I bought a new CRV this Sunday. The headrest is completely unusable!! I too have turned it around. I'm 5ft.7". I've always been told that it is important to keep your head, neck and spine straight. That's impossible with the head restraint in place. I push the seat back as far as it will go. I keep the seat back fairly vertical and with the head restraint in place, my chin is almost on my chest, and I'm looking straight at my feet!! Help???

I'm the same size and I couldn't be comfortable in a vertical seat back position(top position). In that position, you can raise the head rest to give the head more of a rearward position. Even in this position my head is near straight up. I have my seatback a couple of notches back and the head rest down low. I don't think my head "rests" on the head rest normally but does touch sometimes up high on the head. It's more of a safety item. it definitely doesn't push the head that much to have my chin in my chest.

It's a head restraint not a head rest. Position the seat so your head doesn't touch it, but comes close.

Try ordering a head restraint from Honda. They call them head rests.

It's a bit of semantics, but head restraints are typically cushioned and padded, making them useful to rest your head on. Edmunds likes to call them restraints, I call 'em headrests.
Whatever you call it, keep it lined up with the top of your head in case you have a collision.

I would try etrailer.com. They have a pet barrier that should work for the crv. I've bought a couple of hitches from them including one for my crv and I couldn't be happier. Also I have a card that they sent with my order with the code XBBJ7 it will save an additional 5% on any order that you could use.
