I rarely have rear seat passengers so I keep mine on the floor of the back seat... Vision is wayyyy better without those things up there...

I have no idea why they did not put a low profile yet still raiseable side headrest like the center one is...(or the european ones are)

those massive paddles they come with are quite the rear view blockers

The front were ridiculous too, until they switched to the four-way front restraint. My car is an early 2012 1st Job Focus and it has the ridiculous headrests.

Somewhere in the Job 2 2012 model (when Ford finally made Flex-Fuel models) they replaced the original restraint (as seen below) with an adjustable one...


They are a pain in the neck, (pun intended).

The ridiculous rear restraints kept their place.

not here in north america... I'd get them in a second if they were not insanely priced... so as it is I just yank them off and throw them on the floor... if I have passengers they can pop them in if they need it...

bloody stupid design they should be retractable like in the rest of the world or like the middle headrest is... if a passenger is in the back.. they are ok since the passenger blocks the rear view anyway... but seriously why is it north amercia has massive slab like paddles when the rest of the world have nice rests that can be dropped so as not to block rear view?

It would also be nice if the front headrests could tilt like the rest of the world too... I hate the sets in the car but just when I get the back to where it is reasonable, the headrest is pointed so far forward I can't use it in that position...

Love the car but really hate the seats and headrests

There's a lot I wish I could do but I still love mine as is. I'm just curious if anyone has found a reliable source for them.
