No matter what vehicle you drive, keeping your seats clean and dry can be a daunting challenge. It may not seem all that difficult, but consider all of the cold and damp weather we encounter on a daily basis during the fall and winter. How big are your seats? What do the headrests and armrests look like? Will new seat covers interfere with the seat belts? Here are some other questions to keep in mind when you go to choose your next set of seat covers this holiday season.
What Are the Basics?
This is the first question you must ask yourself, and subsequently answer. What do we mean when we say the “basics”, exactly?
- What model year does your ride belong to?
- What’s the make and model?
- What series does your vehicle belong to (i.e., what is the sub-model?)
If you’re not sure you can answer these questions, or you just don’t remember, you can always double check the registration attached to your automobile, or consult the owner’s manual.
What Type of Seats?
The next question you should consider involves the look of the seats. Do you have bucket seats or bench seats? When you’re choosing the right seat covers for your car or truck, you’ll want to be sure they stay on when you expect them to do so. At the same time, you should ensure that the covers fit well enough that they don’t get in the way of the headrest or the seatbelts.
What Does the Headrest Look Like?
Take a look at the seat covers that you already have. Unfortunately, attempting to do this is probably impossible if you don’t have a set and are looking to get some for the first time. Some seat covers will fit over the headrest as soon as you install them, and others will have optional headrest covers to use at your discretion. You might not be able to tell the difference unless you take a closer look before proceeding.
How Does the Seatbelt Buckle?
The last question you need to answer concerns the seatbelt. Some cars have seatbelts integrated into the seat itself, while for others, the seatbelt is merely an attachment on the side of the car. Before you can buy any new seat covers, you’ll have to determine how the seatbelt buckles first.
