The Dash Designs Carpet Dashboard cover was very easy to install. It looks good, and in this application stays on the front dash in place without having to use the velcro to stick it to the dash to keep in from moving around. One small complaint for the install in a 2012 Chevy Cruze. To make it easier for themselves to cut and sew an edging on, they cut out the bottom under the dash vent hole so they could edge it more easily all the way around, so the hole has an opening in it at the bottom. The piece flops a little and does not stay in place to make a complete circle, not a big deal but a small observation for the perfectionist in this install application. If they had just cut out a hole and left the bottom edge connected, it would be nicer. But then it would have been harder for them to sew edging in the hole separately from the edging around the whole outside edge of the dash cover itself, so more work and cost in it for them but would have been a nicer product. Personally will fix it for myself by getting a little thread and sewing the two pieces together again at the edge to complete the circle and make it one whole piece that stays in place over the vent again. Now to see how the material holds up over time! So far in the past I've used DashMat brand covers, and have one that is still in great shape after 17 years in use.
