I need a new driver side car mat for my 96 Honda Civic
What do people recommend getting?

I did purchase a set of four carpet mats that were supposed to stick to the carpet and had little velcro things to help.
They however did not stick to the in car carpet and the mats just moved under the clutch when I got in, so I quickly removed that set. (Hope Super Cheap can accept a return)

Ive never liked mats, have had 2 cars that came with them where they keep bunching up under the accelerator and I end up wondering why the car is floored but hardly moving much.

I returned the ones I had purchased and since I had the car with me, tested a bunch out until I found a suitable set of 4.
Just need to take a small nick out of one of the corners so it can sit under the foot rest plate

If you buy the Car official mats from the dealer this does not happen as they fit correctly using the attachments.

After market mats are hopeless

Agreed. My car has hooks on the floor to prevent the mats from moving.

Mine used to, but fell out and I can't seem to 'screw' them back into the carpet.
