Damaged in shipping.

The Honda floor mats we reviewed (vs. dozens the we considered) had few of the above problems.

What are the main things to consider when buying floor mats?

There are many factors, but the main ones are:

  • Brand. Good brands have good brands because they make good products
  • Price. Ultra-budget floor mats usually don’t last. Good quality can be found starting at around $60.
  • Warranty. Good floor mats last a long time so most drivers rarely need use their warranty. Better brands like Husky and Weathertech offer lifetime warranties for their products.
  • Fit. We are admittedly nerds for auto accessories. That said, investing in a custom fit products (mats, car covers, seat covers) almost always pays off in the long run. The additional protection for your interior carpet is worth it.

How do I clean floor mats?

All of the accessories reviewed in this article are very easy to clean. Remove the liners and spray with a water hose or pressure washer. Using a soft brush and mild soap, vigorously clean each mat for a few minutes. When finished use the hose/pressure washer to wash away all soap. Let liners dry completely before re-installing.

Note: when you wash your floor mats, that is always a good time to clean the interior carpet as well.

Is it worth spending a few extra dollars for a premium Honda Civic mat?

From our perspective, the answer is “yes.” Floor mats are about more than just the quality of the material. Fit plays a huge role as well. If mats get turned sideways, the interior carpet with not only get dirty, but your feet will like touch the carpet causing wear.

The best Honda Civic floor mats will keep your car cleaner, make it look better and preserve the resale value. They are great accessories.
