Bought them last week for my '16 MKC:
The front pair, as expected fit beautifully, they designed them to FULLY contain water/moisture/melted snow. You really have to try hard to create a moisture mess with these front liners in place; 9 out of 10 !
2 row mats:
Fit and finish is quite good, they could have extended them further under the seats to accommodate wet shoes, in my opinion,you have to be quite aware where you place your feet, or you will have melted snow outside their coverage area; 8 out of 10 !
The cargo liner arrived completely deformed and would NOT, could NOT remove the spring like coil it had due to shipping stupidity...rather than box it and ship it flat, this arrived rolled up in a 5" X 5" x 3' box....how long it set in that rolled up position no one knows, but I added 2 windshield jugs on either side to weigh it down, had it in the house at room temps (75C) for two days, and also tried to relax the plastic it's made out of with my heat gun set on low.....nothing worked,I ended up returning it to the dealership for a full refund....at almost $140 bucks,the least they can do is package it in a flat carton.
The rolling up of this cargo liner also created more problems; it completely destroyed the holding edge and turned it into multiple ripples,an easy escape route for water to get out... VERY disappointed in it's handling.
I thought of asking for a replacement, but I figured they would just send another packaged in the same manner, ROLLED UP, so I opted for a full refund.
Now if this was manufactured in a rubber compound I can easily understand rolling it up,because the second it's out the box, it would lie flat, but the type of material they use, and it's ultra lightweight holds a coil permanently.
I went as far as writing a letter to customer support complaining about the method of packaging for the cargo mat; -1 out of a 10.... complete junk! If they offered this mat to me for a lousy $1.00...I would have declined it,that's how bad it really is!
In the mean time, I'm left with basic OEM carpeting in my cargo area so I have to figure out what other options are out there!
In defence of Weather Tech, I have had these mats in ALL my cars ( and I had plenty of cars over the years) and have never encountered an issue like this, EVER....They need to realize they cannot roll these mats up and stick them in a box and call that a day!!!!!!
Positives:
Lightweight and thin enough that they fit perfectly,impressive ability to contain water within them.Well extruded.

Negatives:
Above average price point, 2 front liners and 2nd row liner came to $294 Canadian, not exactly a cheap liner.
Retains full memory,if rolled up, you WILL have problems with getting to flatten down. When wet, it tends to be a lil slippery due to the material/inside finish used.

I will NEVER buy either Weatertech or Husky because I pretty much have never seen a pair that did NOT roll up or get out of shape and look terrible..not to mention leaving gaps where dirt/debris fall then you have a nice ring around the edge of the carpet of their supposed "digital fit". My friend owned a detail shop and we would see them come in like that all the time, they are only perfect until the plastic looses shape then it looks terrible. I buy regular weather mats (heavy rubber that lay flat) that have at least a lip or pattern to hold the water/snow/dirt. I'm just careful about getting in and out with dirty shoes and have no problems.

They are llyods mats I got from auto anything. They have multiple kind/patterns. They are exact fits matching my Lincoln ones. My only complaint is I bought brown colored ones to match my hazelnut interior and the coloring wore off some where my foot rests before the gas pedal. I also would have liked a back mat that went over the hump as my son insists on walking out the back over it uuugh! :)

They have awesome custom MKC carpeted ones that I was going to get for summer but $$$ and haven't wanted to invest much more in my MKC for obvious reasons....at the dealer again :-(

5.0 Candy REDCS, not sure what you're going to put in the cargo area in the winter that may be wet or have snow on it and what your needs are, but have you looked at the mat available from Lincoln? I'm not talking the "reversible" carpet-on-one-side/rubber-on-the-other mat from the factory, but there is an all plastic "tray" style mat made out of a hard flexible plastic that's designed for and measured to fit the cargo area, has the MKC logo, etc. available from the dealer or Lincoln Accessories. My dealer threw it in for me because I bought a model on the lot other than the one I had ordered and my ordered car was supposed to have the "reversible" mat. I'm actually happier with the "tray" style. It has a lip all the way around it and a pattern of Lincoln logo shaped cutouts throughout it to catch water, etc.

Yes. The logos look like they may be laid out a little differently, but that might just be the perspective of the photo. Essentially, though, that's the mat.

It's a hard molded plastic. It does have a little flexibility, but is rigid enough that it holds its shape and doesn't roll at the edges.

