Companies normally avoid doing that because it costs a boatload of money. First Honda halted the redesign in 2009 to shorten the car and reduce content, and now they redesigning it again to fix the problems that created.
Basically they've flushed a few hundred million dollars in R&D money down the drain only to make the car what it should have been in the first place.
