Hello, Based on my stupid thread title, yes I am a stupid newbie. Which years of Prius do NOT have fold down rear seats? I remember reading on this board while doing a search to try to answer my question that some don't have fold down rear seats. I couldn't pinpoint to a particular year range, but it only seems to be the 2001 - 2003 body style. Is it all of them that don't have this option? That would stink if it were true, however, I won't be able to afford a 2004+ so I won't have a choice. BUT! If at least some 2001 - 2003 might have folding seats, then I should be ok. Yes, I searched. The harder I looked for an answer, the further away my search results got. It was only on accident that I learned the back seats do not fold down on some years (it was one of those "what do you hate about your Prius" threads).
