We always put seat covers and floor mats in our new cars. When its time to sell or trade them in you take them off, and brand new clean seats and floors.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!you have side airbags on the sides of the front seat. Putting seat covers over the seats will cause the side airbags to mis-deploy in an accident and that can cause greater injury if they're trapped under a seat cover; it could also potentially result in a fire.the front side airbags are under the fabric on the side of the seat (where it says SRS Airbag). That fabric is sewn with a special breakaway thread that will allow the airbag to fill the gap between the seat and the door glass in a collision. If you put a seat cover over it then the airbag will inflate under the cover and push the occupant forward towards the front window while the seat belt is trying to hold the person back in the seat. It doesn't sound like a pretty picture to me.forget the seat covers.hope that helps
