I think this has been said a few times now, but they aren't exactly inexpensive cars to maintain. I'm spending many times more on maintenance than I was on my old cars. Plus you have to put gas in...

I thought I might add that I do measure by "smiles per hour" in my car. I feel like every little bit of it was designed with great care and attention to detail.
