Elantra 4-cyl

The headrests push my head forward into an uncomfortable & unnatural position. I am a 5'4" smaller framed driver. When seated, my head is pushed so far forward that my line of sight is the steering wheel and dash, not the road. This makes me have to continually lift my eyes from their natural position to view the road. When trying to turn my head to see while driving, the natural turning motion of my neck is hindered with limited range of movement and awkward unnatural movement angle causing slower head rotation. The angle that my head is forced into interferes with comfortable natural breathing. I don't know about the safety of these headrests for short drivers in the event of an accident, but these aspects of newer styled headrests distract & interfere with my safe driving. The best way to avoid an accident in the first place is to be able to drive without interference & distraction. During & after my driving trip: My eyes were tired from being forced to look upward constantly to see the road, instead of being positioned in a natural forward view. My neck was tired from being forced downward, having limited range of motion and from the extra friction & effort when subconsciously attempting to put my head into a natural head position, but being hindered by the seat when I had to check for other vehicles at intersections, during lane changes and simply trying to look forward naturally. I was distracted by my discomfort in breathing for my entire trip by the strain/pressure in my neck/throat area that interfered with my breathing. I was distracted by my glasses sliding & interfering with my view because of the downward positioning of my head.
