Just like your sofa, office chair, or recliner, your truck and car seats wear out, too. If you keep your vehicles for a long period of time, chances are the seat has started to feel not as comfortable as when you first drove your new vehicle off the car dealer’s lot. When a vehicle seat wears out, it affects our driving abilities. Reaction times could be slower because we are uncomfortable and not thinking about driving, but about the soreness in our backs and necks.
Besides back and neck pain, stiffness, and soreness, other signs it is time to get rid of that old seat and order replacement truck seats, or car seats, include:
- Cracked/Ripped Seat Covering: If the vinyl, cloth, or leather covering is cracking or ripped, it is time to replace the seat, because moisture can now get inside the foam padding and cause it to deteriorate, as well as become an ideal breeding ground for mold and mildew.
- Sunken Look: If the seat no longer returns to its original shape, and it feels like you are sinking into it when you get behind the vehicle, replace it with a new one.
- Hardness: If the seat feels like you are sitting on a hard surface, because the padding is no longer reactive or has fallen out, it is time to order a new replacement seat.
- Broken Parts: If you can no longer adjust the seat, or it will not remain locked in place, you need to replace it, because a broken seat affects your safety and the safety of others on the road.
When selecting a new seat for your vehicle, consider the amount of time you are behind the wheel. Spending a bit more on a higher quality seat with extra padding and other features is well worth the investment if you spend a large amount of time behind the wheel.
