7 low-cost ways to spruce up your used car

Seat covers
4 of 9

According to Domingo, seat covers are relatively inexpensive and easy to install, and are one of the most dramatic ways to impact the interior. Available in a variety of materials and colors, they can be cheap or expensive. For $200 to $1,500, you can install good to excellent covers.

Memmolo adds that you can take things a step further by replacing the seats entirely. Salvage yards dismantle used cars, and with a little phone work, you can probably find reasonably-priced, leather replacement seats. Again, use restraint. But you should be able to find a set of seats for $1,500 to $2,000.
