Q: How to keep 2017 Prius hatchback from opening so tall? I am short and can't reach to close.

asked by on

How can one shorten the opening space of a 2017 Prius hatchback? I am short and have trouble reaching the hand slot to close the hatchback. I am considering buying this new Prius but need to solve this issue first. Dealership has no solutions except putting a stool in the trunk and hauling that out to stand on and close the hatchback door. I'm too old to try that solution!
My car has an automatic transmission.
