RE: Highways preferred in open directions
Does the result improve when you use the licensed Directions API at http://www.mapquestapi.com/directions/v2/route?  If so, the issue is the data.  The Open Directions API uses OpenStreetMap data and that is crowd-sourced.  Anyone, including yourself, can use the tools provided by http://www.openstreetmap.org to update and maintain the data.
