Would you pay $250 for front seat covers? My sisters and I....usually go in together and buy my mother a christmas gift. My younger sister suggested getting seat covers for my moms car that are $250 just for fronts. That sounds like a alot for seat covers. Your thoughts >>>>

Depends on the quality and if they are custom fitted. I would pay that if they are quality material to protect leather.

Nope. You will trash the car with brand new looking seats. With the cleaning products today and machines, its pretty easy to clean material or leather.

We sell ones from GT Covers that end up being about that much if you check the right boxes. They fit really well. I don't sell a lot of them because I mostly do back counter, but the ones I have sold have almost all been perfect. The only one that wasn't was a customer issue, not a cover issue.

I think it depends on the value of the vehicle. Last year I paid $975 including installation for a pair of front leather seat covers custom made by Roadwire for my Ridgeline. The leather quality was excellent and they look as good as OEM. My originals were cloth.

Personally I don't believe in seat covers for good seats. Like rolla07 said, why keep the seats like new for the next owner. Seat covers are for worn out seats. My 2014 Fusion has only 25000 on it, and the seats are like new, and I am not about to put on seat covers.

These seat defenders are very good and reasonably priced at $40 each. Side airbag safe and easily removed. The Honda dealer sells them but they're universal fit. Amazon has them for $10 less each. Other colors available but slightly more money. Perhaps not the best looking but they stay in place and can be removed in 3 seconds.

I think it depends on your situation. Some people may have a nice car and a dirty job and want to keep it looking nice. My mother is 84 and uses her car mostly as a grocery getter so buying seat covers is pointless IMO.

Now that the OP gave more information, I don't see how an 84 year old driver needs seat covers for a four year old car that's in very good condition and that gets very little use. Get Mom something she needs.

I agree. Seat covers sounds like something she doesn't want or need.

If I was 84 I'd like something consumable, like a big box of really good chocolates, a bottle of nice wine/sherry/cognac/etc, and an assortment of crackers and cheese. I'm not 84 and I'd like that!

I'm in and out of my vehicle all day long and drive them until the wheels fall off. I have never needed seat covers. shrug
