Search eBay Motors Item Specifics "Placement on Vehicle" not working for some words

Isn't the reason for having Item Specifics entry "Placement on Vehicle" so that buyer can search for the part needed and be specific so as to limit the results. The placement may not always appear in the title. Only some of the values for this Item Specifics Name work. Consider the following API request: {ItemSpecifics} {NameValueList} {Name} Placement on Vehicle {/Name} {Value} Left {/Value} {Value} Front {/Value} {Value} Driver {/Value} {/NameValueList} {/ItemSpecifics} When these words are not in the item's title and a search is performed the search will match Left and/or Front, but it DOES NOT match Driver. Why? I want to enter what buyers may search for. Some may use "Left Front" while others may use "Driver". Shouldn't all three of these words work?

ALSO -- The order in which someone enters the words in a search string should not make a difference. For example with Item Specifics "Placement on Vehicle: Right, Front" a Search using "front right" found the item, but "right front" got 0 results.
