Ok I have a million dollar question. Have you ever tried taking reverse in a packed traffic. Let's say you negotiated a U-Turn with less radius and then you have to reverse back and there are dozen cars waiting for you to do it soon. You slowly take reverse along with break and half clutch and suddenly the break Jams.. what will you do? I can live with steering rattle and less A/C, they are meant for comfort but you cannot compromise on break. Having said that I also agree with you that changing the style really fixes the issue. But then there are corner cases when you still hit the issue.
