Just wanted to get some input on the high wall Honda mats vs. the WeatherTech.
Thanks for your reply, kind of answers a question that I had about if they had change the material they are made of. I have had several sets of both WeatherTech and the all season Honda mats the regular low cut ones and sounds like they are made of the same stuff. I have used the power washer on both and actually cut the Honda ones. I think I’ll stick with WeatherTech or maybe try 3D Maxpider.I've had the WeatherTech mats in past cars but I switched to the Honda ones instead. While the WeatherTech mats still have better coverage, the Honda ones have gotten better (with the "high wall") and I like the softer feel of the rubber. The WeatherTech mats feel like a plastic tray. Not a big deal, but still a personal preference.
I agree with you, my feelings exactly. I have the 2018 Honda mats and while there is good coverage under the pedals, shouldn't be a problem with sand and mud, the dead pedal area falls short by 1/2inch or less so there might be some accumulation of dirt under that section.I've had the WeatherTech mats in past cars but I switched to the Honda ones instead.

Had the weather techs in my 9th gen and they were junk. They slid around everywhere and the one piece rear mat was a joke, every time someone rode in the back it would deform where it made contact with the front seat rails. Seems like weather techs are like this across the board not just in the Accords. The stock mats are better in some ways, specifically in that they have the rubber teeth that help prevent movement. Still not near as good as their previous generation accord mats. I still have a 6th gen with rubber mats and they are awesome. They still look very good after 17 years and 220k miles. They contain about 3-4 times as much material and as such they have enough mass to stay where you put them. Survived many many scrubbings with de greaser and are still going strong. I am interested to see if Honda has made some improvement with the 10th gen mats although I never understood why they strayed from their previous design concepts. Usually once a product is perfected you don't want to make it worse as time progresses.
yes of course as mandated by your big brother federal govt. Its actually a useful feature that should be added to all seating positions. Unfortunately its only on the drivers seat. Using the rubber tits on the bottom of the mat has worked for years. I don't understand why weathertech wont implement this in their design.Wait, your 9th gen doesn’t have the hooks to keep mats in place?
I have the Digital Fit Weathertech mats in our Kia and they’re great. I also have the Honda mats in my Accord. The rubber is so soft I don’t expect them to last as long as the Weathertechs.
