Bought this car 2 years ago with 141000 miles and now has 235000. By far the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned! Nice gas mileage on highway with outstanding handling. Would buy another in a second! Only normal maintenance......brakes, tires, o2 sensor but that's it. Only complaints are: driver seat sits too low and side view mirrors are unreliable. But overall a really terrific automobile. Highly recommend.

Vibe one of the top 2 most reliable cars in decade

Vibe owners love our Vibes. Reliable, good acceleration, good mileage. Engine built by Toyota with Pontiac styling. Awesome killer sound system. Moonroof slides open, and can tilt vent too. I have owned my VIBE for 11 yrs. Wish they were still making new ones! Comfy ride (I am a very large person, and seats fit and feel great!). Nice feature...back of fold down seats is hard quality plastic which makes cargocompartment very durable. D rings in cargo for tying downs. Great visibility with all the windows. Sporty, spunky, practical and fun! (make sure airbags have been "fixed" on recall, check your VIN to see if "complete, there were 2 recalls on the same repair like most vehicles in U.S). No worries though GM dealers will fix in a snap. Still love my Vibe for all the reasons mentioned! Oh, the driver and passenger's seats open fold all the way bac in case you need to take a nap on a long trip etc. Cool sporty instrumentation too! Good handling around corners, if you get good tires, great handling in snow, and rain. Gas mileage is very good (ave. 29mpg city and highway together) Best in it's class! Come on Pontiac/GM/Toyota - please start making new Vibe's. Love'em, Love'em, want more of 'em!!!

Great Toyota made GM car.

We have had our vibe since it had about 60,000 miles. She is at 273,000 and we haven't had the first issue other than it uses a little oil. Which is to be expected out of a high mileage car. If you see one of these for cheap with low miles snatch it up! Outstanding commuter car.

Vanessa, my vivacious Vibe

I have had this car for 5 years now. Bought it used with 40,000 miles on it, and it now as 204,000 and still drives like it always has! I used it to commute to and from college (approx. 1-1.5hr highway) for 2 years, took it from PA to FL once, and PA to NC probably 30 times. I'm a big traveler, and this car is great in all situations. First let me start by saying the AWD is unbeatable. I've driven trucks and SUV's that handle worse in the snow than this little beast. I used to live up in a mountainous area, where we always got at least 6 more inches of snow than the surrounding areas, and it does just fine going up and down steep hills in the snow, and yes, even ice. I am an avid snowboarder, so not only does it have ample room in the back with the wagon-like set up and the seats folding down for all of me and my friends' gear, but any time a snowstorm is coming in we PREFER to take my vehicle out just because its capability and reliability in a snowstorm situation. I've driven this on Interstate 80 through a PA snowstorm up in the Poconos with 10inches of snow (at least) on the highway and never had any trouble or loss of traction (keep in mind, some good all-season tires are worth their weight in $ too!). As far as non-inclement weather trips go, I average about 33mpg on highway trips, with a record of 39mpg over 500miles. Not bad for this car! City is like they rate it for, right around 26-28mpg. On our trip to Florida for spring break one year, my friends and I used the handy little 115v two-prong outlet in the front to run an Xbox to keep us busy and entertained on our trip down! It has neat little features like that. I have also moved a series of 5 times, and filled that car up to the brim. The seats fold down in the back (and the passenger), and they actually fold FLAT, and have a hard back so it's almost like having a mini truck. This has been useful soooooo many times, and the interior holds up to this abuse. Nothing is damaged save for a few minor scratches on "the bed liner", and the seats are suuupper comfy even for a guy like me (im 6'2"). Being a childish college student, I have not always driven this car easy as well. One of my favorite things to do with it back in the day would be reverse donuts in a wet or snow-filled empty parking lot (not recommended). That kind of beating would wear on most cars, but I've never had any issues with the transmission or engine or anything for that matter. That being said, I love this car, and I have always been very meticulous with the maintenance. The manual recommends an oil change every 4-6,000 miles. I change it every 3. I rotate the tires and check the fluid levels. They say with Toyotas, as long as you keep up with the maintenance, the car will last you forever. I can attest to this! (being that it is the sister car of the toyota matrix). The toyota transmission has handled hill after hill and beating after beating with no trouble. Still shifts like the day I got it. smooooottthhh. I wish I owned the GT so I had a little more acceleration, but it still does great in high traffic, high speed, merging situations. My only complaint, and I have seen this in a toyota matrix, is the gear lights next to the shifter had gone out and that some idiot biker ran into my passenger door and left a little dent. If you're looking into this car and want something reliable, useful, and long-lasting, look no further. Do yourself a favor and pick one up for super cheap.

