not sure if you are interested in these but I got them for my VC and love them.
Weathertech floormats. I bought the digital fit versions and they are exactly as described and fit perfectly. These have kept my gray interior spotless. The drivers side mat even rides up on the left floor board "foot block" high enough to prevent getting anything on that carpeted section.

Yep, I have those, problem I have is they seem to like to ride up and expose a small portion of the carpet, I need to find a way to get them to stay put, maybe some velcro on the back. The nubs used for the factory mats are causing this. Its the big footed Teen that tends to push the mats out of the way in the back seats, no matter how many times I dope slap him!

how easy is it to get into the 3rd row. I have 3 young boys and I need the 3rd row.

Pretty easy, there is a hand hold in the wheel well inside where you can pull yourself up into the back, the Seats move real easy, there is a lever on the side of the seat back you flip up and the whole seat slides forward. With the seat forward there is enough room that if you have a car seat in the third row like I do, it is easy to climb in there to buckle the kid in.

My Wife and I love our 07 Veracruz Limited AWD. We were one of the first 500 VC owners. Purchased on Mothers Day May 07, for $33,000+tax
Now have 27,000 miles and no major problems at all. TPMS light was fixed,headlights adjusted, and recall on fuel filter, all under warranty.
Getting 20 MPG on average
To make it look more sporty, I added a front mask, and custom door mouldings, really helps keep dents away. I also added gold plating to name badges.
Next purchase will be a new dark floor mats, the beige interior shows the dirt.
Highly recomend the VC

650 were sold in April 2007, so how could you be one of the first 500?
I have owned mine since April 07 and also, so far no major problems, but a few under warranty repairs:
-weatherstripping on both rear doors came loose
-all 4 chrome door handles became discolored
-the top latch on the center console broke
-turn signals will occasionally stop making the "clicking" sound when they are on. Tech at the dealership said it could be 1 of 3 parts causing the problem, but at over $1000 each he can't/won't order them until the problem happens for him.

Wow. At $1000 each how do they keep the price of this vehicle around and under $30000?
That's US military part pricing!

Wow! I haven't been this excited to drive since I was 16 and got my learner's permit and felt the freedom! We went from a Chrysler MiniVan to the Veracruz. It's so luxurious feeling inside and I love that it drives like a car, not truck. Dealer had to "find" one for us but wanted our sale so beat our lowest price and the one we ended up getting had a few extras we didn't pay for but didn't turn down like bluetooth, etc. Drives great for the first 78 miles I have on it! And can't beat that new car smell!

Congrats, hope you enjoy it and have it as trouble free as I do. over 1 year and nearly 13000 miles, and not a single complaint or problem.
#15 of 15 Love my Veracruz

Still loving my '07 Veracruz Limited. Now with 27K. I still get a strong sense of enjoyment every time I drive it. Get compliments all the time.
Got the headlight issue solved (was dangerous) and recently had to have the idler arm (?) replaced under warranty. Held up well when rear-ended last winter (low speed). Have installed a Webelectric 3rd brakelight pulser now, which often seems to have a positive effect on traffic behind me. Am going to install their DLR system.
Still wondering about why the lights dim and blower motors slows briefly with downshifting. Dealer says it's normal. I'm not so sure.