I just looked closer at the photos in that eBay listing. In those, the mat looks like it been rolled up or shipped rolled up and appears to have creases along the edges and some coil. Mine is absolutely flat. Not sure if mine had been shipped flat to the dealer or what...but mine does not have any of those crease or roll indicators.

That's awesome...yeah that would work for my needs, I'm just looking to protect rear cargo area and Im not about to shovel snow in there lol, but some protection would help keeping things dry....price is quite reasonable as well....thank you for the heads up kmccart appreciate the help man!

When I bought my MKC, I had also ordered the all weather mats from the Lincoln dealer. I checked out the WeatherTech liners today and the sides are a lot higher and they also cover the left foot support so I decided to bite the bullet and ordered the front set only.

I originally wanted the north ridge but they didn't have brown which was what I really wanted to match/highlight my hazelnut interior. I took a chance on the rubber tite ones. Those have little circles instead of the rectangular patterns to catch the water/dirt. They also DONT have an actual lip which worried me at first.

I'm happy with them for a few reasons a lot based on MY preferences...

They are a sturdy flexible hard rubber, not too thin and flimsy, not too thick and heavy. I don't like the big heavy rubber ones, harder to quick pull out and shake dirt/water off if necessary or even hose off quick. The circle pattern is easier to dry up too with a towel if you hose them. I also like the no lip design because you never knock you feet on them and don't even know they are there. They are smooth and not "sticky" rubber if you know what I mean. Again your feet don't "catch" on them.

They fit everywhere perfectly and stay put. They are not big and bulky like some of the rubber mats can be. Cargo mat came rolled, others came flat. laid out flat perfectly in a few hours, no curling problem.

For my needs they caught the dirt and snow/water just fine. I never had a "run off" I am generally careful/mindful about not jumping in my car with filthy wet muddy shoes :smile and any snow stuck would melt and stay on the mat. If it looked like a lot of water sitting on the mat after a drive I just grab an old towel from my garage and blot it up easily (again the rectangular pattern style with all the grooves would make this a little more time consuming). So despite all my other dirt and stuff in the doors of my car LOL my interior is still perfect like new!

If you are extra dirty or track a lot of snow/ice/mud in your car I would go with the north ridge or another that can trap larger amounts of that. I would say the rubber tite ones are for moderate/average.

Really wanted these in brown with the custom MKC logo stitching (for non winter months) but when you look at the total for the full set ($260 plus ship) I don't want to invest that amount in this car right now until I see what happens with it.

They look nice, click on customization to see the MKC and Lincoln logos you can add.

I got my WeatherTech mats last night and installed them right away....they fit great. I expected the material to be a little thicker than it is so it will be interesting to see how they hold out.

Again, I agree with you countryguy....they seem to be on the side of "flimsy", crazy thin material, as you said, we shall see how they hold up. I never heard back from corporate WeatherTech so far....it's been over a week since I emailed them with my displeasure about the trunk liner....I'll give them another week to respond then open "other" channels of communication with head office.
Honestly, I have no problem paying a premium price for a premium product.....however when I pay a premium price and get inferior product,I get pretty disappointed.....I intend on getting my message across to corporate headquarters.
Enough consumer complaints and they realize it will effect their bottom line $$$.

So I wonder if there are some odd QA things going on at WeatherTech. Seeing the complaints from you guys, I have to tell you, I have had no issues. I have had my full set in the 2016 MKC for 3500 miles now. They lay flat, sides do not curl (front or back), the cargo mat is perfect. Yes... agreed they are not uber thick, but as long as they don't move around or curl, I guess I don't care. The likelihood of wearing through them... ummm yeah, I would have to drive this car for 10 years for that to even become a concern.

Hey Ray,
I've had my WeatherTech's for about 13 months and have had a running disagreement with them about the same issues you're hearing from others. They don't continue to fit tight in the back mats only. The fronts are fine. It's a good design but poorly done. The "shell" is too thin on the rear mats causing them to disfigure. I got tired of being treated like a noob by their service people and wrote it off as a bad experience. I was told twice to "never take them out to clean them. They are designed to be wiped off." Also, I was told to "turn them inside out for a day or two and they'll be fine." Right. Please excuse the size of these pics. I rarely have anyone in my back seat other than the occasional grandkid - and they didn't cause this. I'm not a fan. You seem to be an exception to what I'm hearing! I wish you well!
