Has anyone improved their Prius Seat?
Looking to buy a Prius, but it doesn't have the lumbar support I prefer. Has anyone found an aftermarket seat? Or come up with another effective solution?
I drive a Prius at work and I take along my own lumbar cushion. This helps around town but not very effective for longer drives.

This might help.
I just recently discovered this issue in the two months after buying a 2014 Prius V 2.
Chronic neck and back pain that my chiropractor couldn't fix, because I was so locked up with muscle tension.
I swapped out a head restraint from my wife's Prius 4 passenger side, and that helped.
I added a Sacro-ease similar to this http://www.relaxtheback.com/mccartys...FYMF7Aod1DoA-A
Now I can at least tolerate being in the driver's seat long enough to get to a job.
I just saw this, it might work and it's less expensive than the Sacro-ease.
If you have time, please contact the NHTSA about this. Complain that the new head restraint and seat regulations are causing you pain and that seats should allow adjustment for different body types and postures. I just got off the phone with them and the rep said if enough people complain they might open an investigation. I know, it sounds like bureaucratic runaround but if lots of people let them know, it might work. It's probably the only way it will change.
I have also written my US Congressmen and Representative.
