I am also tall. In my 9-5 the headrest rests against my back and I believe in a collision the active headrest will break my neck. I bought a Saab because it is one of the few cars where my head does not hit the roof. Saab will supply peddle extenders for short drivers, and seat beat extenders for fat drivers and I have see other companies supply devices for one handed drivers. Why, couldn't Saab help tall people? If someone knows about a solution to my problem I would like to hear it.
