Rug and matting falling apart!

    My '07 ION.3 is only 7 mo. old and already the rubber matting under where my
    left foot sits (just above where the rug ends under the dash) has a hole in
    it from where my foot rests.

    The rug under where the clutch is also showing signs of wear and is thinning
    out. I do have mats but this is occurring in the area just above the mats on
    the rubber sound padding where my left foot rests when I am not clutching.
    I've never see a new car wear like this!

    I was wondering if there is anything that I can put down to reduce wear and
    tear, like an adhesive plastic or rubber sheet?

    Thanks for any good ideas. I am under warranty, but my service dept. doesn't
    seem to care about this and is calling this "normal wear and tear". (sigh)

    and yes, I did cross-post this with SaturnFans and IONforums as well.
    Understandably I am quite upset and am looking for any constructive
    solutions from owners or techs who have also experienced this.
