Airbags and seat covers warning:

Airbags and seat covers warning:

Just got an IQ and love it. I want to protect the seats from getting destroyed like they did in my last vehicle. Normally I,would simply buy seat covers,

--but the IQ has two airbags in each seat and it could be dangerous to cover the SRS

Does anyone sell a seat cover that is compatible with the IQ?Thank you in advance for the reply.

Its not just side airbag, the IQ has one airbag in the bottom where your butt sits, and I think one toward the front of the seat bottom.

But more than the stellar safety features are the 11 airbags that come standard that come standard with the 2012 iQ, including the world's first rear-window curtain airbag. Other airbags include driver- and front-passenger airbags; driver- and front-passenger seat-mounted side airbags; side curtain airbags; driver- and front-passenger knee airbags; and a Scion-first driver seat-cushion airbag.

The side airbag is the only one a seat cover needs to be designed for. The one in the seat doesn't pop out it just balloons the seat to give full support in a crash.

As Bohemian said above, the side airbag is the only one you have to worry about as far as seat covers go. Before purchasing ask the manufacturing company if they do indeed comply with airbags in the seat.

Pecca leather did mine and they provide all compliance needed for the iQ.

My hubby and I were just discussing about that air bags concern. I think I'm gonna have to save up for those Pecca leather ones unless someone else comes up with a cheaper SRS compliant one.

Are you only looking for leather? My Wet Okole's are SRS compliant.

Your correct on those very inexpensive covers. I asked them a question about that a while back and just finally got a reply. Not airbag safe..
