Anyone else have a vehicle with active head-rests and feels like their head is being squished towards their chest? (insert joke here).

On most other cars I have driven my head doesn't come in contact with headrest unless I really leaned back. Now, it's always there pushing into my head
A lot of cars I tried have now gone to that style. I know it's safer for whiplash, but wow does it suck.

I am wondering how standard the peg measurement for headrests are so that I could swap these out with an older more unsafe model by checking salvage yards.

Thoughts? Fixes?

Get in back seat.
Put headrest at least halfway up.
Put knee against back of front seat.
Grab headrest firmly with both hands and reef the **** out of it til the frikkin thing is at a more suitable angle.
Get out of back seat.
Adjust headrest height accordingly.
Drive.

I cranked the tilt all the way back and made a pad with 1 inch foam.....yes I can sew
Pad for the backseat? How much of seat did you cover? This is the option I was thinking about.

I tried turning mine around but it is too far the other way, feels like having no head rest at all. Sigh.

I mean did you pad the back of the seat to bring you farther forward on the butt of the seat as well?

The plus side I can get all the lumbar padding I want if I am going to make something myself. Hate to give up the back of the seat storage with a cover.

I padded between my back and the seat...sew the padding to the seat cover . I don't have the storage thingy...if I did I guess I would sew the cover to the seat after cutting the cover...or use velcro?
