2016 Toyota COROLLA Seats Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemHeadrest angle. It is my understanding from my experience that all car headrests now induce neck pain thanks to nhtsa's terrible regulation mandating that headrests be angled or have a minimum distance to the head to reduce whiplash. This mandate, while well intentioned, is horrible for any kind of driving in the vehicle. If i attempt to sit straight up in any new car the headrest always hits my head before being able to completely rest my back against the seat. The headrests, no matter where they are positioned, hit my head first and cause it to tilt downward when attempting to sit straight causing neck pain while driving. Every car i have driven (this 2016 toyota corolla included) whether it be a rental or test driving a new car, has induced neck pain by simply trying to sit properly in the seat. I do not have such issues with my older vehicles (2006 toyota corolla and 2004 honda element) the only way to alleviate this discomfort i have found is put the seat at an incline such that my head does not come close to touching the headrest and i know this is not safe. Please consider changing or modifying this regulation. It is quite ridiculous and i have met many others who share the same problem.
