2010 Dodge Challenger Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012011

I purchased my Challenger in 2011 and quickly became aware that the headrest put my head in a very uncomfortable pushed-forward position. After many attempts at manipulating the seat position I came up with something that made it tolerable, but on any long drive (half an hour or more) I get a stiff neck and headache. I had no history of neck problems prior to this time. Over time I seem to have developed chronic neck stiffness, muscle tension and numbness in my fingers. My neck has now started cracking when I turn my head suddenly. It has never done this before, but it has seriously aggravated the problem. The headaches it causes are severe and can last weeks. I have noticed whenever I take a "vacation" from driving my car for several weeks at a time the problem improves. Just this week, though, my car has been in the shop and I have a rental, a 2013 Chevy Impala. This car is an absolute nightmare regarding head restraint placement. No matter what seat position I try, it pushes my head forward at a sharp angle. By the time I drive home from work - 20 minutes - I am almost sick from the discomfort and pain. Please, please, please... reconsider the legislation passed to make these new head restraints "safer" for me. I may never, ever be involved in an accident where I suffer whiplash injuries, but I am certainly feeling "whiplash" pain. I believe it is causing me permanent injury. There must be a compromise to make cars safer without chronic pain issues for their drivers. I have done extensive research on this issue, so I know I am not alone. I would find a new car, but all newer models I like seem to have this design flaw. I have no idea what to do, other than removing or modifying my headrest to try and get some relief. Surely a better rule is preferable to my solution which leaves me completely unprotected.
