    Those seat covers just make me think back to my mom's 1989 Grand Prix. I swear it had the exact same seat fabric pattern and everything.

    Exactly! Good to know I'm not the only one getting "mom's old Chevy/Pontiac/Oldsmobile" vibe.

    Wow! I think they look fantastic. Kind of retro.

    Thats a beautiful dog also. I have the stock black seat covers and my Pitbull-mix sheds tan fur all over them.

    I've been lucky so far that the dog has not scratched up the fragile plastic on the doors.

    Thats the risk of having dogs in the Mirage, the plastic is extremely fragile and scratches up too easily

    They look great, and nudge them on a G4 listing.
    I think the fronts are probably the same as the standard mirage.
    If nothing else they could list only fronts and probably pick up some sales

    The fronts are the same. I replaced mine with G4 Seats.

    Thanks Scratchpaddy for the idea!

    I didn't love the pink/black seats when I bought the car, but it wasn't a deal breaker either. However, I do agree that the interior is kind of drab. I wasn't crazy about most of the Dash Designs offerings, but think I found one that feels somewhat modern and also brighter than stock. I really like how it gives the impression of some seat definition too, especially for that really weird flat back bench!

    Before (and with a sneak peak of after) (not sure how to flip that upside down photo)

    For reference, I got the Grand Tex black and grey design. I like how the grey roughly matches the A-pillars and headliner, though it isn't an exact match.

    The lighting in those last photos was near sundown so not great. Overall i'm pretty happy with the fit and finish of these covers!

    I bought the black neoprene covers a couple of weeks ago. I just need to install them!

    I didn't get the 2-tone because I wasn't sure how they would look. So thanks for posting those pics.

    I really like the look of your seat covers! I think the light color helps offset the otherwise dark interior of the car.

    I considered seat covers from this Dash Design (through RockAuto.com), but the number of choices sort of overwhelmed me.

    I paid off my 2017 Mirage ES last week, & I may celebrate that by ordering some new seat covers!

    Thanks for sharing your pics!!!!
