550 lbs of stones in the driving compartment is also not save unless secured. In an accident you would be in a blender.cooljw said:I have to move 550 lbs. of paving stones about 20 miles. I was thinking of folding down the rear seats and hauling them in the back of my Prius. Does anyone know if this much weight in back will be OK for my Prius to handle?
That's in Kg. In Lbs, it's 845. Unless you weigh 295 pounds (or have other passengers with you that total 295 with your weight), you should be fine, assuming your cargo is secured.ChasSuitt said::roll: Owner's Manual says 385# passengers and luggage.
I think my 2006 manual lists less.. like 810 or 820 or something.DanMan32 said:
ChasSuitt said:OOPS Danny... How right you are. My error... My Owner's Manual does say 385 kg = 845 POUNDS. Sorry 'bout that. 385 POUNDS really didn't make sense.
So... would you believe that's the first mistake I ever made?... well, would you believe the second?.... [In the spirit of "Get Smart"]
MY rear was saggin after I loaded and unloaded that stuff...!Phish Phood said:
