When you’ve invested money in a new car, SUV or truck, one of the first casualties in the wear and tear that follows is the carpets. This can be easily remedied with a nice set of floor mats. These can prove hard to choose, however, when the marketplace is so crowded. With both universal and specific fits, different physical designs and materials, and different offerings on warranties and guarantees, how is a consumer meant to choose?
