    Knowing that the seats are not really leather, does anyone have any insight on whether they will tolerate a heat gun for reducing the appearance of some indentations due to a car seat? Had to throw a car seat in without a protective pad underneath and staring at the indentations is going to kill me!

    thx!

    How long has it been since you removed the infant/child car seat? I had one in for a couple weeks while visiting my grandson and the indentations went away on their own.

    Put a towel under the seat. This helped prevent indentations in my Mazda for years.
