I know it's been suggested that the 2016 Pilot Weathertech FRONT floor mats will work perfectly in the G2, has anyone been able to confirm this first hand?

Well? Has anyone actually confirmed this? I called WeatherTech and they can't give any kind of timeline,......I need front mats. I live in the southeast coast and it storms almost every day......I am about to order 2016 Pilot front mats but I want to be 100% sure the fit right.

I just installed the 2017 ridgeline mats from the accessories catalog. Why are you not considering ordering these? They seem well constructed and perfect fitment.

I like the way the WeatherTech cover under the pedals to keep the carpet dry......The Honda mats don't come up as high.....

To each their own. I called WeatherTech and emailed them before I purchased my 2016 Pilot to see when they would have them available. No response whatsoever so got the ones from Honda - am super happy with them. From the photos I've seen for the 17 Pilot (think it was a promo) I do not like the way the second row mat covers the bottom few rows of the center console outlet for the rear. Yes, they can be cut down, but then you do not have a lip of any kind to stop spilled liquid (or melted snow from boots) from going into the vent. Also, the last two sets of WeatherTech mats I purchased (in gray), they stained easily and would not come clean even when using harsh cleaners like Ajax or Comet cleaner with bleach. So, for my money, WeatherTech overall quality and customer service has declined to the point where I will not consider them for my future vehicles. Made in the USA only goes so far when the service and product are very expensive and of less quality.

I think I know your problem. You aren't supposed to use harsh chemicals to clean the weather techs or Huskyliner. I believe you're only supposed to use water to wipe them down.

Thanks for the reminder about WeatherTech's recommended cleaning technique. Following their suggestions the stains did not come out - figured I'd pull out the big guns. It didn't work either. I hate stained mats.

I couldn't get a timeline from WeatherTech, so I took a chance and ordered front mats for a 2016 Pilot I can't wait 8-10 weeks I should have them Friday, If they don't fit 100% I guess I'll buy my wife a new Pilot.......

Understood, please post back with your. Results. And. A photo if you have. Time... I'm assuming that you only bought front liners?

I put a bug shield on made by AVS for the 2016 Pilot. It fit my 2017 ridgeline perfectly. Hopefully, you will have similiar results.

yes i will, Look for it on Saturday Wife is driving it for now and she works nights and i get home after she leaves for work.
Well bad news! The WeatherTech front mats for a 2016 Pilot will NOT FIT!!!! The problem is the anchors in the Ridgeline floor are 16 inches apart width wise Drivers side. The 2016 Pilot WeatherTechs holes are 17 1/2 inches apart, This is for the drivers side. Honda has the anchor that would be the right side moved over the the left 1 1/2 inch, It is closer to that hump to make a tighter fit around it.....Looks like I got to buy a Pilot now! And I guess we have to wait 8-10 weeks for the new Ridgeline mats, but I might just get the Honda weather mats, This sucks!

Sly2 thanks for the update. Sorry this didn't work out.

If you can't return the mats, you can probably sell them on Ebay.

I bought the RL Honda rubber mat set....not a good as a weather tech; however, they are decent (and they say 'Ridgeline', too). Got them online cheaper than my dealer was going to sell them to me.

So is it only an issue of punching a new hole in the Pilot weathertechs? Did everything else fit, just not the plastic anchors?

The main reason most people buy Weathertechs is that they hold liquids (rain/snow/mud). Punching a hole in them would defeat that purpose, unless of course you live in sunny CA :)

If you really want the Weathertech mats why don't you buy some universal rubber mats to hold you over until Weathertech releases the RL mats?
