My VT Should be available for pickup on monday or tuesday and Im wanting to order some seat covers But I need to know how the back seat splits as I forgot to check this. Could someone run out to their car and look for me.

50/50?
60/40?
40/20/40?

If its a 60/40, which is the skinny side?

If ur gonna get seat covers, it maya be hard bc the reason the drivers side is 'skinny' is bc the center console with cup holders is connected to the passenger side (like when u go to fold them down). Im pretty sure the actual size of the seats is the same. But if u get a cover, it is going to cover the cup holders in the center.

I can mend the cover to not cover the cup holder, I just need to know which way it splits to get the appropriate cover to start with.

It looks like this would work since the zip off rear section accomodates for 60/40, 40/60, 40/20/40 or full bench, I would just need to cut out and hem a spot for the cup holders..

The leather in the back seat is really nice. My GF keep insisting on putting a child seat on it... I'll have to find a cover for it so the child seat dont screw it up!

Anywho, yes, skinny side is on the drivers side.

For my car seat I just used a beach towel folded a few times, catches crumbs and saves leather

If I'm not mistaken, somewhere in the Book it states not to put any seat covers on due to Air bags.. Not sure if this is a generic statement or if it actually applies to our VT.

Ill ask the dealer about that on monday when I go to pick up my car (Hopefully)
Unless the airbags are actually IN the seat I dont see them being an issue.

I could see where rear seat covers would affect the side curtain airbags deploying if it kept them from sensing a rear passenger.

But if the side curtain airbags need to be deployed and you have a kid in the back you are relying on the frame to hold up and the kid seat to do its job way more than airbags.

yeah, but then it becomes a warranty and/or claims issue.
Say you are in an accident and the airbags deploy but the seat covers prevent them from working properly I'm sure this would throw a wrench into claims. Lawyers will find any reason not to pay a claims.

I found a rubber seat cover mat in the baby section at walmart that has a strap that goes around the headrest and the rest is just a rubberized mat that lays over the front designed to protect seats from the carseats digging in.. This looks like itll work out for me..

Seat covers are one thing but a blanket of sorts should be fine. A traditional seat cover that covers the whole seat and is padded might interfere with the sensor in the passenger seat, but you would be able to tell if it interfered with the sensor by the dash light.

I scoured around and I can't find anything that indicates there are any sort of sensors in the rear seats that affect the airbag system.

This product seems like a cheap and easy solution for protecting the rear seat from your dog's nail and fur etc.. I checked the FAQ and it doesn't mention anything about affecting airbags or anything.
