The model year 2000 center headrests are often removed by owners because the headrests block the rear view mirror. A safety features becomes a safety hazard. I removed mine and just keep it as a spare. I wouldn't spend too much on one as it will most likely just be removed again.

If you keep the rear headrests all the way down, except when someone is riding there, and you adjust the rearview correctly you'll find that the rear headrests are barely visible. That way you wouldn't need to defeat a major safety feature of your car.

Not true. I just reinstalled my center headrest and verified that it blocks a significant portion of the rear view even when positioned all the way down. I don't know what you mean by "adjust the rearview correctly", as setting the mirror isn't rocket science.

I am a "ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" type of guy and so I say it is better to have the visibility to avoid an accident in the first place. Besides, I can always reinstall the center headrest at a moment's notice so there has been no real compromise of a safety device.