It's too bad they don't make them anymore

Currently sitting at 240,000 miles. The only thing I've had done to the car is maintenance (oil, tune-up, tires, etc) and very minor repairs. By minor repairs, I've had to replace the driver door check arm twice (about $30 each time and easy to do myself), and the antenna recently broke, partly my fault by putting antenna balls on it. Other than that, this has seriously been a fantastic car. I bought it at 70k miles for $8000. I knew I wanted a vibe because it had everything Toyota for a GM price tag. It's taken me all over the country and has been the source of many happy memories. I couldn't be any happier with this car and would seriously consider getting another late model vibe or even a matrix when the time comes to replace it. At 240k I just want to see if I can make it another 240k, at this point I don't care to get another car because of how incredibly reliable this one has been

200,000 still going strong!!!

My mother in 2004 needed a new car her old car was worn out and she is rough on cars. She test drove couple cars and fell in love with the pontiac vibe. She bought it brand new with 9 miles on it and in 2014 exactly 10 years later I write this review this car now has 211,000 miles still drives literally like its brand new aged very well awesome gas mileage and cheap to maintain!!! I recommend this car for anyone Toyota and GM made a good product toyota powertrain and motor and gm body. Since pontiac is dead now the vibe is still being made under the Toyota Matrix nameplate.

As a delivery driver for a certain "freaky fast" sandwich shop, this car is perfect. Tons of room in the back with the seats down, oodles of gas mileage, it's an all around great car for my job. Now, I'm 20, so naturally I'm gonna drive this car pretty hard. The car does kind of slug through first gear, but after that it takes off like a rocket. I often forget it's just a little 1.8L. I've had no major repairs at 104k, bought at 90k. Only really "major" things I've HAD to do are transmission fluid/filter. Other than that, this car's a little champ. Has a nice engine noise for being a 4cyl, nice torque, good suspension and cornering. Definitely a head turner when folks see it's just a Vibe.

Glad I have one.

My vibe has 155,000 miles. Thanks to TOYOTA for making a great motor the only maintainance i've done is change plugs-which were extremely easy and affordable cause there is no plug wires to replace. tires and the front brake pads were extremely easy to replace. I also like that the back seats have hard plastic on the back of them so when they fold down its like having a small truck. I use this vehicle for my organic carpet cleaning business. Good gas mileage. So far havent found any other vechicle that is as old as this one that looks and operates as good as this one.

Traded an Audi Quattro for this 2004 Vibe, best trade I've ever made. The Audi was a well built vehicle, but not reliable and expensive to repair, and there were lots of repairs. The Vibe is reliable, excellent gas mileage, easy to drive and half the cost of the Audi. Will be getting another Vibe soon.

From NEW to 106,000 miles..7yrs of FUN

I now have 106k miles on the Vibe and I have only replaced the tires and that was at 65,000 with the original Goodyear Eagle tires. Still have original brakes. The VIBE will cost less than its twin the Matrix and have the same reliability. I think it was 2009 that they changed the engine with increased hp but less mpg.. I would rather have the better gas mileage and the design of the 2003-2008 body too.. Both the MAtrix and the Vibe are built on the Corolla platform, but I think the Vibe is more versitile..

bought my car brand new Sept. 03, went to the dealershop and specifically told the salesman what kind of vehicle I wanted. I got a sporty looking orange vibe, I luv it unless I am going up the hill and it starts to power out and I have to shift down, great on prairie roads. Recently, there is a ticking sound and had it inspected & changed different things I have been told might be wrong with it, but the ticking is still there. A GM dealershop told me it might be the tranny but I have no problem shifting or anything like that or might be a rock inside the tranny, have had no other problems with it except its gutless. I have been told it might be the purge valve so I will change it

I bought this car 4 years ago with 20,000 miles on it and it is up to about 110,000. So far the only failures were a belt tensioner ($100 fix) and two of the digital display lights in the radio went out. The car runs like the day I bought it. Mechanically, it seems indestructible. The body and paint are both solid too. I tend to neglect the body and on the rare occasion I wash and polish it, it always looks like it great. Not only is it well built, but it is very comfortable. With some years on the Vibe name now, more and more reviews are from people with 200k+ miles and I hope to be one of them. When the day comes to replace this, I only hope its twin, the Toyota Matrix, is still around.

