This is actually common on most modern vehicles. I first noticed it on VWs years ago. Basically, its called "Brake Proportioning". Imagine braking on a bicycle, too much front brake pressure and the...

Good idea leaving the headrests off the back seat, it looks great and gives you better visibility.

They aren't faded at all, it must be either a bad phone photo or they are caked with dirt/pollen, I generally have the top down most of the time.
