Model 3 headrests too hard?


Mar 27, 2020
So I got my Model 3 on 3/13/2020 and I noticed the headrest on the driver side is very hard. It is not nearly as soft as the rear passenger head rests. Hitting my head on the headrest during rapid acceleration doesn't feel great, I expected more padding and just a softer cushion feel to it. It feels almost like a hard rubber. Anyone else notice this?

From the first day I drove my Model 3 almost 2 years ago I noticed that every bump transferred to my head through the headrest. So I stopped leaning my head on it and got used to it from the first day. I could see how it might be more difficult for some people to change habit or to even wonder why they should not use the headrest at all.
