2011 Nissan Leaf: Could Use Some Flippers

May 05, 2011


The more time I spend with our Leaf, the more I like it. There are only a few things I could complain about, and those items are admittedly negligible. Case in point: the rear headrests.


I'd like to see them flip down out of the way when not in use (which for me is always). Our Mustang has flip-down headrests and I think it's a great way to maximize available rear visibility. If the Leaf had a rear center headrest, I'd consider flip-downs a necessity. Some people would go ahead and remove them altogether, but I hate having things roll about in the trunk or in the rear seats.