It just keeps on going and going

I bought this car in 2004 brand new. I have replaced the brakes twice; that's it. I now have 151,000 and still drive it. I did have problems with the drivers window before the recall. It drives super in the snow; I live in western PA and have never been disappointed with it's performance. I wore out the radio controls. I have the "moon and tune" pkg and it rocks; the best sound system that I've come across. Very reliable and easy to drive.

Amazing even after 165,000 miles!

Did a lot of research when I bought this car in 2004 new and could not have believed at that time that this would have been as amazing as it has been. My daily driver for a long commute for the past 6 yrs and I still love it! We have only replaced tires, oxygen sensor, AND it still has original brakes. The most amazing car - can't say enough good about it. Love how it drives, love the looks, versatility, everything. It has become a good old friend and I shall keep it until it dies (which may be 450,000 miles+) but I seriously can't imagine a better car and I have a luxury SUV but still love this car!

I loved my '04 Vibe. Rock solid reliable, versatile and roomy interior, enjoyable to drive on long trips. I could haul loads of 8-foot lumber or big bulky items in the back. Car was easy to work on as well, though all I ever needed to do it was rotate tires and change the oil. Got wrecked in '09, and I still miss it.

This 2004 Vibe is the best car I have ever owned in terms of reliability. Six years, 63,000 miles, and never had any warranty work whatsoever! The brakes are still original, even with considerable stop and go driving. GM really blew it by dropping Pontiac and especially the Vibe. It has been a Consumer Reports Best Buy since its inception in 2003! Of all their bad decisions, this one ranks right at the top. We plan to keep this car forever. It tracks through our bad northern Ohio winters with no problem with the all wheel drive and still delivers 20 mpg in town and 28 on the highway. Why would I ever sell this car?

Miss my Vibe :(

I got my 5 speed Vibe with 50K on it, only reason I got it was because it was a stick and got good MPG. After driving it 2.5 years I fell in love with it. Got rid of it at 112K because my fiance is 6'3" and there just isn't enough room for more than us in the car. Driving mostly alone I loved how I could reach EVERYTHING in the car with no problem. Auto headlights were great but wish there was a way to turn them off certain times w/o parking break on. The previous owner had cut a cheap outdoor mat to fit in the rear which was a great idea, helped keep stuff in place. All the little compartments were great. Never broke down or needed repairs. If you're under 5'10" you should love this car!

Our 5 speed manual Vibe has been absolutely trouble free, looks and drives like new. At 103,000 miles it still has the original brakes! Only replaced tires and wiper blades. The oil level tops the dipstick between changes at 3-5K, never added any. The original Continental Contac tires wore evenly to the wear bars at 30K but replacements wear fine. We use the 110 volt dash outlet all the time on trips to charge cell phones. Gas mileage good for such utility. Great highway car. Can be hard to hold back to 70 mph, seems to want to go 75-80. A great only car: economical and versatile. We still get compliments on its styling. The ride is taut, can be harsh on rough roads unloaded.

Roomy for a smaller car. Has some nice amenities - lots of nice storage areas, regular electrical outlet, fold-flat front passenger seat. Has needed more repairs than I'd like. Has had on-going issues with the computer system and sensors going bad. Had to replace the wheel bearings early on. AC is now going bad. Transmission leaves much to be desired - does not perform well at highway speeds. This car works for 2 kids, but 3 car seats will not fit in the back.

