Hole in Carpet

I just noticed this the other day, there is a hole cut into the carpet on the passenger side right in front of the passenger seat. It is cut in half and when you pull it back it shows me the cars VIN #. Has anyone else noticed this?

Why would they cut the carpet? I want to see if I can complain and get it fixed or if it is something that is mandatory.

Mine is the same way, didn't notice the VIN, though.

Is this the holes to screw in the floor mats? When I bought the car a month ago, I noticed a bag of black plastic screws. I was told by the salesmen, they were to screw in all 4 floor mats.

That's pretty wacky. Never noticed that before. At least it's far enough under the seat and not noticeable when you push the carpet back in place.

gmcjim, no, this is different than the floor mat anchor mounting points. Look in passenger side of your car -- then look under the front edge of the seat. You don't even have to remove the mat to see this...

Wow, sure enough. Those crazy Aussies. Open up those two little "barn doors" in the carpet, and there's the VIN.

The carpet "holes" are almost invisible when they are closed. There's no reason to "get them fixed." They are serving their purpose and certainly aren't ugly by any means.
