Default Rubber Cargo Mat

Anyone have any suggestions as to where I can purchase one? ECS is back ordered and I can't find one on VW. Thanks

The carpeted one lets you use the velcro blocks to hold things in place. These are really handy and functional. I wouldn't go any other way. But maybe you have other needs.

That's great until you have to move more 'abrasive' loads. There are lots of things I carry in my trunk that I really wouldn't want to have on carpet including, fuel, dirt, building materials (Concrete, bricks, tools), field equipment, etc that I just don't want to clean off carpet.

There seems to be some results on ebay if your set on a factory one but they're really not anything too special, other than the big VW in them.

Have the Weather Tech cargo mat in my 2011 Golf. Love it.
Your 2013 JSW would look good with one in the back.

Although I think the carpeted mat is made to be durable, what you're describing constitutes other needs, as I mentioned. The carpet just looks more finished and the mat is removable and cleans easily. We've hauled many of the things you mentioned and the mat still looks new.

Weather Tech mats are heavy, durable and contain water spillage, if that is of concern. We just really like the velcro blocks to contain things you haul and the more finished appearance.

I use the carpeted exact fit mat and velcro blocks with a square generic mat on top which does not cover the entire trunk area. I use the velcro blocks to keep things from shifting or falling over. I use the plastic mat with upturned edges to carry dirty or damaging loads from messing up the carpeted exact fit mat. You should be able to find generic mats online or at local parts stores. I have had my generic square mat for so long I am not sure where I got it.

I've thought about getting the OEM rubber mat for my Golf. The carpet with velcro blocks worked fine when new, but over time the blocks don't hold as well. I tried shaving the carpet, but it didn't do much good.

For Weathertech, I always hear great things about the floor mats. When I saw them in someone else's car, however, I wasn't impressed. They are more like plastic than rubber. If the rear trunk mat is also more like plastic, then it won't keep things from sliding around the way a rubber mat does.

The one in the back of my Golf keeps things from sliding around very nicely. if you drive like your in a road rally then you may want to tie things down. Yes, they are more like plastic I agree.
