amazing product. perfect for active lifestyle of Washington hikers
Just received my order for my 2017 Lincoln Navigator L few days ago and already put it to the test.. For awhile, I was using a different brand but well known one that is the mascot of UW. I liked it but it was in truth, somewhat flimsy, and felt like it was too "plasticky" and might shatter like hard plastic.
I finally had to replace those because it was not getting the debris out of the vehicle. My family, like your typical Pacific NW family, likes to hike a lot, we have an active bird dog that gets muddy, and an even more active 3 year old delinquent that spills his milk and snacks all over.
What I can say about the Smartliner material is
1. the material is a lot thicker
2. thick but more pliable, in that, if you bend it, it won't break but retains shape. This is great for easily moving it, and lifting it to wipe/vacuum/clean/sweep debris on the floor.
3. washing and maintenance has been a breeze. whereas my previous floor liner had deeper grooves and more slits, it also meant retaining more gunk on the floor. anytime i had to clean those liners, it was sort of a pain. Smartliner's two ways I've cleaned it so far: a) vacuum it, wipe with damp cloth and light-mild cleaning spray B) take it off, I put some mild detergent soap, spray it with a hose and it's done.
4. definitely more of a "to fit specification" that my previous one, and it sticks to the floor rather than move around. This was probably my biggest complaint with my other floor mat was how easily it would move around.
Here's my tip when receiving it, and the installation instructions also say it: take it out and let it "rest" at room temp so it comes back to its pre-shipped form. As I was in a rush, i didn't do this, but i did MacGuyver it, by blasting my heat to ventilate the bottom area and put it on highest heat and full blast. It fortunately worked.
Anyways, I recommend this product to anyone out there. I'm so satisfied, I'm buying another one for my 2015 ford Escape.

To verify the part number you received look at the back of the floor mat. The part number is on a white sticker and always starts with A, B, C, D, or E. Examples: A0047, B0048, C0038, D0070, or E0364
Remove any original floor mats that came with your vehicle prior to installation of your new floor mats.
The factory retention hooks/posts that come with your vehicle are to be used to secure the floor mats in place. Some floor mats just have a raised dome on the floor mat instead of a hook ring, post cap, or twist lock. This universal dome bubble lays over the factory retention hook/post and no hole is required.
After unpacking your SMARTLINER floor mats or cargo/trunk liner the edges of the mat may be curled or bent from the boxing and shipping. This is normal, and our liners are made to reform to their original shape within 48 hours of placing the mat in the vehicle. To help the liners reform their original shape faster you can lay the mat out in the warm sun or in a warm area for 15-30 minutes and the liner will relax and regain its shape.
Your SMARTLINER mats require minimal care, but certain activities should be avoided to increase the usable life of the product.
After unpacking the liners and allowing them to reform to their original shape it is not recommended to fold or bend the item for storing as this can cause permanent creases.
Do not allow water/liquid to become trapped under the SMARTLINER floor mats. When cleaning your floor/carpet of your vehicle please ensure it is completely dry before placing the mat back in your vehicle. Our liners are waterproof; therefore, if any moisture/liquid becomes trapped under the mat it will not dry and the mat should be removed as soon as possible until the floor is completely dry. Prolonged exposure to moisture/liquid under the mats may cause mold/mildew and damage to your vehicle.
For first row/front row floor mat installation please move each pedal through its respective full range of motion to be sure that there is no interference with the liner. If there is any interference, remove the SMARTLINER before driving. Contact us if the interference is not resolved by the liner relaxing to its proper shape or any other installation issues.
All liners are made to work with the factory options on your vehicle. If you have any issues with install or other features of the liners, please contact our friendly customer service and we will be happy to help resolve your issue.
Do not clean with chemicals or solvent cleaner. Any abrasive cleaner can damage the surface of the mat.
Do not clean with any substance or product other than water and a damp sponge or cloth. If you have a sticky or greasy spill you may use a mild soap (such as dish soap or water with a damp sponge or cloth).
Do not use any other household cleaners such as, but no limited to, window cleaners, floor cleaners, polishes, or all-purpose cleaners.
