2009 Hyundai Sonata. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle head rest the consumer stated she was involved in a minor accident in a parking lot. As she backed out of a parking space, seconds later she hit another vehicle that was waiting for another space. There was some damage to both vehicles. The consumer soon realized there was a blind spot caused by the head rest on the drivers seat. The consumer stated her view was completely obliterated by the head rest in the rear of the vehicle. The head rest lined up perfectly with the rear windows support on the drivers side and thus hid any car that would be sitting there.
