The WeatherTech mats I have fit very good - no sliding around etc. They've been in two G8's (my previous 2009 GT and now the GXP) and fit both perfectly. My wife's Equinox has a set also and they fit great as well.

The biggest issue that I have with my Weathertech matt is my driver side mat.

There is is a small gap between the trim and the left side of the mat. I think this is caused because when I get out of my car, I use my right foot to push myself out and then the left side of the mat gets "pushed" out from the trim a bit thus causing the gap. I tried to rectify the situation by placing velcro strips along the left side of the mat and and long the corresponding plastic door opening trim. It lasts awhile but then over time and heat/cold cycles the adhesive wears and then the the velcoro pulls off the mat and then we are back to square one. (I even tried superglue!) The fit of the passgenger side mat is wonderful, mostly because no one hardly sits on the side.

If anyone has some better ideas I am open to try them out.

I guess I don't understand this. How can there be such a difference in the fit in the G8??? Some guys are saying that they fit perfect, some say that they slide. I just got mine a couple of weeks ago and they are sliding every time that I get out of the car. The retention "dome" on the mat is too big for the one on the carpet. You have a 1 inch "dome" trying to fit on a 1/2" "bump" on the carpet. So they want to send me Velcro. And I read that someone says that it doesn't even stick. All you really need is some kind of rubber "washer" to fit over the carpet "bump" that would allow the mat to fit secure. I am trying to find something that will work. Quality is great but definitely not happy with the fit.

Have them in 3 vehicles right now and the drivers side one in the G8 is the worst fit of all 3 but its still 95% OK and they are the best available. Plus their produced in the U.S.A.

Not ordered for the G8, but disappointed in their fit for wife's Highlander. Lot of irregular things on outside edge of driver's side (foot rest, pocket for a gas cap release lever and front cover of seat track) not cutout accurately on their mat where the mat rides overs one those items depending on position. Also, the rise up the firewall is about 3 inches shorter than the OEM mats. No reply from Weathertech when I wrote these comments to them.

The over-the-counter "Delux" mats, trimmed to fit, are working fine for me in the G8.
