    Headrest front seats

    Anyone know why some front headrests have a button to adjust frontward and backward and other have no adjustment. My buddy has an 07 with the button and i just bought an 08 and went to adjust the headrest and to my surprise no button. I can only move headrest up and down. I cant believe i cant move it forward or backward. Manual says you may have a headrest with button or may not

    jkinder33,

    I am sorry that you do not have this option with your Cadillac. Not all trim and year models were designed with the same seats. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    If I recall correctly, The feds imposed another new regulation around that time that mandated that head restraints had to be fixed to a certain distance between it and the seat occupant's head. This meant they could adjust vertically but not laterally. I noticed the change around that time in several rental cars I had.
    Another wonderful example of your "Nanny State" government telling you what's best for you & what you can have and not have.

    cadx6 Interesting. My buddy is turning in his 07. I may just ask him to swap before he turns it in so i can have that adjustment.

    I have a 2008 escalade sport luxury edition built in march of 2008 and I have the adjustments your talking about, when I installed the DVD Headrest monitors I ended up putting them on the second row looks awesome. If you notice the 2012-2013 has different full size headrests on the second row vs the 2007-2011 has the second row headrests like the third row smaller ones.

    In a way to cut their costs GM thought we did not need that adjustment anymore and took it away, kind of like the rain sensing wipers and heater washer fluid, but THEY DID NOT LOWER THE PRICE, IN FACT RAISED THE PRICE.

    I don't think it is regulations. the new range rovers and the ones preceding it have adjustable headrests.

    cost saving, they removed it to save money just like the rain sensing and heated wind sheild wipers.
