    Seat Cover

    Does a seat cover (for a backseat) affect passengers who are not in car seats? If they are just buckled with a seatbelt?

    My sister is looking for one for the back of her 2005(?) Saab 9-3 sedan for her dog in the back. He does have a harness!

    Would it be okay for other people to sit back there as well?

    Anyone have a suggestion for which cover to get?

    Thanks!

    It is a "linear" sedan if that means anything to anyone... I don't know much about cars!

    I wouldn't think there would be an issue unless it affected the fit of the seatbelts. Also, a few models (usually luxury makes) may be equipped with side torso protection airbags that deploy fron the vehicle seat. If the Saab 9-3 linear has this feature in the rear seat, you would want to make sure that the seat cover does not cover the airbag. If such an airbag is present, there is usually an indication of this on the side of the seat with a warning label or airbag indicator.

    I'd check the owner's manual to see if they have any restriction on seat covers. If not, I suspect one of the Saab forums would have some suggestions on what type to buy.
