Don't know why they are dreaded, never heard of that. But if you keep them inside the little strap on the side of the seat that helps keep them away from your neck. I'm 5'9'' and have no problem with them at all.

I kept hearing about the dreaded seat belt issue. Went to test drive a 16 GT, the seat belt did not bother my wife (5' 7") or me (6'0") at all. And we had the belt ran through the strap on the top side of the seat.

All belts end up choking me cause of my body type,
there are clips and seat belt extenders too
There are also issues with some of the holders being pulled away from the seats

Not to resurrect the dead entirely, but at 5'8", 215lbs, the seat belt digs into my neck. Same for my dad, who is 6', 245. Maybe it's just because we're fat, the belt is riding up.

To answer the questions - yes, I use the seat belt retainer.

I reckon I'll buy some seat belt pads one day.
