Someone told me today to flip them around so they bend to the rear. That's an idea!

Yeah, like someone said above, if you're going to make all these mods to the head restraints, I certainly hope you don't get into an accident. If you do, I think whiplash is going to be the least of your worried!

These are absolutely the most comfortable seats that I have had in a car. Ever. The most comfortable part? The head restraints! I love them! I am 5' 9" and the way I have them adjusted they are at the exact perfect height and angle. Heck, I too could see myself easily falling asleep in this seat it is so comfy! I don't have that problem when I'm driving because, well, I'm driving so I am occupied and there is no danger of me falling asleep, but still. These are some seriously comfy seats!

I agree, the seats are super comfy and the head rest doesn't bother me at all (I'm 6'2"). I actually like it closer to my head because I put my head back without distorting my view of the mirrors, etc.

And yes, do not get into an accident, you're going to be in rough shape. You mind find yourself a recipient of the Darwin Award.

"Headrest delete mod." Now I'm just waiting for someone to list that in their signature.

In all seriousness though, has anyone tried fitting the rear center headrest into the other headrests? I might be interested in buying a couple more rear center headrests to use to give myself better visibility without losing that safety feature.

And if you get whiplash in an accident that's not your fault you'll have no case for your injury.

The thought of driving around w/o head restraints ranks right up there with the morons you see in the frt pass seat with thier feet up on the dash. If they survive the impact, it'd be loads of fun having the airbag slam your knees well past your ears. Yikes.......

If you have your seat adjusted to where your head is ACTUALLY resting on the head restraint, you are doing it wrong.

The new Focus has the best seats in this class of vehicle. I'm wondering if they'll fit in my car so I can grab a pair to replace my front seats! Any of you whiners want to trade????

Ouch, Bleed Blue! I've always thought about just what would happen in general in an accident when I see people sitting like that. Having an airbag crammed up your a$$ never even occurred to me!

And you are correct, whoever said it. You get so much as a little touch of whiplash, whether the accident was your fault or not, you get no settlement. No head restraints = no claim for personal injury because of your own stupidity!
