I have the Excel model of the Auris bought in Jan 18, which includes heated seats. At that time, I got some covers from fleabay.  They are quite thin and took 30 minutes to fit but they work.  I haven't had any problems.

I would think the manufacturer of the seat coverings are covering their backsides in case of a problem. Worse scenario I would imagine is having seat heater on high for a long time and in the worse scenario affect the material if it has a low flammability, in which case it could be grilled veg for tea 😵💫. If they not put a warning on, and you burn your veg then they are open for a claim, but that would be least of your problems.

What engine does your car have Filip?
If you have a problem why not start a new thread explaining your problem and see if anyone can help.

Are seat covers actually worthwhile?  I had a beautiful set made in moquet and very comfortable.  I removed them when I sold the car at 2 years old.  The seats underneath were filthy as dirt had got through the covers and not been cleaned by hovered the covers.

I had sun damage to the top of rear seats in two old cars 5 years plus and wear and seat belt damage in a leather seat after about 12 years.

Enjoy the covers provided by the manufacturer.

If your seats have airbags fitted in them, then you SHOULD NOT fit seat covers as they will restrict the airbags.

I know what you mean, I got it when it was 29k. Mine is a 1.6. Yes mpg is disappointing as it's nothing near the official figures. Mpg fluctuates between 41mpg in summer to 33 in winter.  I do like the car though because it's relaxing to drive and the Excel version comes with a lot of functionality which I didn't have in my previous car such as automatic reverse parking, reverse camera cruise control, speed limiter, auto lights, auto wipers, electronic folding mirrors, not having to take the key fob out of the pocket to open/close/start car etc.

The official figures aren't intended to represent what owners will achieve, but to provide a standard laboratory based comparison when comparing different models.

Honest John's Real MPG provides an indication of what owners acheive -
