Econour kick mats boast of awesome customer experience

The one memorable thing about my experience with Econour kick mats was that their customer support desk was top-notch. Yes, there might be complaints on the amazon online stores that the material is not that durable and sturdy but you have to give them a 5 star rating when it comes to their tactfulness and prompt replies whenever you make a concern to their help desk. I remember the first time the Econour kick mat was shipped to me, they had holes and I promptly called the customer support who helped me and sent a replacement. What’s more, the Econour kick mats had many organizer pockets giving me multiple locations to store my things in the car. And of course, they were great kicks for those little legs of my kids who just love dirtying anything that their legs can get themselves on.

When I bought the Econour I remember I was travelling upcountry to my parent’s village which is a place that is ever wet with rain. This was during the December holiday and my kids wanted to travel to all their cousins who live in the village. So you can imagine how bad it must have felt seeing that every day was a rainy one. There were times when it would pour when we were in the car or a t my cousin’s homestead and I knew that I would have to battle with mud as well as water on the car seats.

Thankfully, the Econour car kit mats were waterproof and as such I did not have to deal with water soaked all over my car seats.

PROS:
  • The Water proof material was great in preventing soaking of water
  • They protected my car from muddy kicks from the kids
  • The customer experience was really tactful and great
CONS:
  • I would advise buyers to be cautious with the kick mat as they could get ripped away when kids try to pull them off.

I fell in love with the Britax kick mats the first time that I saw them. The picture that the company has put of this product on amazon is of a kick mat that is easily washable, waterproof and at the same time one that is easy to install. And that is where my love for this product began. And I am happy to say that the love affair has not come to an end. And neither will it in the near future unless they start doing shoddy work on the manufacture.

The kick mats come in pairs and all for the price of less than $10. That is crazy, ain’t it? Indeed it is considering that you will no longer have to worry about your kids smearing dirt and all kinds of filth on the back of your car seats.

Other than protecting your car seats from dirt, the Britax kick mats also come with meshy pockets at the back where you can keep your kids snacks, drinks and anything that they will need when you are travelling. That means that you no longer need to clutter your dashboard and every other car compartment trying to look for places to keep your kids snacks. And since those snacks are at their disposal they will not need to wail at you as they ask you to pass them the bottle or water or a handkerchief for a runny nose.

PROS:
  • Easily washable since you can either use your hands or machine to wash away all the dirt on it
  • Waterproof and as such it protects you from spillages getting into contact with the back of the car seats.
  • Easily attachable to the car seat since it comes with buckles and straps to hook on to.
CONS:
  • One needs to handle the mat with care since too much force could make it torn apart.

Are the drive auto products kick mats the strongest in the market?

The drive auto products company describe their kick mats as the strongest in the market. But you know what, that is a marketing gimmick and it only become a fact when it is proved by the customers. So I went ahead to buy the kick mat for a friend and wanted to see how durable it would be.

After one month of use, one thing was clear. The drive auto products was one of those products that you would buy if you wanted a stress free life. For one, it was able to trap all those little kicks such that I did not have to shout my voice hoarse trying to warn the kids from smearing mud on my car seats or even spend lots of time trying to clean the mud and stains out. No, all I needed was to wipe the drive auto kick mat with a wet cloth and in no time, it would be sparkling clean.

The rubber kick mats were odorless—something that I had feared my friend would battle with as I clicked on the ‘add to cart button’ on amazon. So this was a big surprise for me—no bad odor. They were also easy to install and no one needs to notice that it is a kick mat since the straps are ingenuously styled so that you can buckle them up without people having to see them from the front.

On them being the strongest kick mat, I felt that pure leather kick mats would beat them but they were strong enough though. Not the strongest, but strong enough I would say.

PROS:
  • Strong and durable
  • Easy to clean
  • Odorless
  • Easy to install
CONS:
  • The product description that they are the strongest was false and that did not sit well in me.
