Is reupholstering your car really worth it?

When it comes to protecting your car’s interior, do your best to keep it in top shape with a different kind of maintenance. You try not to spill on the seats and sometimes even use a seat cover. However, in real life accidents and wear and tear happen. So, what can you do if you have a tear in the upholstery or unsightly stains to look at every time you climb into the cockpit?

In other cases, people decide they don’t like the aesthetics of their car’s interior anymore. Maybe the black gets too hot in the summer and you want to reupholster it in a lighter camel color. Or it could be that your car is so old that reupholstering is the only way to save the seat cover.
