    Does anyone else have this problem? The passenger floor mat keeps flopping over. While I'm on it, the driver's side keeps slipping and I have to adjust it every time I get in. I think I need some floor mat viagra!!!

    Yes, worst.floor.mats.ever, I'm waiting for the Tesla contracted "WeatherTech" All-Season rubber mats to show up in the Tesla online store, been waiting since my Model S was delivered on 1/17/2013. I did get the trunk and frunk all weather mats already.
    P.S. no amount of Cialis or Viagra can fix these limp noodles :)

    All you have to do is accelerate briskly in a P85 and the stock mats will do that... :)

    I agree they are not very good; but you apparently have not been treated to the sight of the original Roadster mats. Ugh.

    I've been exceptionally happy with my Lloyd's Luxe mats in the Roadster. I have Ultimat in the Model S; those are fine but the only issue is that they tend to slip forward a bit. It came with carpet anchors, but I don't like those. I tried one-sided velcro, but it doesn't stick to the carpet enough. Gonna need double-sided velcro.

    Yes, mine do that exact thing. The driver floormat is useless as well and keeps sliding around when I put foot pressure on it during entry. They are abosultely horrible.

    I bought Tesla's premium mats. No issues at all.

    I have those too and they are very nice. The people who have the Lloyd's mats like them as well. The included mats are really not a serious offering. Hoping they improve on them.

    Mine do the same thing. I've given up on them... It still bothers me that on a 100k car there are no rear floor mats.

    Yes, as soon as it got warm my passenger mat curled over. But not the driver's mat. And none of the other folks at the PDX Tesla get-together this weekend had it, so I think it's not happening to all of them.

    I cured the problem by buying different floor mats.

    Cocomats!

    Nice and heavy...never have this problem.

    The Tesla stock floor mats are complete garbage.

    I fixed this easily--mentioned it to Service and they fixed it when I brought the car in to get the full hood armor. I don't know how they fixed it (velcro? staples? nails? glue? magic?) and don't care--it's fine now. So I recommend (for those near a Service Center) making an appointment, or if you're going in for some other reason, get it fixed then.

    But yes, it's silly that something like this needs a "fix." :rolleyes:

    I was at the service center and asked them about it. They told me that it is a common problem and Tesla is working on a new design. I asked them to fix it with velcro or something, and they said they could not fix it. They also made no mention if the new design would be given to any earlier adopters.

    Another big thumbs up for Lloyd Mats.
    They stay in place, even without using the attachment 'screws' that go down into the carpet - I couldn't envision puncturing the carpets, but it doesn't need it IMHO.

    Agreed. I have the tan interior so I got the black cocomats with natural dots both front and rear mats...and they look great. Highly recommend!

    My car came new with only front driver and passenger mats. My last service appointment they gave me a set of new mats with two front mats and the second row mat. The new driver mat doesn't have velco like the old one. The new passenger mat still flips over ever time I floor it. Now I have lots of mats but feel like I need better ones for the front.

    I am at the service center right now getting my steering wheel column click fixed, P85 logo applied, P85 spoiler applied (yey! they do not have any "matte" spoilers, only "glossy" spoilers here! looks MUCH better on a black car than the matte), tires getting rotated (at 6k miles now), and "new floor mats" installed. Apparently they removed the premium floor mats from the Tesla store, (I called ownership to inquire), and they are no longer "made" either. Instead, they told me to contact my local service center for new mats. What they did was make completely new floor mats, close to the quality of the previous premium ones, and shipped them out to all the service centers. They are putting them in all the new cars. They have them in stock, and they are throwing out the floppy erectile dysfunction mats from the old cars and putting the new floor mats in for free. Elon lived up to his word that we all can get these new mats! yey!

    +1 I confirmed this, I am going in for a tire rotation next Wednesday, they said they will install the new front mats, and there is also a rear passenger mat as well now they will add.
