Don't even have my Palisade LTD yet (it is on order) ... but I feel like my kids are chomping at the bit to get at that BEIGE Nappa Leather in the LTD !
Gonna need some covers for sure ... but not seeing that any of the usual cover manufacturers have Palisade Custom Fit Covers available yet.

Anyone out there found any Seat Covers that fit ... and somewhat color match the BEIGE nappa leather Limited seats?

Prefer a seat cover that is liquid-proof ? ... Cheers!

I looked into Covercraft.com. Wide selection of custom seat cover made various materials. A bit pricey for me but then again we have a Honda minivan that we use for child transport so the issue is not critical for me.

Any luck with seat covers?
hello JS.
We ended up with (from AMAZON) the " GORLA UNIVERSAL FIT WATERPROOF SEAT COVER" (in beige) ... $30 bucks for each captain chair.

They aren't ideal, but they are neoprene which seems to be doing an OK job of protecting.
By the way I have nothing protecting the rear bench seating ... I just don't go back there to see the damage o_O !

I am concerned that the backing material may leave residue on the leather over time (particularly in 100+ degree heat) ... however, that is a concern, not an actual real problem.

Reality is, these Nappa leather seats are just too nice to be pummeled by kids ... I don't think anything is going to defend 100%.

If you find something better please advise. Good Luck and enjoy the PAL ... it has been a superb vehicle for us so far!!

We currently serve a 4yr old and a 1yr old and they both ride in their respective car seats... purchased SEL with beige leather seats... training has been rocky but we're confident that the girls will be trained to respect daddy's things */crosses fingers, toes, legs, arms, neck/* ?

You cross your neck? Ouch...

I have recently bought a set of these for my Limited with the light interior. I feel that they are more than adequate to protect the seats considering the relative inexpensive price. The bands used to secure the seat cover are useful. The seat cover does not slide around during driving or even when entering or exiting the Palisade. The color is such a close match that the cover blends right in and is barely noticeable. I have just completed a purchase for two more for the second row seats. My overall thought is that this product is a good value.

Hi. I bought some universal ones for the captains chairs on my limited but since the seat belts are basically built into the seat-bad design-they won't fit. My 6yo already has trouble buckling her belt since they won't pull out much. Any ideas? Thanks.

I just ordered a set for my Limited with beige interior. They send me a sample of the leatherette in sandstone, looks to be a shade darker than the beige interior but pretty close. They have good reviews, I spoke with Suki on the phone and she was really helpful. They're not cheap but better than having to repair the leather. I'll post pictures when they come in, but I'm not expecting them for 2-3 weeks.

They arrived about a week ago, took just over three weeks from order to receipt. Overall I'm pleased - the material is really thick and strong, should hold up to our dogs well. The color as expected is just a bit darker than the beige seats but doesn't look bad at all. The material is less slick than the leather so they tend to hold you in the seat a little better. Fit is an order of magnitude better than universal fit, but there are some areas that could fit a little better but again nothing that impacts the look or function. Some of that also could reflect my installation skills (or lack of).

After airing them out for a couple of days there is no noticeable odor coming from them. I've spoken to the owner Suki several times and she has been very helpful every time. I ordered extra material and built a simple box for between the middle row seats so the dogs wouldn't fall into the hole. Just ordered a set for our Kia Sedona as well. Be aware that the material is waterproof so it won't pass air blowing from the seat heaters/coolers but the air does cool the seats (haven't tried the seat warmers but I assume they would work as well, just not as well as no covers). The front seats include covers for the seat, back and head rests. The middle row comes with covers for the seat, back, head rests and arm rests. The downside is the cost - nearly $500 for two rows, but you could spend that on a single repair if a seat gets torn.

I love the Nappa leather seats. Why save the seats for the next owner? Enjoy the feel and the ventilation feature. Leather cleans up easily enough but I could somewhat understand covering the 2nd row if you have little kids. My kids are old enough now I don’t worry about liquid spills; I had a minivan for that and I never covered the leather seats in the van either and they looked as good as new after 125k miles before I sold it.

I kind of had the same thought and then saw your post. Why cover these beautiful leather seats with cheap cloth particularly the front ones? Might as well get cloth interior then. That's just my thought. Also, would these covers affect the seat heat/ventilation?

I guess we all have our rationale for covering the seats or not. My situation is probably different from yours - we're retired and travel a lot. We take our dogs with us - I'm not so much worried about spills as I am about their nails tearing the leather. I had a Lexus LS with similar perforated seats that were damaged by my dog's nails. That single repair cost more than these seat covers, and then after paying that money the seats were still susceptible to damage. The guy that did the repair told me his shop probably repairs a dozen or more seats a month, most of them perforated leather. I usually keep my cars at least 10 years, and I don't want to drive around in a car with ratty torn seats, not to mention take the hit when I sell it. To me covering the seats is no different than using all weather floor mats or waxing it occasionally.

These are hardly "cheap cloth" seat covers. They are a thick leatherette material with foam backing custom fit for the Palisade. They look and feel good. I made what I feel is the best choice for my situation,
