Car seat covers

Hi there,

Our family just bought a new minivan, honda odyssey 2018 EX. Can you please rexommend decent seat covers for a good price. I have been browsing several websites, there are just way too many material options and prices seem scary. For all 3 rows 500-800$.

Thank you.

Why do you need a car seat cover?
Driving a taxi or uber?

Get the leather seats, it helps to clean much faster and efficient than the cloth material seats.

lol, not sure if that's possible unless you are referring to leather seating covers.

Best bet try Canadian tire and maybe Walmart. You may get an idea as to what kind of seat cover do you like.
Good luck!

Just bought, not sure if OP took delivery already....
If he just put down a deposit and waiting for a delivery or on order through manufacture. he may able to make changes to it.

If OP have the car already and doesn't have leather , then he has no choice to get an aftermarket car covers.
I personally like the transparent one, it keep the OEM look and adding a layer on top of the seat for protection.

Yeah we just gave the deposit of $1000 and are supposed to receive the car sometime this week.

Do you think I can still change my order? My wife really wanted white minivan, so that's the colour that we got. Now, please don't think that I am very light minded, but after having to deal with my wifes constant mind changing about the vehicle she wanted - I did not do my research on the colour of the seats inside. Turns out they are - turd brown. So I was also hoping to musk that colour with nicer looking seat protectors.

Ask your Sales Advisor.
I'm not sure how much to add the leather seat on your EX. Sometimes it could be better off to upgrade the trim level higher to get leather PLUS other goodies than just adding the leather. I haven't go to Honda web site to price it out.

I just think leather is nicer and much easier to clean with wipe and vaccum.

Costco store sells great seat covers when they are in stock. The last batch were black and looked really good. I used the previous black/grey ones for years on my van.

Costco online has custom fit covers in a wide choice of colours but more expensive.

BTW seat covers slide around on leather so only really practical on cloth imo.
