World's worst seats!!
By APH on


2009 Toyota Prius 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I must say that overall I'm quite happy with my Prius-look, performance, gas mileage-but what the heck was Toyota thinking with those seats?! I eagerly took my brand new Prius on a 200 mile r/t roadtrip (one I do every month) to upstate NY. About 1/2 hr into my ride my back started hurting and my tailbone began throbbing. By the time I got back home that evening, I was in serious agony! I can't believe Toyota put so much attention into the technology-bluetooth, reverse cameras, smart key, the entire hybrid system-and the seats were just a mere afterthought! No lumbar support? Really???? Now I'm in the market for some seats that don't feel like rocks so I can tolerate my 80 mile r/t commute!

Best Features

Navi, bluetooth, spacious interior, gas mileage

Worst Features

SEATS! Save yourself a trip to the chiropractor and wait for the 2010.
