i just thought to myself, i more then likely wont have more then 2 people in the car, how many of you 3 door owners ride with the seats folded down?

I know you'd get alot more cargo space, but do you feel its more practical? or do any of you 3 door owners actually use your back seats?

reason i ask is because i thought to myself, instead of putting my pitbull in the passenger seat and he has already dirtied the grey part of the seat, maybe i can just have him jump into the back instead plus i have a ton of cargo room.

A week after I picked mine up, took the wife on a 5 day camping trip. The back seat folded down and I fit a 10-man tent and enough equipment and food to last us the week, and I still had full view out of the rear window. But I normally drive with the back seat up. Most of the time it's just me, or me & wife, but a couple of occasions I've had three or four people in the car. It's easier just to leave it up and put it down when we need to.

I've driven with the rear seats down most of the time since owning the car.

I personally like having mine up. mainly to look cleaner. also so I dont lose that hatch cover between the back seat and hatch door. I like the way it looks

well i definetly wont lose my hatch cover, i see how hard they are to come by with the old hondas, i can imagine how it would be with these in a few more years

I use my 2nd gen for my business and maybe 1 day every two months the seat goes up. When it is up most are surprised as they thought my yaris was a two seater. Only reason the seat goes up is for my girlfriends 5 year old niece and her booster seat.

Usually keep mine up also. Groceries don't roll all over the car.

even with a 5-door I had the rear seats down most of the time (when they were ever actually in the car)

why?

took my rear seats out a while ago, never going back in. I think i used them twice.

If I didn't have the bench seat (which doesn't fold down flat), I'd still most likely keep them up as I do now. I like the security of having them that way, keeps things in place in the hatch and away from prying eyes...

I bought a hatch so I could put my German Shepherd dog in the back. My seats have been down since I bought it.

yea, im going to end up putting mine down today. and probably give the car a wash, if weather permits. for some reason we have been getting alot of rain here south florida, mind everyone its only febuary and we never usually have rain this time of year.
