Does anyone else feel the arm rests on the door trim and the center console are too low? I feel like they need to be an inch or so higher than they are.
Maybe we can design something to bolt-on top of them.

For the center arm rest. I agree that it is kind of low for some people who have short arms/long torsos, or whatever. When I had a 04 Forester XT, the arm rest was low. I bought a Subaru part that extended the storage area, in which that lifted the arm rest. Maybe in the future there might be an aftermarket part or Ford might realize that and come up with something.

I felt the same way when I test drove one. I don't think it's a height issue. I think it's a mix of torso length arm length and how much junk you got in your trunk...lol.

But yeah armrest felt way too low.

Absolutely. Coming from the F-150 you have to lay down on your side to reach the center arm rest.

I have been driving my wife's 2014 jeep patriot to get me used to the smaller interior from the 2008 mariner. It also has a lower armrest.
