Default Seat Cover buyers Beware

I bought a set of seat covers last week from exact seat covers in Texas. Got them yesterday and after looking at them today in the daylight they are going back. The covers are so thin you can see thru them. They probably wouldnt last this month. I talked to John the manager and got a return #. Those were the worst seat covers I have ever seen. They were burgundy velour. So, if you need some dont get these from them. They SUCK!!

velour is a thin cloth, as are most body cloths. they will last a while as a lot of cars in the late 80s and early 90s use it. now, if they were just slip covers, they might not last as long. if they were actual upholstery, then they should be fine.

The material exact seat covers uses is NOT current automobile interior velour. They told me it was made in Costa Rica. I have thick velour in my truck. I got samples from other companies that are a lot better than the ones I got. They have been returned,

I wanted heated leather really bad in my '04 Ranger. Leather covers were $500 plus heat kits. Paid more for '09 Explorer buckets from fleabay. Blown airbags had damaged the back corners. Took the skins off to get repaired. Found out why OEM looks so much better than covers. Really deep vertical and horizontal groves (tucks?) are attached to cords anchored in foam or velcro'ed to foam. Nice deep sculptured look you can't get with covers.

A super PITA to re-bracket but happy now.
