Positives are pretty obvious (looks clean, cheap, easy to install, easy to clean).

Negatives: unpleasant if you walk into your garage barefoot, can get bruised if you jack up a 4000lbs BMW a regular jack (actually it barely got nicked), can only sweep it in one direction (I just blow it out with the leaf blower), shows dirt more than nasty concrete

Also be careful not to do any wild steering wheel turns when the car is stopped - it will pull the flooring (it does return to normal pretty fast, though).

Read my post above as my opinion has not changed. I own 3 of the above mats, which were purchased at Menards.

I would add that I haven't really had an issue with the mats sliding around. The only time they move is when I jack a car up. When you raise/lower the car, the tire will pull a bit on the mat.

Not a big deal. Just a few kicks with the sole of your shoe and the mat is back in place.

Just an FYI for those of you who have these mats; Contact cleaner (spray) does a fantastic job of removing gunk.
