    Hey Guys,

    I'm loosing my mind over this, I always have the 3rd row collapsed and use the extra cargo room with a Weather Tech mat to cover the rug. But the "Auto Seats" with the fold down won't lay completely flat and all the cargo continually slides to the rear door. I have been over it and tried to force them to lay flatter and to no avail. Does anyone have an idea on how to get them to lay flatter?

    Yeah the head rests don't touch the floor. It is the seat bottoms under it, heck if it would work I'd take the dam things out. I'll only use them MAYBE once a year. I have to go back to the stealer in another 3000 miles for the first service I'm making my list for SURE!!

    I have the same problem with my 2017 Tahoe Premier. There should be a cargo net that came with your Tahoe. I hooked it up to the back of the truck and it helps keep groceries and stuff from sliding out. I found this solution after dumping a couple bags of groceries on the driveway! The cargo net isn't the best because small stuff can slide out under it, but it's better than nothing (barely).

    Good luck.

    I got a hold of Weathertech and told them what was going on and asked them if I could get some of the grip pads so I got my hands on 8 of them and I modified them a little and wound up gluing them to the back of the mat and it actually STAYS in place! Of course the cargo slides some but nothing like fighting that dam mat and it getting caught in the auto close tailgate all the time. Pics to follow
