I don't blame you for being a Prius heretic, but I do blame you for liking anything VW.

What's the attraction with a vehicle way more reliable and easy to work on than any VW? What's the attraction of a vehicle that costs way less to purchase and to maintain?

VW is among the least reliable, most expensive to maintain brands. Just replacing spark plugs in my friend's VW is a nightmare involving removal of the intake manifold and specialized tools.
