Headrest still too far forward

Tue Jan 19, 2016 11:02 pm

Even positioned all the way back, the headrest is still too far forward for my neck. Anyway have the same issue and found a replacement? Hopefully the hole spacing is standard, as I'm going to try various acquaintances' Headrests. Lol.

Looks like some folks with regular Souls have the same complaint. It stems from newer active Headrests requiring a certain angle to prevent whiplash. Some have gone so far as to reverse their headrest and straighten the two metal bars.

Yes, this has been bothering me too. No solution, though.

I flipped the headrest around. If know it's not as safe, but it's much more comfortable and my posture is better now.

I have the same problem (headrest too far forward). Apparently Kia doesn't study the ergonomics of headrest use.

Turning the headrest around sounds like a great idea. I will try it.
