We have a cheap and ancient 2001 Civic LX that my kids have used for getting to school. The front bucket seats both have fold down armrests. We have a 2011 Odyssey, both front seats have fold down armrests. After just coming back from a 700 mile trip last weekend I realized how much I miss those armrests on a long drive, they are perfect for resting my hands and arms in a comfortable position for long periods of time. In my Clarity the left side of the door is a little too far and too low to rest my arm, the right side console is also not right for my right arm. I miss those armrests.
