I had a test-drive with the Prius and could not believe how bad the seat felt. It must have been designed by some sofa scrambling teenagers. They make absolutely no sense to my or my spouses back.

I have a 2010 prius and as a result of the uncomfortable seats, I now have bursitis of the hips. I was sitting all day in folding chairs for the past week, and my hips felt fine. My first day back in my prius and I'm in pain again. This is horrible.

I find my Prius (2008) seat to be quite comfortable. Have taken several 1,000+ mile trips with no discomfort whatsoever. And I have 3 slipped disks, and arthritic knee.
