My wife wants to get seatcovers for our Prius, we have the sidecurtain airbags and I noticed an SRS tag on the side of the seat. Do I need a special seatcover with this? In other words is there part of the airbag system in the seat? Or can I use any cover that fits?

Thanks

the side airbags (as opposed to the side curtain airbags) are in the front seats. you can find seatcovers that are made for this; they have tearaway panels so the airbag can blast through...

Search the archives for GT Seat Covers. You'll find discussion of colors, air bags, installation tips, materials.

Gotcha! I'll inform the wife that any seat covers need to be compatable with the airbags...

Thanks for the help :)

Seat covers w/Side Air Bag slits http://www.gtcovers.com

Check the http://www.gtcovers.com Website.

We have them on the front bucket seats of both our Prius, and the velour fabric is nice. They are tailored for the Prius, fit well and don't slide around. We have had other "one-size-fits-all" stretch fit covers that did not last more than a year or two. We expect longer life from GTCovers.

GTCovers will even send you sample color swatches if you email them your address.

Good luck.

I was under the impression that cars with the side curtain airbags also had seat airbags and needed compatible covers. Is this not so?
