My grand daughter has a Tc and because of my age,(72), I most likely would have to crawl in and out of it. My xB is just the right height for me. No excessive bending over.

Awesome Dale, hey I've read mixed things from the all weather mats, I've looked at the Weathertech ones "digital fit" and was wondering how you felt about them, if those are the ones you used in fact, or are you using the factory option ones?

Cheers!

I couldn't agree with you more on the ease of getting in and out of the vehicle, Very helpful for me now that I seem to get hurt more often than I am healthy. I'm a soccer coach and I carry a ton of gear with me sometimes, plus my little one and the car seat, so the maneuvering in the TC just got old real quick. I still miss that little car though. Here's a few pics that I took right before selling it.

Thanks for the love! I really am so happy with my xB, it didn't take long really to enjoy the differences and every day I find something else to like about it. I love all the little compartments placed throughout the car. I find different uses for them daily! Love love love my "xbox" lol.

Glad everything is working out for you. If you like compartments, you might look into the cubby nich nets that go in the rear quarter panels. On the subject of the floor mats,I had the weather tech digifit mats and although they are great for really nasty weather, they don't fit as I would like especially the rear "over the hump" one piece. I instead got the regular rubber mats.
If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask, the members are eager to help.

I bought the scion all weather mats, and rear cargo mat the fronts and cargo are great, but the rears are a waste. I then bought the weather tech rear seat one piece liner and it gives great coverage. Dale I also need to swap the wiper switch is there a particular year Prius we need to use? Tia.

OK. I did the research in the forum, and found the info. The first p/n is 84652-48180 for a Prius 2008 with symbols on the switch. The second is for the switch with lettering on it and is p/n 84562-48060 for a Prius 2005-2007. If you go to the site for the install, there is more info on the switches that will fit. When I got mine, I found it on E bay for ~ $40. Hope this helps.

Wow thanks for the info Dale! Seems trivial, but when that annoying slow rain comes I'm sure the multi speed intermittent part will keep me more sane. Lol.
