How do I adjust the head restraints?

Both of the front seats have head restraints, which provide added security to your head and neck during an accident. The head restraints adjusted anytime a new driver or passenger uses the vehicle. To increase the height of a restraint, lift it straight up. To decrease the height, press and hold the button at the base of the restraint, and push the restraint straight down. Tips You should adjust the height of the restraint such that the center of the restraint is at the same height as the center of the occupant’s ears.
