Fully adjust the head restraint before you sit in or operate your vehicle. This will help minimize the risk of neck injury in the event of a crash. Do not adjust the head restraint when your vehicle is moving.
The head restraint is a safety device. Whenever possible it should be installed and properly adjusted when the seat is occupied. Failure to adjust the head restraint properly could reduce its effectiveness during certain impacts.
Adjust the seat backrest to an upright driving position before adjusting the head restraint. Adjust the head restraint so that the top of it is level with the top of your head and as far forward as possible. Make sure that you remain comfortable. If you are extremely tall, adjust the head restraint to its highest position.

Tilting Head Restraints
The front head restraints tilt for extra comfort. To tilt the head restraint, do the following:
- Adjust the seat backrest to an upright driving or riding position.
- Pivot the head restraint forward toward your head to the desired position.
After the head restraint reaches the forward-most tilt position, pivoting it forward again will then release it to the rearward, un-tilted position.
