With tax season here again, I decided to finally get myself some nice seat covers.
I was in line to buy a set of used Camo WO's from another member recently, and would have loved them, but another member got to them first. I started researching all
the companies - Wet Okole, CoverKing, RuffTuff, SaddleMan, Clazzio, Katzkins, Caltrend etc. All of them seemed to be $450-$1000+ for a full DC/LB set.
I was REALLY
close to getting the CoverKing deal from Costco, which is $190/full-set for their VelociVent (sport mesh, fabric, non-water repellent) or $350/full-set for their Neoprene. I needed more protection than the VelociVent fabric, but I still couldn't bring myself to pay $380 (incl. tax) for seat covers. I began looking around some more.
At the suggestion of another member, I checked out CalTrend a little more.
Everything I read about them seemed legit: nice snug fit, great UV/Water/Mildew/Dirt protection, 2 Year warranty, good sized back pockets, good OEM Gray colors, nice stitching, console and headrest covers incl., made in the USA
Long story short, I ended up with a full set of their NeoSupreme (Black and Gray) for $240 shipped (eBay
for the Fronts, Amazon Warehouse deals for the Rear). The eBay seller also contacted me immediately to confirm EXACTLY which seats I have, which was reassuring since there are numerous options that can affect the fitment.
I should get them this week, and might post some pics and add a more thorough review once their installed.
Hope this helps anyone else who is stuck deciding on, or justifying the funds to get seat covers.
I want to post a review/opinion in here once I get the seat covers installed, but I've had a few mis-haps with both Amazon and eBay after ordering these.
: I purchased the front set (TY230-08NN) for $149. The seller contacted the day after purchase to inform that they sold the last set, and would need to wait up to 4 weeks for a new "custom" set to be delivered from CalTrend. Offere a full refund, so I took that and re-purchase the same set from Amazon Prime ($155). Says 5-7 days for delivery time.
: I purchased the Rear Set (TY184-08NN) from Amazon's
"Warehouse Deals" for $89. It was listed as 'Used-Like New' and have purchase Warehouse deals with no issues, so I bought them. Received them yesterday, and found they had sent a Front Set (TY182-08NN). I initiated a Return with Amazon, and started a "Chat" to discuss replacement options. The nice girl sent me a pre-paid return label, and said I can re-purchase the "Correct" set. I let her know I originally bought them as a Warehouse deal for $89, and if I were to buy them again, that deal would not apply and I would be paying $159. She said she would adjust the price to match what I originally paid. I bought the "NEW" Rear set from Amazon Prime, and she adjusted the total so I still got them for the same price as the warehouse deal!
So, I still ended up with a full set of CalTrend NeoSupreme covers (Black & Light Gray) for under $250!
Amazon rocks...can't wait to get my seat covers - hopefully next week!
