    I just picked up a 2007 CRV and after driving 45mins home I had a
    stiff neck and backache I could'nt beleive. The headrest is angled
    right into the back of my head so I could not sit comfortably in the
    drivers seat. I tried adjusting the seat and headrest into different
    positions but nothing worked. Honda says they have not had any
    complaints about this problem. My daughter has a 2005 Accord EX so I
    swapped one of her headrest into the CRV. It was more comfortable then
    the CRV headrest but not great. I am looking for a compatable headrest
    that pretty much goes straight up from the back of the seat. Does
    anyone know if any other Honda headrest would fit into the new CRV or
    03 to 06 accords?

    Believe it or not, that is actually a safety feature. Active headrest, or
    something like that. The idea is that whiplash will be greatly reduced
    because your head is always resting on the headrest. Normally, this is
    not the case.

    I have an 06 Civic Si, and I find it uncomfortable only if I am on a long
    trip and try resting in the car. Otherwise, I have adapted...
