So I'm curious. What have folks put into the hatch of the CR-Z? What can you get back there?

Post a pic! Try to outdo each other. :thumbsup:

Back when I was in college, I could stuff the wood to build a loft for my dormroom, a TV, mini-fridge, microwave, clothes and books into the back of my CRX. I'm sure you can get more stuff into a CR-Z.

Have at it! :hi5:

Fours wheels and r-comps, jack, impact wrench with socket, torque wrench, gloves, air gauge, extra impact wrench battery, and a helmet. At least for the next two days I am.

Nice. Great photo. That's what I'm talking about! ;)

Might wanna keep an eye out for accidentally getting tread marks on your headliner. I put tires in trashbags to keep things clean.

I got my old Dunlops in the back of my CR-Z when I went to the Ecopias. Arranged them flat in pairs, along a diagonal. Impressed that they all fit.

I have a tarp under everything and wrapped over the tires. The tarp sits between the tire and the headliner just for that reason.

Gotcha. I could see the tarp behind the seats, but that tire behind the driver looked a bit close!

While not an impressive photo op, my large dog rides back there on an almost daily basis. She's a large mixed breed (Germ. Shep/Border Collie type). My daily commute with the dog is 75 miles one way and she loves the Z as it puts her in a higher location with better visibility. She's 14 so has to be lifted in and out or I bring her telescoping ramp, but she really does love this car. We also have a 370Z in the family, but she hates riding in that as there is just not enough room, but with the CRZ, she can get up and turn around easily plus there is room for her memory foam bed.

I've also had a road bike in the back several times (front tire off and carried in a padded wheel bag), and on one recent trip, I had the back filled to the hatch and the front seat full too. Now I wish I had taken a picture that time.

I installed a full sized black rubber mat over the carpet and under the cargo tray, plus keep 2 towels in the back to pad any bulky items. We're pretty careful with all the cars and they stay amazingly new looking in spite of being workhorses.

Computers.. lots of computers all the time.

But they like to slide around. Does anyone know of anything to make the plastic floor/cargo mats less slippy? My sub already has a big chuck missing out of it from a computer case slamming against it.

What I have done in some cases is to strap in big items. If you fold down the cargo divider/rear seat it gives you two nice anchor points on the frame where the seat latches and you can put a rope around the latch point for the rear hatch and still close it easily.

Unfortunately no pics, but the "biggest" things I've hauled:
-5' tall Christmas tree
-4 OE tires (when had the snow tires put on)
-2 Fenway Park stadium seats

Normally the only thing back there is a box that has jumper cables, washer fluid, collapsible snow shovel, ice scraper, bungee cords, extra quart of oil, etc. Since it's now getting nice here, will remove the snow removal stuff soon, and will probably be replaced with softballs, extra running shoes, roller blades, skateboards, and various other summer paraphenalia. :)
