Boot liner for car?
I would buy one that fits the boot perfectly (if that needs to be from the dealer then buy it from there)
If you ever intend on selling the car, a spotless carpet in the boot can really help as it shows a well looked after car.
I give discounts on Valet prices for people who have a full/fitted boot cover, so if you get your car valeted three or four times its paid for itself.Posted 5 years agoDavesportSubscriber
Is it worth buying a boot liner for a new car?
I’m a big fan of them. Especially the ones the manufacturers make to fit the boot. I had a hard plastic tray for my V70 that caught countless spillages & I then transferred that after 3 years into another V70. I also had the boot liner in a Seat Alhambra…again excellent & transferred to another car when I traded in. Now back in a Volvo XC 70 with the optional high sided boot liner & it’s been excellent. Although it’s a new vehicle it gets used. I’ve had the boot full of logs/chainsaws/slabs/rubble & I can say honestly I couldn’t do without it.
Twice I have bought the OEM Volvo boot dirt liner for an XC70 / V70 and both times they have been a pile of cr*p. At £150 a pop it starting to grate a little as Volvo still cant seem to get it right.
What’s the problem with yours ?

The old one for pre 2007 model was velcro attachment at the sides. It just didn’t “velcro” to the carpet and would drop off. There was also a fricton fit to the rear of the seats that didn’t have much friction so again would drop out.
The lastest one seemed to have cured the problem with proper hook attachement to the side luggage system and straps over the head rests. Two problems. The hooks are too loose, particularly on one side so drop out quite easily. The headrest straps must be for the Volvo truck (not seat or headrest) as the straps are way too wide so it pulls the liner in at the seat backs like cheap shopping bags
2 dogs / 5miles and all hell has broken loose with the boot liner even with a dog matt to hold the base in place.Posted 5 years agoADSubscriber
I have a fitted plastic one in my Forester which is great except for one thing – stuff slides around a lot. Might sound obvious but it can be annoying if you like driving briskly.Posted 5 years ago
I suspect the fitted non-plastic liners would be better if not quite as tough and a lot easier to store if you take it out…
