Went over a bump; hazard lights came on and back seat headrests (and roll bar) deployed. Manual says the dealer has to fix; roof is inoperable while roll bar is deployed.
Twice going over speed bumps my hazards came on, my rear head rests came up and the top is inoperable.
Go to you tube to find a video on how to lower the rear headrests.
