Are there any small cars that are short people friendly? The new "active restraint" headrests force my chin into my chest. I have looked at Subarus and the Fit. Thanks

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Georgia Brown, Director of Education at National Independent Automobile Dealers Association (NIADA) I totally understand!! Although I am short, my daughter is even shorter, 4 foot 10 inches. We both have to look at that when we are choosing cars, even a car to rent while traveling. Her best solution has been a 2008 Honda CR-V. When she drove a VW Beetle she resorted to a somewhat flat pig pillow that gave her enough height! Hope this helps!! Georgia NIADA
