It depends on the amount of recline you use on your seat back. Flat up and down is not the metric you should be using when adjusting your headrests. As stated, just pull the top of your headrests forward to reset them to the rear-most position. In theory, the amount of the distance between the back of your head and the headrest during an accident should be minimal, at least during a rear ending collision as it minimizes the distance your head moves before it is stabilized by the headrest.

the seat is barely reclined...I am Appx 5 1/2 ft tall...my head hardly touches the headrest at its most down position. because the top of the headrest on the pass seat, especially , is tilted forward , it inhibits my view out the back side. window...

I'm same height and find my adjustment works fine and is comfortable.

There are two adjustments to the headrest, height (up and down), and forward tilt. Have you reviewed the owner's manual fitment instructions starting on page 48? I've had no issues adjusting this to fit me, but then again I'm 5'8", though my wife is 5'1" tall, but she is able to adjust it to fit her.
