If you get snow or water in them how do you lift them out without spilling everything ?
How much do they cost ?

Thanks! It's just too bad they only have mats for the front, with winter coming up I know people are going too want something for the middle row.

On amazon I see WeatherTech has them listed for $110 + $17 for shipping, but I think amazon prime members might get shipping for free. Even with shipping charges it seems like a great price to me. Plus they come in 3 different colors:
As for cleaning up the mess, it shouldn't be too bad to begin with as it is wise to knock your shoes/boots together, just outside before stepping into your vehicle to reduce the mess. When hauling out the mats, you just need to angle it properly to hold the mess in.

If it's bad enough that you think you'll spill the mess in your MKC while hauling out the mats, just stop by some gas station or coin car wash and use their wet/dry vacuum to clean up what ever you can. Then take it a step further by using a power washer at a coin car wash to clean them.

The standard floor mats I ordered with my MKC do not have edges on them to contain and spills or water, that is why I ordered the WeatherTec as I was tired of the older mats having a lip that was to low to contain any amount of snow and/or water that they get on them.

I ordered floor mats as part of my MKC order.

Do I still need Weather Tech mats?
It's up to you, but weathertech mats are designed to cover up the whole foot well area, holding in all the mess and making clean up a breeze. Meanwhile mats you get from the dealership look great but don't do that great of a job. If they're carpeted mats, you'll want to keep them for warmer weather, do not use them in winter.

This is the problem I was having. The typical rubber mats you find are for the most part, flat. I would push them further up the foot well to do a better job of covering the foot well area but it only helped so much... might as well make a one time investment in something that will go a long way in making things much easier.

On another note, I know carpet hates salt, and where I live they salt the roads, parking lots, and properties generously.

Got my Weathertechs today.

Ordered Weathertech liners through their website. Received them today by FedEx. Took less than a week. They fit well and should protect the floor from snow and salt during the NE winter.They are stupid expensive. I paid $127.95! I think that's what I paid for my first car.

Or you can get them From a Ford Dealer they are the same as the Escape mats.
And darn close in size to the Ford C-Max Hybrid digital mats. We ordered 2 sets 2 years ago for the C-Max in error. So we tried the brand new C-Max digital mats in the MKC and they fit fine. We did order the digital rear liner and it is due to arrive Monday.

I just installed my front, rear, and cargo mats. The fit is great except for the cargo area, in gets mashed up in the tail gate. I bought the gray mats for the black carpet, as the all black was just too dark for me. Gray and black combo looks great!

Post some pic when you have time. I have the hazelnut interior and really wanted brown mats to match. No one has them, only black, grey, or tan. I ended up with a brand of all weathers not as protective as weather techs/huskys. They come in like 25 different colors. Unfortunately they have a fade mark already where my foot rests like the paint/dye wore off so nothing I would recommend.

I have the full DigiFit set. I will have to check the back, but I don't think I have had any problems with the tailgate closing or that piece not fitting properly.

Hey everyone! My wife has a 2014 MKZ and, due to the fact that the MKZ body style has been around for a while, she was able to find great, all-weather floor mats made by Husky. They look very good, fit well and still look new 17 months later. When I bought my MKC in July of 2014, WeatherTech (my favorite at the time) didn't have anything for me, nor did Husky. Eventually WeatherTech released the front mats and ultimately, the rears too. The front mats are great but the rear mats are NOT! They are typical "digifit" and fit like the proverbial glove but the rear mats started collapsing inward and continue to do so with big gaps. I contacted WeatherTech and was told that was the design and nothing was wrong with them. Regardless, I told them I wasn't happy with the very thin shell design that is obviously the problem. In fact, I remember when I received them, I was surprised at how light the package was.
To boil it down, WeatherTech says there is nothing wrong with the design and they are what they are. Husky now has all MKC mats/liners and I am ordering the rears only if possible. Just a heads-up and my 2 cents worth!

Don't knock Husky until you try it. I always used to buy WeatherTech until I got my Mustang. Mustang owners on the forum I frequented steered me to Husky instead b/c the Huskys covered more than the WeatherTechs. I ended up getting them for my wife's 2015 Yukon XL and can't imagine how wrecked her interior would be without them, given our 3 kids.

I'm really not sure if I want them in the Lincoln, though. I love the look of the stock mats. And as my carpet is the brown, it doesn't show up that much, anyway...

I looked at my WeatherTechs again tonight. No issues with my rear area. Also the mats in the rear seating area have firm sidewalls, no drooping or bending. They seem stiff and thick if that makes sense.

I see it as a ford vs. chevy... Husky vs. WeatherTech... they are soooo very similar... you'r not going to make a mistake buying either one. Frankly I don't care if they last 10 years... I don't EVER keep vehicles much longer than two or three.

For me and I know this is a really stupid reason... I just don't like the brand name "Husky"... the name reminds me of cheap knock off tools, or the Levi "want to be" jeans you buy at Farm and Fleet that I had to wear as a kid ;) The WeatherTech brand name does not cause me to remember traumatic childhood teasing! LOL
