There were several companies that went that route. We never had our wires chewed. Could be luck, could be our cat. But we've had the car 16 years and the cat for 2.

The car companies (they are being sued) say that rodents will chew up any wiring if you have an infestation, and they aren't wrong.

Ever seen what rodents will do to wiring in a house with normal insulation?

People that have mice and are worried about their cars have taken to pepper spraying the wiring, or buying special pepper tape to wrap the wires in.

Edit: not sure who else besides toyota and lexus, and pretty sure toyota makes lexus.
