    Seat material quality question

    To current owners of the Mirage, how are the seats holding up? Does the material seem durable? Do they clean up easily? Any issues yet? I tend to research everything to death before I buy a car but the seat material seems like they would last a long time if well cared for. The ES trim has the purple and black seats and the DE trim has a grey/black less fancy trim.
    Thanks in advance for any input.

    I have a DE trim Mirage and normal fabric seats. They seem to be ok quality-wise and are very comfortable. For the summer, however, I will try to add a beaded-seat cover to avoid being soaked after every drive.

    We have an ES with the purple/black seats. Material seems nice and seats are comfortable.

    Sat in a DE atthe dealership and thought the seat material was of good quality. The ES seats seemed to have a bit of nap to them.

    I'd say both trim levels offer good quality for the pricepoint ofthe car.

    The covers of the ES attract pet hair fairly easily. Other than that, no complaints yet.

    I have no issues with the seats but as said pet hair really grabs hold of the fabric, other than that very comfy.

    I plan on using Griot's Interior Cleaner to maintain them
