imageRecently the great people of Auto Accessories Garage reached out to me to test out the CoverKing NCAA Car Seat covers. At the time, I had no idea it would end up being a great product to save my seats from a car seat. Here’s what I think about it.

QUICK REVIEW:

Quality: A-

Utility: B+

Value: A+

Overall: A-

When I said yes to this product, I had been looking for something safe to put between the seats in back of my Chevrolet HHR and a Graco car seat. I was afraid the car seat would ruin the seats and the value of my car. This product really has helped.

I absolutely love that you can go to on their website, Auto Accessories Garage, and customize your vehicle, seats, dash, etc. For me, I chose to get the Auburn University covers. War Eagle!
