True. And to be fair, the MTFB of a lot of components increased drastically. But some key systems should remain de-coupled from the power supply. Steering works w/o engine or electrical power; so should all brakes without reverting to a default "brake on" switch.

The large infotaiment/HVAC dash is also a mistake IMHO. Single point of failure for a critical system - defogging and defrosting. Anecodtal occurence, but there is a local Legacy here where the screen/system froze (reboot tentatives failed), on a winter morning. The owner couldn't go to work because the car was unsafe to drive.
