2006 (8 years old), 80,000 miles. Not sure how long the tear has been there but it wasn't there at the last oil change (7500 miles ago).

Yes, the leather seat covers ARE expensive ($700-$1000 for the seat cushion cover). The other ones listed are cloth and leatherette (vinyl).

Yes, it can be done but I wouldn't put the old cushion in the passenger seat - I'd toss the old one and buy a new one - $150 online.
