    I love my used 2016 Prius V except for the its interior rattle. Many times I thought about trading the car. I was driving recently when I looked in the rear view mirror and saw the larger back seat head rest shaking. The Prius has a smaller seat behind the driver seat and a larger seat behind the passenger seat. I stuffed a towel tightly in between the gap between the backs of the two seats. The annoying interior rattle has stopped!

    Maybe you should have your tires balanced.

    It's often the simplest things.

    I feel that is a design flaw. In most station wagons I have owned, the rear seats lock into a latch. I don’t understand why Toyota left those seats free standing. They shake like crazy and make those annoying sounds. Agree with you. Makes the car sound like it was cheaply made.

    I don't love my car but I have a v and the rear seats have never made a sound or shook and it has over 250,000 miles on it. Get your wheels checked....

    My 8 year old 2012 Prius v doesn't rattle either.
