Until bad software causes so much automotive mayhem that mass recalls are required and class-action lawsuits emenate, the industry will continue to ship crap software.

Remember that this is the same industry where at least 1-2 of the big U.S. carmakers used the "Is the cost of a recall > cost of lawsuits? If so, then don't recall" And where only a couple years ago Volkswagen deliberately changed their software to allow illegal levels of automotive pollution.
