#1 of 43 Dog question
Jul 29, 2007 (10:04 am)
Hi: If the back row seats of the Prius are lowered, could I fit 2 labrador dogs in the back? Do the seats drop totally flat on the floor? Does the tail gate open to let them out or only the back window open? Appreciate it. Lawrence

The rear seats fold flat with the hatch floor. The hatch opens, the hatch glass does not. Also, it's very difficult to open the hatch from the inside, so consider it outside open only, and as it's electric release, it can only be opened if the 12v battery is ok or the car is on.
I mention this as a warning, if a light is left on overnight and drains the 12V battery you can't open the hatch until you "boost" the car from the front underhood fuse box.

I'm expecting twins in November. Will the Prius fit two rear facing car seats and a double stroller? My other half wants a Honda Pilot. We live in San Francisco and it is tough to get around/find parking with an SUV. Am I crazy to think a Prius would work?

Does the stroller fold up? Head out to a Toyota dealer with the stroller and try it. One member of Priuschat carries two children in car seats in the rear. The car has three "hold-downs" for car seats on the back of the rear seat. The Prius cargo room is comparable to a Camry, just for reference.
Oh, and everybody wants a SUV, but they don't all want to pay the cost.

#6 of 43 Interior space - Prius 2007 vs Prius 2008
Aug 10, 2008 (7:48 am)
Is the front seat legroom different in the 2008 Prius vs. the 2007? I sat in a new 2008 and my legs were very cramped (I'm 6'6") but when I sat in a used 2007 there seemed to be more room. Vehicle specs for both years show the same amount of space, so I'm wondering if there is a slight difference in how the seats are set, etc. Does anyone know if there's a difference? Any input will be greatly appreciated!

Long story short, I used a windshield cover, rip stop nylon, during the last ice storm. Well, it was rain and it rained. The cover wicked in water and things got soaked. I was able to clean and dry the passenger side; removed mat under the liner and dried everything. The driver side....I can not remove the cable release for the gas cap door. I have taken off the screw, but is does not move - I can not get under the mat without removing that. Ideas? Thanks.

If this was me, I'd call the dealer before I made things worse.
I'm glad to read your post. Sorry for your problem. I've been covering my car with 2 tarps keeping snow and ice off. I'm glad I did not do what you did though it sounds simpler. Good luck!

I bought this windshield cover at WalMart, this was not something I did on my own. It covers the windshield and has a flap on each end with a suction cup to attach on the inside of the windshield to keep it in place. The door gaskets must be crap; for a thin piece of nylon to allow water to run in thru the gaskets like that. But, I still need to know how to remove that gas door release... Thanks.

I read your posts on the other forum. Isn't there a link on how to do things? You've posted there so someone should have mentioned it. Is there a Prius manual perhaps at the dealer? Good luck and post here or there if you get it figured out.
Thanks again about what you did. If I'd seen it in Walmart, I probably would have picked it up.
