Hey, I'm new here (obviously) because I figured owners of the same car may be able to help me out better than asking random people.

I was curious, what are the best type of seat covers to use for an '00 Seville?
It has the integrated seat belts, which makes it harder to find covers for it.

I recently bought my Seville used and it's in great shape and I want to keep it that way since it is a gorgeous car, inside and out.

Thanks so much

There are universal covers that will work with integrated belts, but unless you drive a '79's pickup truck with a flat top bench seat, no universal cover looks good.

There are companies that make model specific covers, but I don't believe any are available for these cars.

You'll have to do some googling to find a company that makes custom covers. They're not cheap though. An upholstery shop can make them as well.

BTW, :welcome:

I'll have to look into the custom ones more, I found some that looked identical to the seats in my car, but I couldn't find the actual product available online.

The seat covers will be well worth the money in protecting the leather overall.

I just was hoping I could find some for cheaper through the help of people on here.

I appreciate the reply very much :)

Never could understand putting seat covers on. You buy a car for transportation and to enjoy it. You put seat covers on to protect the seats for the next owner of the car. The seat covers are almost always less comfortable than the leather which lowers your enjoyment. When I buy a car I intend on enjoying the ride and comfort and screw resale

I've just seen leather seats crack and cease to be comfortable.
I wanted something comfortable and stylish to protect it for myself, not for the next owner. :)

I had a - special ordered - '85 Mustang 302 GT 5-speed. Metallic gray, gray/gray velour interior. Put seat covers on the front buckets. Expensive seat covers. Kept it until '92, drove the doo-doo out of it and it developed the Ford Mustang peeling paint. Not the clearcoat - the metallic gray paint was peeling in long strips. The headliner was drooping. The hatch leaked. I sold it for a good price - privately, and when I did I removed the seat covers. The seats were pristine. The rest of the car was gnarly. Seats were really pretty, though.

Get into www.autogeek.net and learn how to care for and preserve leather - and seat covers are NOT good for leather, either. Occasional cleaning, preservation and maybe a SEM treatment every 3 years is all you need.

Here's my car at 9 years 1 month old - it still looks close to this today, using only the above.
