Seriously, the manufacturers are well aware of all those things. As a matter of fact, THEY discovered them, THEY developed them, THEY tested them... then they opted to use to various degrees or ignore those developments as MARKETING decided.

I disagree that cars are designed by "making a vehicle however you want to". It's just that they are not terribly interested in "our" segment- in particular "my" segment- as we don't spend much money.
