I found the thread indicating the Prius is notoriously BAD for someone with a back problem, and I can attest to that. It\'s time to trade for something different, so I don\'t want to make the same mistake. Any suggestions? We are empty nesters now, though having 4 doors and being able to take folks with us is nice. One of us has a Leaf (love it) but can\'t go on a long trip with that! Thanks for the help.
