Then don't buy a Lotus.
Maybe the "new" Lotus will be more like what you want.
Seriously some of these other posts are overly dramatic. Driving is statiscally dangerous and if safety is such a high concern then a Lotus is not for you for many other reasons beyond an oil line failure.
Ummmm... Who are you? I love when some random person try to use the "maybe a lotus isn't for you" technique for any situation. There was probably no one who research Lotus more than me before I bought. That doesn't excuse the fact that this car has problems that no car should have. And.... ummm... yeah I'm done talking.
