Head restraints (hr) do not work as described on pgs 14 & 104 of owners manual. I have a long torso and the fully extended head restraints hit me below the bottom of my skull. From the top of the fully extended hr there is still 10" to the roof. I called the local dealer & Honda am about alt. Hr's with longer posts. I was told none exist even though I can't comply with the safety instructions of their manual. To me, Honda can be suied for faulty eq. If I'm rear ended and received neck/spine injuries. The local dealer parts dept said I'm not the first to ask about the short posts on head restraints.
