Each front seat has a head restraint to help protect the driver and the front seat passenger in the event of an accident. When you get in the vehicle, you should adjust your head restraint so that the top of the restraint is at roughly the same height as the top of your head, as this offers the most protection during an accident. To raise a head restraint, simply pull it upwards. To lower a head restraint, press and hold the button that is located where the restraint meets the seatback. While holding this button, lower the restraint with your hand.
