    Does anyone have a suggestion for ripped seats?
    Should I look for a place that fixes them or are new
    ones better?

    I would just get seat covers. New or repaired seats can be much more
    expensive, however if it is so bad that the springs are poking thru, then
    you have no choice. AutoExpressions makes some good seat covers.

    I picked up a very inexpensive beauty at a salvage yard. I found
    one with very little wear and tear, where I believe a tiny teeny
    gal totaled her car and who couldn't have weighed much as
    compared to me & my fat butt. I hope she/they were OK from the
    accident. In fact, going through that salvage yard really
    bothered me. I started thinking about how many people must have
    gotten seriously hurt to produce so many wrecks in that salvage
    yard. Really bothered me. Anyway, for me it was way cheaper to
    get one there as replacement material/cloth alone was a lot more
    expensive that what I paid at the junk yard. Think I paid 25
    bucks or so.

    Hmmm... I usually think 'damn these were nice cars at one time'.

    quite the contrary, I think "Imagine how many of these Saturns gave their
    lives to save their occupants."

    You did good on the salvage yard seat!

    I've had the same thoughts when I pulled parts from a local U-Pull-It yard
    myself. The wrecks with the deployed air bags and shattered front
    windshields, but with blood stains on the front dash, steering column, and
    seats bothered me the most. I recall wondering if the driver was wearing
    their seat belts and how badly they were injured.

    I think every 16-year old should be required to walk through a junk yard to
    see some of these wrecks BEFORE they are given their licenses.
