    You want to make sure that the seat cover does not block the side air bags. You have leather seat, why cover them all up?

    Thats exactly what I thought. If you have leather why cover them?

    I can understand possibly putting a simple taxi cab cover for the driver and one for the baby seat.

    yes there are holes where the air bags would deploy from. We wanted to protect the seats from the carseats. We move car seats around depending on the extended family we take with us

    We have these for the CR-V. However after reading that a very few people have issue with dye leaking, I now just re-use those water-proof pads that we used when my sons were still babies.

    I believe we have Eddie Bauers, transferred them from my old car, never dyed but had black fabric. I'll need to check the Odyssey from time to time. We also have light leather

    These work well at protecting the leather but are not too good at stopping indentations into the foam of the seats. I lifted up my car seat protector a few months ago and could see a huge indentation from the bottom of the car seat into the foam of the 2nd row center seat. I use this car seat protector:

    Thanks. Yes using the regular pads, I do need to adjust the car seat periodically since it moves a little bit. Not sure about the issue with indentations, don't they come back out? I like the idea of having foam at the bottom, but I am a little worry about using these in Houston in 90+ weather for more than six month of the yr.

    The indentations came back out on my old car after a couple of days, I hope it is the case here

    I was planning on buying some Wet Okoles, since I have them on the front seats of my Honda Civic and love the way they look, but geez - on these seats they look very amateur. I mean, the way they have the strap that comes down on the sides of the seats, it doesn't look like they were custom-designed for this vehicle. I understand why they are the way they are, but geez...

    (If I was more motivated I would attach a picture of how they look in my Civic)

    Wet Okole is a horrible company. OMG! So I've been trying to contact them since this install and I called a few times. I spoke with Sergio and told him about my concerns, I told him I had taken pictures since telling him about it won't really explain the situation. He said to email him the pictures and I will be contacted back. I emailed him the pictures 5 minutes later with my order number and contact information.

    Life continued to happen and I called once or twice since then and was told that they would have Sergio call me back. March 21 came around since this isn't really the first thing on my mind everyday. I emailed Sergio again, this time I looked up online and found Steven Grew's email from another forum at Wet Okole. I forwarded all the pictures again for good measure leaving.

    April 11th rolled around and I am starting to get upset. I filed a complaint with BBB and immediately the day after I received 3 calls, one was from Raul Lopez. He stated they couldn't find my order in the system and what not. They eventually found it and went over the email with the pictures with me. He told me that the 3rd row seat buckle was more then likely misaligned when it was sewn on, so they'll send me another bottom part of the seat cover. As for the misalignment of the headrest, he couldn't do anything about it. He told me to use a butter knife to insert all the fabric in between the plastic and the leather seats. I mentioned if I stretched the fabric for the headrest I would probably break the seam, but I would try it when I get a chance.

    Now it's May 2nd and I still haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Hey! I've got work and a million other projects around the house to do. Raul calls me about the BBB complaint still being open, I mentioned that I still haven't gotten to it and once I have the time to do it the way they recommended, I will.

    May 5th and they finally respond to the BBB complaint
    "Contact Name and Title: Tracy P. Willms VP
    Contact Phone: 949-433-0497
    Contact Email: tracy@wetokole.com
    Customer is stating to us everything is alright. I have givin the customer an option that I will even pick up the product via call tag and give him a complete refund. Please let me know this is cleared as the customer states he has removed the complaint. Tracy 949-433-0497"

    1st off, I did not state everything is alright. I spoke with Raul and told him I never got around to it, and when I did I would contact them again. ok fine, whatever. I email Raul again on May 13th with pictures stating that I can put the covers in between the leather and the plastic with difficulty and I can not pull the hole to align with the headrest post. And the seat cover that was suppose to be mailed out to me to replace the misaligned buckle was never received. I emailed again on the 20th asking for a response. On the 24th I asked for a reply from Tracy and this is the replied with this email.

    "I want my covers back. The straps as we continue to tell you go between
    your existing fabric and the plastics. You take off the buckle and put the
    strap through between the plastics and your existing material. From your
    pictures they look really nice. Then once it is through put the buckle back
    on. If you cannot do that then I want my covers back and I will give you
    100% refund. I will pick them up at your door free of charge. These are a
    seat cover not a complete re-upholstery job. I can only do so much to help
    you. We have continued to leave messages with both you and Hang; but you
    tell the BBB that we are not doing anything. Please respond!


    Tracy P. Willms
    VP Wet Okole Hawaii"

    This company is ridiculous. When I spend about $800 for some seat covers I expect them to be of good quality and have a decent fit. Not to mention some customer service. I am fuming. This company should not exist.

    Wow, sounds like a bad experience. Why not just order the OEM 2nd and 3rd row seat covers for a fraction of the price? Why do you need any for the front seats? Just to preserve them?
