My new Nox is a replacement for a 2006 Pontiac Vibe. With the kids off and gone its now my wife and I and the Golden Retriever Riley. Riley goes with us everywhere so the entire rear section is hers. I miss the Vibe in this respect. The rear seats in the Vibe folded flat but not the Nox. I cut a blue poly tarp to fit the rear section then cut a piece of indoor outdoor carpet to go in over the tarp material. We are avid Geocachers as is the dog so she is in and out of the car alot. When necessary we can remove the tarp and carpet for cleaning or for hauling passengers. For those who arent familar with Goldens, they are capable of shedding enough long golden hair to fill up the entire rear portion of the car in a single sitting so protecting the carpet and seats is a must. Yank out the carpet, vacuum it and then to the local laundromat and wash it. Works great.
