Default Leather Seats and Child Car Seats

In a few weeks I will be getting my new 05 PT Cruiser GT with leather seats, and I know with a cloth seats, the car seats will show the marks from the car seat frame. What should I use under the car seat with leather seats? Does a thick towel will work? I know that many stores does sale some kind of plastic to put under teh car seat, but that is only god when the children drops food.Any suggestions will be appreciate it.

For my two grandkids the child seats are placed on vinyl pads that you can buy (for that purpose) at WalMart. I also have leather and these pads work great.

The DMV in California gave out small sheets of that foam-type material that you can use in kitchen drawers to keep stuff from sliding around - was really cheap to buy a roll but they were using it for demonstration at a "Buckle Up for Safety" demonstration and free "car-seat clinic." We had leather seats in our Stratus (and also now in our Sienna) and the stuff worked wonders! It keeps the car seats from moving around and we never did have any scratches from the carseats. If the car seat is properly installed, your seats should be fine and they won't move, but the skid protection is fairly inexpensive and should preserve your seats.

Most department of transportation folks (police and the likes) will advise against using a towel or fabric that could slide on the seat, in the event the childseat has been inappropriately installed or insufficiently tightened down (i.e. seat belt used to secure the carseat was not pulled as tightly as possible to keep it from moving).
