Buick Encore: Floor Mats

Warning

If a floor mat is the wrong size or is not properly installed, it can interfere with the pedals.

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 pedals.

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.
  • Do not use a floor mat if the vehicle is not equipped with a floor mat retainer on the driver side floor.
  • 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.

The driver side floor mat is held in place by a button-type retainer.

Removing and Replacing the Floor Mats
Removing and Replacing the Floor Mats

    Verify the floor mat does not interfere with the pedals.
