Some 2006 Fusion, Milan, and Zephyr vehicles may exhibit premature front driver side floor mat wear.

Replace the floor mats.

Just recieved my new mats, set of 4, the material is the same cheap crap , all they did is add a plastic/rubber mat to the driver side mat (only) where the drivers heel would rest providing some protection forthe mat.
It looks ok, its slighty raised from the mat and I don't thnk it will come off to easily.
This is going to be one of those grey areas I can see it now. The tsb for the floor mats recognizes that there is a problem with the mats and FOMOCO is willing to pay for replacements. The TSB does state (as do they all) that they a re covered within the limits of the new vehicle warranty which when interpreted means either within the 36/60 basic warranty or as some dealers may assume the 12/20 warranty which is for maintenance and wear items. Now wipers, alignments, wheel balance, frictional items, these are some of the items listed in the warranty and policy manual as wear & maintenance items. No where are floor mats listed as a wear item, in fact upholstery is covered under basic warranty which if we include floor mats would be covered under 36/60 against "abnormal" wear. Unless specifically deemed 12/20 items I would have to say 36/60 on the mats.
