Question Seat Cover Recommendations?

My Saturn SC1 now has 167,000 miles, and is still going strong. However, the fabric on the driver's seat back has worn through in the lower left corner -- right where your butt rubs as you get in and out of the car. There's a couple of holes now, and it's only going to get worse.

I was thinking that a seat cover would be sufficient to preserve the integrity of the seat. I'd like something that fits reasonably well, but it doesn't have to be 100% perfect. It would also be nice to find something that fits without a lot of adjusting / customization.

Seat bottom is in good shape -- I just need to protect the back.

Any recommendations? Sources?

Some people use t-shirts to go over the seat backs. Also, you might look around your local salvage yard. I picked up a correct fabric front passenger side seat for $15 a few years back.

You can also get a passenger seat from a junkyard and use its fabric. Passenger seats usually have less wear than the drivers seat and the fabric and foam are usually in way better condition.

Try to find a junker with leather seats - I put a couple of black leather seats in mine straight from the JY. Now I keep seat covers on the bottoms and leave the tops bare.
