I was excited when we were asked to review the VersaLiving Luxury Rear Car Seat Cover. The first thing I noticed upon receiving the item was the nice packaging that includes a thank you note with contact information should the consumer have any trouble. (A gold star, in my book, before we even got it out of the package!)
In the past we purchased an expensive seat cover to haul around our three large dogs and it just didn’t work. The material was nice, but it slid around and never stayed in place. I remember looking in the rear view mirror to see the bottom cover bunched up and the dogs laying directly on the seat. In addition, the seat belt holes never really matched the buckles in our seats. It was always a struggle for someone to use the seat belt with the cover in place. So much for my expensive seat protection! Because of this experience we didn’t get car seat covers when we purchased our new van.
Would the VersaLiving Luxury Car Seat Cover live up to our high expectations?
We began to take the item out of the package and immediately noticed two things that were different from our last car seat cover experience:
- The seat part of the cover is lined with a non slip liner (similar to a shelf liner).
- There is a PVC pipe (seat anchor) on each side of the cover that slips between the crease of the bench seat to prevent the cover from pulling away from seat.
As my husband began to install the cover we could not find the instructions. I ran inside to email the company and received the instructions within about 2-3 minutes. By the time I got back to the car with the instructions, he had already installed the cover. Installation is super easy. If you have an issue, missing instructions, or any other concerns the company provides excellent customer service. *Both the installation and washing instructions are on the back of the “Thank You” post card included in the package.
- Two ties go behind the head rest on either side.
- Carefully push the PVC pipes between the upper and lower seat on either side.
- Straighten and smooth out the material.
The car seat cover looks very nice once installed. The material is thick and has a quilted design. As an added bonus, there is a strong velcro seam that can be opened or closed at any point in the crease of the seat to pull through your seat belt fasteners. This cover will accommodate seat belt buckles no matter where they are located.
We have not yet washed our seat cover but the company suggests cleaning and maintaining the cover as follows: ” We recommend wiping with a damp cloth or vacuuming to clean the cover. They can be machine washed however, they have a waterproof coating on them that helps to repel stains which wears off quicker if the cover is machine washed.”
Overall we recommend the VersaLiving car seat cover by VersaVie. The bench seat cover exceeded our expectations. The only thing we might change would be a loop in the middle for those who have a middle headrest on their bench seat. This, however, would not affect most car models. We also truly appreciate a company who stands behind their product and has good customer service. For the quality this product is well priced at $79.99 and includes a 100% satisfaction gaurantee. We will be using our VersaLiving Luxury Car Seat cover on our next road trip.
