I thought I might greet our new Subaru with a can of Scotchguard and spray the rugs and seats. But I can’t help but feel that it’s a huge amount of trust to put into a product, no matter how good. With me, often if something can go wrong, it does.
What I am considering is spraying the standard equipment front mats. Eventually I’ll get all-weather ones, but I figure the included mats have a limited life with all the mud and snow here. So would that make sense, or would you really spray the upholstery, too?
BTW, we don’t have kids, and our dog sits on a seat cover. The only real stains we’ve had in 7 years of owning our previous car are water spots.
Also, are the seats as they come from the factory considered totally unprotected, or is the overpriced dealer fabric protection just an additional layer of it?
