    the systems impacts -- if cars are quieter, more comfortable, drive faster, have greater fuel efficiency, and there are good roads allowing them to go farther, it contributes to sprawl with large homes far from the nearest stores/work/schools which means that the individual car might be far more efficient per mile but the improved 'system' efficiency for an individual helps contribute to a societal land-use pattern that is far less efficient.  A real 'conundrum' to be understood but not exaggerated.
