    While they do take up half the volume of the cabin, those would fit me fine -- but what is some short person supposed to do w/those? If you were 5'6", your head would be underneath the restraint.

    That's just a cheap workaround for a stupid gov't nanny reg. There's no reason a height adjustable, pivoting restraint couldn't be made to work just as well. If the driver doesn't adjust it properly, that's their problem.

    Did you ever see this crash test of a 2009 Malibu vs. a 1959 Bel Air?

    This second video is a bit longer with passenger compartment shots.

    Really liked that second vehicle. You feel safe in an old boat just because of how big it is, never seen crash tests on old cars before though.

    When I bought my '11, my brother mocked my giant pillows. Of course, before I got it, I did too. I was going to retrofit older headrests but they used different size posts. grrr...

    What's the problem with large headrests?

    With the front seat up, it blocks a nice chunk of vision at an intersection. For clients in back, it reduces a LOT of forward visibility...
