I think what I hate most about the Prius is that as you're driving it you are constantly being reminded that it is a Prius. Love it or hate it, it doesn't want you to forget that it's a Prius.
Its like when you're out with friends and trying to have fun but one of the people in your group is just really boring. His name is Jerry or something and he collects stamps and every time you come up with something fun to do Jerry says "Oh no, I can't go in there I'm allergic to the chemicals they use to sanitize the bar stools" or "Oh heavens I can't go bowling, what if my fingers get stuck in the ball and I dislocate my arm?" "I get shinsplints if I try to run." "Do you have decaff? Caffeine makes me gassy." Etc.
The Prius is the Jerry of the automotive world.
