I've had my Captur for 5 weeks now and the car mats I had free with car (carpet mats) have worn out already , drivers mat has hole were my right foot rests on mat . It did not look that bad until I turned mat over and material has worn straight through.
So today I went to Renault Wolverhampton and showed them the worn mat and they agreed it was not good that it had worn through already and they have ordered a new set for me under warranty .
Anyone else had this problem with drivers side car mat wearing out quick ?
Will new mats wear out as quick ? I'll post update in weeks to come

I've had the same problem Mad One!
It's really strange as the wear underneath is covered in white staines like salt but no idea how this is happening. Think I'll mention it to the dealer.....

Yes mine was the carpet mats that come free with car, I think they are the ones Renault sell for £33 and are called comfort mats. The premium mats are £53 and mine don't look as good quality as these which are pictured on Renaults web site.
Yes mine had white powder residue under mat

Same problem, five months old, 3000 odd miles, worn through and white residue on the carpet.

Supplying dealer totally disinterested, these are apparanty 'after market accessories' and outside the warranty.

Very annoyed!

If/when my Captur arrives, I'll have to search for some rubber-backed bathroom carpet, cut to size. I've done this on just about every car I've owned, and it has left the original carpets in "as new" condition for the next owner. Many years ago I invested in a set of thick rubber floor mats with carpet inserts and they've not worn out yet. These go ontop of the bathroom carpet that's been cut to size
