Front seat belt height adjustment

Am i missing something or does the seat belt have no height adjustment? The belt rides right on my neck and it would be great to adjust it but there is no mention of it in the manual.

The guide that holds the seatbelt has a ratchet function so that you can rotate it up or down.

I agree that the seat belt mechanism is trash. It is probably my biggest gripe about the car outside of the quiet exhaust (first world problems). Whoever designed it needs to be reassigned or fired! Why make it only ratchet up? The only place that it stays securely is the top most position. I have to adjust it constantly. If I move it down and then lean forward it locks right back to the top most position and begins chewing up my neck....

I adjusted mine once and haven't thought about it since. Have you tried a different seat position?

I have not. I am not in any type of extreme seating position. I am 5'11 with longish arms. Where did you reposition your seat belt to? Does it move up if you lift up on the belt? Even putting my belt on will sometimes lock it back into the top position.

I'm 6'1 with a 6'5 arm span. I've got my seat height set where my arms rest comfortably in the arm rests on the door and console. I drive with my head against the rest unless I'm headed for a bump. The guide is in the upper position but the belt isn't near my neck. My legs are long so I've got the seat height set where I have some bend in my knees.

Have you tried telescoping the steering wheel in instead of moving the seat back? I'm 5'11, have the seat lowered all the way to the floor, seat belt guide is in the top position, and the belt still doesn't come anywhere near my neck.

I adjust the seatbelt ratchet function down but as soon as its released when you exit the vehicle, if adjust back up. So each time I go to / from car I have to adjust or am I missing something?
