Floor Mats

If a floor mat is the wrong size or is not properly installed, it can interfere with the accelerator pedal and/or brake pedal. WARNING
If a floor mat is the wrong size or is not properly installed, it can interfere with the accelerator pedal and/or brake pedal.

Interference with the pedals can cause unintended acceleration and/or increased stopping distance which can cause a crash and injury. Make sure the floor mat does not interfere with the accelerator or brake pedal.

Use the following guidelines for proper floor mat usage:

► The original equipment floor mats were designed for your vehicle. If the floor mats need replacing, it is recommended that GM certified floor mats be purchased. Non-GM floor mats may not fit properly and may interfere with the accelerator or brake pedal. Always check that the floor mats do not interfere with the pedals.

► Use the floor mat with the correct side up. Do not turn it over.

► Do not place anything on top of the driver side floor mat.

► Use only a single floor mat on the driver side.

► Do not place one floor mat on top of another.

Removing and Replacing the Floor Mats
