Great little car. Perfect for my needs. excellent
Pros: gas mileage and 4Door hatchback
Cons: The fact that I can't get another one.I've gone to NY and back and the trip in my vibe is quite comfortable. Handles well. There's really nothing that I don't like about this car. P.S. Under the skin, it's actually a TOYOTA MATRIX.
pleasent, bargin price
Pros: funtional interior, good gas mileage, better than average looks
Cons: paint chips very easily from highway drivingnow have 27000 miles only thing required has been oil changes absolutly bullet proof so far
The vehicle I still love
Pros: Body style and engine really are fantastic!
Cons: Loss of the high output Celica engine.The 2005 Pontiac Vibe GT is going to reach 5 years, the longest time for me to be in love with a car. Too bad it cannot be built today. The high output 1800cc Toyota 4cylinder tune by Yamaha and also use in the Lotus two-seater series, the Exige, really can perform in all respects. The 5speed manual still works wonderfully, and gas-wise it does 28 to 38 mpg, usually 30 around town. It's a beauty, and sad that no more will be built. The EPA doesn't approve of the exhaust anymore. It's a fun machine! Much better looking than the Toyota Matrix, made in the same factory by NUMMI. Pontiac designers did a wonderful thing!
Great car for the money
Pros: The seats fold down so you can load something 9 feet long.
Cons: rear windshield wiper makes noiseEasy to drive. Very versatile. Seating is comfortable. Durable. Handles well.
Cons: clutch too quick. no good in the snowthe best most fun car i have ever owned. too bad pontiac is no longer with us. standard trnns gives 36 mpg with lots of zip. i suspect that an auto is not so cool.
Does all that is expected
Pros: overall competency
Cons: Numb SteeringThe car hauls a lot of 'stuff', has plenty of room inside, and is comfortable. Has a lot of features. Competent on road, but lacks 'Pontiac excitement' (average acceleration and steering is a little numb). The ride and handling, however, are fine and it more than keeps up with traffic. Overall, exactly what I expected.
Cons: drink holdersgreat vehicle
