I just bought an 011 Pilot this month and love the ride and the seats are fine for me, but i know what you mean about headrests. I rented a Ford Flex last year for a family vacation and my wife and I were miserable because the head rests push your head forward and give you a crick in the neck on long drives. Haven't done a long drive in my Pilot yet, but will keep an eye out for this... I think the problem is that the US govt. has asked car mfgrs. to redesign head rests to prevent whiplash, at the expense of driver comfort. Before you trade in your Pilot have you considered buying some older Pilot headrests on Ebay to see if they are more comfortable? This might be the answer for you, and I'll bet the holes will line up just fine. If that does not work, we rented an AWD Kia Sorrento last week for a trip to the Smokies and loved it. It was VERY comfortable and seemed really well made. Gas mileage on it wasn't great, but it was a solid and comfortable ride and the interior seemed well designed. I would have bought a Sorrento instead, as they are cheaper, but it is not big enough for our purposes.Report it
