Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I would have done these a long time ago if I realized it was so easy!!!

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I was going to attempt this over the weekend but I wasn't sure, so I checked with the dealer. Sure enough, they warned me I risked voiding my vehicle's warranty unless it was installed at the dealership.

They haven't usually been wrong about this sort of thing. They were the ones who tipped me off that the gas should always be dealer-installed as well.

I think that's just in Canada.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I too recently installed a Mopar cargo mat. I self installed and it only took me 45 minutes. I have noticed a 2-3 mpg increase since I installed it. My dealer told me to expect 5 mpg increase so I must have done something wrong in the install. Has anyone else gotten a smaller increase in MPG when self installing their cargo mat? Should I take it back to the dealer and have them re-install it?

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

No. A reinstall may make things worse and its just not worth the risk.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

My dealer said the listed labor for installing all four mats was 15 minutes, but it took him over two hours. He said it was the first time they've done this install and that he's never going to do it again.

I would definitely bring it back and ask for a new one. You should get a minimum increase of 5 mpg, downhill, with a tail wind......with the engine off.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I think they need to integrate the mats to your GC using the Scan Tool, to totally activate the feature for optimal mpg.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I have not installed them yet. I'm afraid of the error codes; P 0666 check mats.

You should not get error codes if you are installing the export version of the cargo mat.

I have tried the UK mats; did not fit, these cargo mats are for RHD
