Your ability to see to drive
Your ability to see to drive was never considered when the testing was done for these headrests. It's so nice to know that our Government doesn't care if we can see to drive, only that the headrest does its job. Well I wonder how many accidents this will cause, not being able to see while driving. Only the jerks in Washington could come up with headrests that make it impossible to see to drive.
I sympathize and agree with
I sympathize and agree with all of you. My wife and I test drove a new CRV for 25 minutes. My neck bothered me for a week and my wife.....2 months. What I would like to know is who is the idiot or team of idiots at the DOT who failed to recognize that different people have different heights, neck lengths and body thickness. To use the common vernacular......one size DON'T fit all!!!!!! Once again government is dictating how we live our lives and it's a literal pain in the neck and or back. It seems that some common sense is in order here. Or perhaps a legally savvy entreprenuer could come up with some after market solutions. It is a shame that when you spend thousands of dollars on a new vehicle and have this kind of problem, the dealerships response is "sorry, there is nothing we can do". Let's continue our letters to the manufacturers and let's begin to write the DOT.
Thanks for your entry ... I
Thanks for your entry ... I am having the same problem, and it's driving me absolutely nuts with neck and back pain. For a few weeks, I tried a back cushion to push my body forward, but this option means I can't feel the seat warmers ... which was a key factor for me in making the purchase in the first place. Can I ask which dealer agreed to straighten out your rods?
With the concern of changing
With the concern of changing the headrest that the insurance company
may not cover you if you customize or change the OEM headrest. This
is not true, insurance companies cover thousands of Custom Vehicles'
So my word after talking to AAA Insurance they would still cover you,
so go ahead and make the headrests comfortable.
