2014 Honda Civic Owner Comments

Civic 4-cyl

I leased a new Honda Civic and I can not drive it without excruciating pain in my neck. The headrests shove my head forward and I can not find a comfortable position. I am heartbroken, angry and in pain. After my first 30 minute drive in this car, I researched online this issue and there are thousands of americans with the same problem due to the new head restraint regulations. I certainly would not have signed a 3 year lease agreement if I had known that I was agreeing to pay thousands of dollars for three years of pain. I've tried adjusting the seat height, adjusting the tilt of the seat and the headrest height in every combination I can think of and all I can achieve is a barely tolerable driving position where I can barely see over the dashboard and the headrest is raised high enough that it doesn't touch my head - nor protect it as designed. I understand that this is mainly an issue with passive headrests and that the active headrests are a better design that stay out of the driver's space. My only option will be to reverse the headrest for the next three years and hope my car isn't rear ended. Although having my new car totaled would be a blessing because I would have a chance to find a vehicle to drive that doesn't hurt me physically. I see that these forward tilting headrest complaints online go all the way back to 2008 when the new regulations came out that forced car manufacturers to produce vehicles that torture a significant number of americans every year. I would have gladly paid $200 or $300 more for an active restraint system that stayed out of my way. The NHTSA should be ashamed for their disgusting callous disregard for the thousands of people who suffer every day due to these government-required headrests forcing their necks and spines into unnatural and painful positions.
