Unfortunately for you, what you want is not what everyone else wants and despite the internet we unfortunately don't have a portal to just order and build a vehicle like they did back in the day with paper and a salesperson assuming that is what they used to do before the 90s.I think the industry definitely requires coaxing to improve safety and fuel economy, but the rules haven't always been implemented properly. For example, the first generation air bags were designed to protect a rather large UNBELTED male. This resulted in unnecessary injuries to many smaller-sized people from overly forceful airbags (and I'm not totally convinced that this problem has been completely addressed). Also, the current efficiency rules are resulting in fewer non-turbo options and more reliability issues.
As far as having what we want, I'd say no, we're not even close. I want a manual transmission, and I want to be able to select the individual features I want in my car (for example fog lights and a CD player).
