Because it’s me and my money here is what I don’t want!

I dont want to fly on a rocket with parts supplied by the lowest bidder.

I don’t want to have brain surgery by a below average medical student.

And, I don’t want to drop 95K on a truck rushed through a new production plant. Yes I want one bad, but not at the expense of frequent service visits and quality issues.

Get it built soon but get it built right!

I'm a recovering Prius owner and enthusiast.

Prius batteries do occasionally fail. It's about as reliable as an automatic transmission and lasts just as along, but it's cheaper and easier to replace.

The eCVT system also replaces a lot of the mechanical complexity of an automatic transmission, which contributes to the overall reliability of the car.

It's reasonable to expect a 2nd or 3rd generation Prius battery to last at least 250k trouble-free miles. But they can fail occasionally, just like any other component of a car with 3 million copies on the road.

The Prius HSD a great system with a 20-year service history. It's efficient and reliable, and it's a better choice for long-term ownership than most other vehicles on the road. But, claiming Prius batteries have never failed overstating it by quite a lot.
Luke, I didn't say that I heard no Prius battery has ever failed, but that after a decade, none has failed simply from old age. Of course, with millions on the road, things can detach or break or whatever, just like, as you say, transmissions.
