Hi,

Does anybody have the plastic cargo mat accessory? How exactly does it work when all seats are up? Does it stay in the place, or do you need to remove it? Pics would be great, thanks.

Hello

The rear plastic mat come in 3 sections. You can remove the 3rd row seat section. Will try and get some photos later today.

When all three rows are up, you can stack the other two pieces on top of each other in the remaining cargo space. The downside to the plastic cargo mat is that the added weight from the mats on top of the flip up grocery holder compartment make the usability of the compartment difficult. The pop up basically won't stay up. Just yesterday, I decided to remove the other two portions of the mat and leave them in the garage, as I normally keep the third row up. It's a durable plastic, but not as thick as the optional rubber mats for the floors.

Thanks all. So bottom line is when the 3rd row is up, the mats fall off / need to stay off? ie, no velcro to hold on?

I am confused. What do you mean it fills up the grocery holder compartment?

Hello

Had to head out so got some photos.
1st one is all 3 mats in and 2nd shot with 2 removed and you can see the 3rd row seats.

Hope this helps

Not slippery. I don't think tacky but saves my rear cargo area from water stains. Will be good for the snow in winter and dive gear in summer. I will have some plastic boxes for these activities as well but took the extra precaution.

Thanks so much. so i can't have 1 up and down and still use a/the mat.
No.

So on the picture above you can see that the third row is covered by two separate smaller pieces. If you bring the 3rd row up, you need to remove them as they don't stick to the back of the seats. The only place to store them in the vehicle is to simply lay them on top of the larger piece that covers the actual storage compartment. If you do that, and if your model is equipped with the grocery bag holder compartment, the lid won't stay up due to the added weight of the mats.

My mats came with a rubber floor mats as a package called "protection package". It's not listed on Volvo's website when you do a build on their website, but your dealer can order it and give you the exact price.

Thanks for clarification.

They look thick and heavy... My current cargo mat from weathettech for my CRV is a hard thin plastic. Feels light. Can anybody speak to weight of these OEM ones? are they heavy? how do they compare to the weathertech? Ask, because my wife would remove the liner frequently for cleaning .

I was actually hoping it WAS slippery. I will regularly be using the vehicle to transport pinball machines. A somewhat slippery surface would make it easier to slide the games in and out.

Send me a pinball machine and I will test for you :)

I too have the protection package. I love it. The mats are extremely thin & light. And they have a tacky feel to them. At first they feel kind of flimsy. But once they are installed they are perfect. I like that they are tacky because you can set a box on top and not worry about it sliding around. The package comes with the floor mats for all the rows as well as a piece that covers the hump in the middle of the floor.

I never used weathertech stuff, so I can't compare. but I am thoroughly impressed by these. They are thin and lightweight, but strong. I recently transported a safe in it. The whole package must've been 300 lbs. the guys literally dropped it on top of mat, it was so heavy. And after I got home and removed the safe, there was not one dent or scratch.

Pinball machines, safes?! My hauls from Costco of 36 count toilet paper and a $5 pumpkin pies seem so mundane.

Are there floor mats for the third row?

Hello

I had to transport a 60kg item this morning in the car and the cargo mates were sticky. Probably better as the item did not slide around in the back when driving.

Maybe a thick blanket on top of the mats would help with getting the pinball machines in and out.

Hope that helps in the decision making.
