I would guess that 100% of the people that use an automobile will agree that the design of the door must be changed. Everybody has been a vitcum of the automobiles bad design doors.
I've sent letter to auto makers for years about this. I have seen some smart aftermarket designs over the years. But the auto makers still are not paying attention.
Yes I understand our safety designs and structures. but we have better materials and tools to do better.! Every year I see the new cars come out just like the years before with a stupid door deign.
The gull wing design is ok but not the answer. For sure not the answer for an SUV. OMG Teslas SUV is the dumbest SUV design. I am a surfer and a doer. I like to put a rack on my car so i can toss a large items like a surfboard, ladder, xmas tree, whatever on the roof and go. So the gull wing is not ok.
The auto door really needs to transform! Maybe hide under, or on the side of the auto.
I love the first mini van sliding door! This was a smart step in the automobile world but it was never designed into a functional way for all vehicles. That is a huge mistake for the well being of the consumer.
Please read this and understand I am trying to help you, help me, and this will help all.
May peace be with You.