I love my vibe, love everything about it but recently my car was making noises and when I took it in for its regular maintenance I was informed that the whole motor needed to be replaced, I maintenance this car every 3 months. The valves, timing belt tensioner, and the rod and barrings all needed to be replaced (so the whole motor). Everyone wants $4500.00 up to $6000.00 to replace this Toyota motor. I am highly upset with Pontiac about my car. Because I love everything about my car and now I have these problems, the car has now 92k miles and I till owe $6k on the car. So I am out of a car and have to pay back $6k to the bank! I have 2 kids that I travel wi

My wife just totaled her Vibe after having for a few years. We owned from 20k to 82k miles. We had to change brakes and one set of tires...nothing else. Overall it had a nice sporty look and was comfortable to make long 1000 mile trips. I would highly recommend. Car was hit very hard in front and no scratches to driver. I wouldn't have thought of as safe as car as it is. Going out to buy another

My Vibe makes me smile. It's the red one you see most often in ads but not the GT. No supercharger. I bought it with 31k and put 32k on it. Besides oil changes only had to replace front brakes. Tight steering. Boring to drive but unbeatably reliable. It's a Matrix, after all. MPG averages 28-29 if I do 70 or under on the freeway and relax in traffic. Lots of space inside when you flatten the back seat. The car rides high for its light weight and you are at the driver level of the average SUV. You must adjust your mirrors accurately to avoid the blind spots - don't look surprised Toyota/Pontiac - you know they are there. Very easy to park and turn. A truly great little car... but boring.

We rented a Vibe for a weekend trip in 2004 because that's all they had left. My wife would not let me drive the car the whole trip she loved it so much. We bought a leftover model when we got back and got a great deal. She commutes about 45 miles a day and has not complained a bit. The car has tons of room and gets about 32 mpg. We camp a lot so the plastic back hatch area makes for easy cleanup. The roof racks are very useful and solid and we use them for our 2 kayaks. The back seat is roomy even for my football player son. I've replaced the brakes once and change the oil every 3000 miles. The car has 65500 mostly hiway miles. Hopefully they keep making these when we'll be ready for the next one.

Did not think I would own one till I drove one. I am a old 67 yrs old drummer. I have a 7 piece drum kit. They are fit on this Vibe. I am still amazed, I am 6ft 4in tall and i have plenty of head room, leg room, etc. Truly amazed. Wife is a rural mail carrier. With 4 bolts taken out the center console can be removed and if she needs a back up vehicle this little but big Vibe will do well. 37 MPG, great ride. We own 2 Hondas also, A CRV and an Odyssey. Would buy another Vibe in a heart beat. Same as the Toyota Matrix. Wife's sister owns a Matrix. That's what got me started looking into this vehicle. She lives in New Orleans, she visited us this year. She got 35 MPG easy on her trip to Indiana.

Love, love, love this car! Bought used just over a year ago. Gets great gas mileage. Very comfortable seating. Very roomy & lots of space for passengers or to haul cargo.

Great Gas Mileage. Fun Car to drive. Fits smaller people like a glove. Some quirks that seem not to make sense such as Headlights always on(Can not be turned off at any time), Front windows recall(mine were fixed under warranty before recall), Front of car including hood chips very easily, and most nagging for me is the fan in the car is always on(air comes through vents constantly). These things get noticed after newness of car wears off!

I purchased in Dec 2003, and nearly 5 yrs later I still love this car. It is incredibly functional, durable, and reliable. I have had ZERO mechanical/maintenance problems with it. My only complaint is the sheet metal for the exterior is easily dented - expect to see some dings on the bodies of older models. I am proud to say I just made a long distance drive on the freeway with the cruise control set at 65, and got more than 33 miles/gal. At 58,000 miles I'm just changing the tires. She still looks good, and is the perfect car for a dog owner/family man like me.

I love this car! I compare it to the Subaru Outback because of its versatility. I've only had it two weeks but I can tell the gas mileage is great. Only problem I've come across is putting gas in the tank. The pump constantly shuts off like its full even when I just start pumping. Very annoying, takes 10 minutes to fill tank. Anyone else have this issue? I checked on recalls or campaigns and found none. Other than that, great car.

We recently sold our 2003 Honda Odyssey, and replaced it with a 2004 Vibe. I'm thrilled with our choice. We have two young children, but really didn't want to drove a large van around any longer, partly because of rising gas prices, and also because the van became a holding ground for extra items we really didn't need to be using. The Vibe is perfect for us. It still has the ability to haul things if needed, has a decent-sized back seat for a small car, but has much improved gas mileage, ease of handling and parking, and is equally as comfortable. It is also a sharp looking car, and it sits you up nicely for a good view of the road. If something ever happened to mine, I'd buy another!

Great car!

