I am looking into purchasing a 2000 subaru Forester. The previous owner was quite the ... slob. The car stinks of smoke, and there are several burns in the seats and on the floor.

I contacted a detailer, and they can clean the interior, and remove the stench using an Ionizer for $60.

Any thoughts on what it would cost, ballpark, to repair 2 seats with 4 or 5 burns each, and the floor carpeting, with about 8 burns?

What does it cost to replace the seats?

In the end, I may just get some seat covers and floor mats, but wanted to get some feedback from others.

Check ebay for Leather Kits, replace all the covers for about $300 and your time.

Carpet is around 200 or find one used and clean it.

You can save some money by getting rid of the smell with Maguires Odour Eliminator, a hand pump spay in a transparent yellow bottle. Two applications in a used car I bought completely rid the car of all of the smoke odours. Get it where you can buy other Maquires products.
