Since the Mazda dealer could not provide me with a solution to my problem, I figured Google could help.
I went on Google and typed in “Mazda3 carpet” and my screen was filled with 10 pages of possibilities. Awesome. I started clicking and reading away with Visa at hand. Clicked on the first result and it leads me to a page with a headline saying mazda3 carpet and with a great design made by a web design company online and that’s why I chose that page first. But as I start to scan the page all I find is page after page of leopard skin print dash covers for Mazda3’s. Not what I am looking for. Neither were floor mats.
I continued to visit over a hundred websites (using different keywords) and making several calls I have come to realize that no one makes a replacement molded carpet kit for our Mazda3.
I guess the other option left is to go old school and look into a “one off” custom made carpet for my car. I am going to get in contact with several automotive interior specialists. I will post back when I get some info.
