Ever asked yourself why you have to get your car a seat cover set? If you have, then it's either your factory car seats are probably still in good condition or you simply don't care enough even when your seats are already getting dirtier and more tattered by the minute. Sure, your car would still perform even if it's got literally stinking seats. But if you'd think about all the dirt that have seeped into your seats' fabric-not to mention those gaping holes and tears made by cigarette butts or your dog's claws-you should be at least worried about your passengers' health. Not only are those stains eyesores, but they're also unhygienic.
Now, suppose your seats still are stain-free and you're convinced they're still clean, there are other factors you must consider. See, aside from protecting the seats from stains and dust, using covers also helps preserve the original look of your factory seats. This lets you increase or at least maintain your car's value in the trade-in market. Another benefit of using a car seat cover is that some aftermarket ones feature more comfortable and breathable fabric types. So, if your original seats make your legs sweaty and itchy especially during long drives, you can just put a more breathable fabric covering on your seats.
Because seat covers can be made of a variety of materials such as leather, vinyl, and sheepskin, you can easily find a set that'll match or complement your vehicle's interior. As a matter of fact, many car owners opt for uniquely designed covers for a more personalized touch. But before you buy, make sure you choose a cover design or style that has the right cut for your vehicle make and model-or whatever kind of seats you have, in case you have changed the factory ones. You wouldn't want to go through all the hassle of stretching or tucking the covers just to make them fit your seats.
Another factor you should consider is if the seat cover is easy to clean. Felt covers are quite the wash and wear type. As for the sheepskin cover, its fabric is very comfortable against the skin but it can be difficult to wash or clean because you can't just throw it in the washing machine. Leather covers, on the other hand, are basically wipe and shine, but keep in mind that they could feel really uncomfortable during hot days. Well, no matter how well you maintain or clean the covers, they'll still eventually wear out. And once they do, then it's time to get a new set.
