Is this totally normal and I've just never noticed it? If not, does this seem like something serious (i.e., safety-related) that I ought to get checked out ASAP? Or is it probably just cosmetic? Thanks in advance!
lilxmouse, this is not normal. The floor should be smooth all the way up to the dashboard. I had this exact same issue on my new 2013. Took it to my dealer and they said there was an AC vent underneath the carpet that was out of place. They fixed it promptly because I took them around to all the other cars on their lot and none of them had the protrusion like mine.

You are correct, it is an AC/heater vent but it should be smooth and not protruding. If yours is protruding, take it to your dealer and get them to install it correctly.
