If you’re about to get a new car, some manufacturers make their headrests so they can be adjusted forward or back, as well as up and down.
Before concluding that the tilt of your headrest cannot be adjusted, it’s worth checking with your dealer. All too often the option is there but obscure and unknown to its owner.
Of course, height is also important. If you’re too short, the solution is easy – finding the right auxiliary cushion to sit on. If you’re too tall, sad to say, best option might be to trade in your car. But for your posture, sanity, and comfort, at least keep the following checklist in mind when shopping around for a new one:
- Fully adjustable headrest
- Height-adjustable seats
- Tilt and telescoping steering wheel