The Pontiac Vibe /Toyota is a very reliable and economical vehicle. It's a great substitute for a small SUV. Amazingly I average 38 mpg on mostly rural driving and 40.3 mpg on a few 200 mile trips. I was only expecting 33-36 mpg. A great commuter car.

bought this Vibe new and just hitting 100K.I have no real complaints. Great fuel mileage, GREAT cargo space, sharp interior, its got the Toyota guts with the Pontiac price tag!!!I am an avid Pontiac buyer, and this is by far the best Pontiac I've had. I love it. I use mine like its a truck sometimes, hauling everything from dishwashers, landscaping rocks, to building lumber. Can't beat it for its use and fuel mileage. Terrific vehicle! I guess one complaint would be that I have to get my tires rotated about every 3K miles because the weight distribution of the car is off and causes "cupping" of the rear tires. I get free rotation, so I don't care too much. I would definitely buy another!

My Vibe ROCK!!!

I have 125,000 miles on mine and have only put 1 set of brakes, 1 set of tires and a battery in my Vibe. This car ROCKS. I will drive it until the wheels fall off and get another one.

We bought our vibe new in 2003. I was happy to have the style of a Pontiac and the reliability of the Toyota engine. Was I wrong! I have replaced my engine already at 70K. After research I have come to find out this is a common problem in Toyota engines. I would have expected something more reliable than what was purchased. I do love this car, or I wouldn't have spent the money to replace the engine. But it has left a bad taste in my mouth about the Vibe. I will not be purchasing another one for a 2nd car as planned. It's hard to praise a vehicle whose engine barely lasts past 70K. Boo Toyota. Would rather see a GM motor in this car.

Great space-amazingly roomy, good exterior design. Seats fold down for extra storage and plastic backs for easy cleaning. Higher ground clearance is also very nice.

I'm just beginning my fifth year driving this Vibe. Very satisfied overall. Very comfortable (doesn't feel like I'm crouching in a "catcher's position). Still 30 mpg. A bit noisy in cold weather start up until the engine warms. Surprising amount of pep cruising at highway speeds, but sluggish when merging onto a a freeway (that's the trade off one gets for the consistent 30 mpg fuel economy). Interior storage capacity is very adequate, and the seating/cargo configurations are very versatile. I change the oil/filter every 5K-7K miles and rotate the tires. I got 50K miles on the original set of Potenza tires, and bought the same tire as a replacement. A wise choice.

My 4 year daughter and myself were involved in a head on collision with our Vibe. A woman ran a stop light and hit us head on going about 45-50 mph. All I can say is, this car certainly made an impression for me to buy a new one without hesitation. The front end was totally demolished and totalled, yet both of us were able to walk away with only bruises. The structure of the impact and how well it protected us was simply amazing. For being a small SUV, it's stylish, great on gas, avg. 30-35 mpg everyday driving, and the room inside is amazing. After owning it over a year, I still can say I love the Vibe! No major problems for functionality!

I have had this car for almost 4 years now. We bought it before we had children, and two children and two dogs later, we have almost outgrown this car. It handles well and has held up well being rear-ended once (no scratches even!) Gas mileage is wonderful. The sound system is great. The driver's area adjusts well between my husband and me without a lot of moving things around. It's a little slow in the acceleration, but manageable. Overall, not a bad car, but a little small for family trips.

I have had my Vibe since new and have 45,000 trouble free miles on it now. It is fun to drive and feels bigger than it is while driving. Made by Toyota it will undoubtedly have good reliability thru 150,000. That is my goal. 35mpg at 65mph is true. Only drawback is the rear window washer, it's useless. But that's a small defect in a great car

Has a five speed manual with basic engine. With rear seats down, will take two bicycles and camping gear for a week. With front seat down will take eight foot objects like lumber or a projection screen. On interstate travel with the cruise on 70 MPH, delivers 40 to 44 MPG using quality regular gas. Roomy rear seat even for those over 6 foot. On interstate trips with two couples and all luggage inside is comfortable. Luggage did go to six inches from the top of the rear window. Mileage also 44 MPG under these conditions in the Midwest. Traveling near Breckenridge/Frisco, CO (continental divide) vehicle was underpowered going up very steep hills. Delivered 40 MPG. Great on snow.

As you can see by the miles, I work from my car. While I wish I had a Cadillac for comfort, I use a pillow. I only average 30/31 simply because I spend so much time idling on the phone. So if my miles are any part of reality, I would imagine that engine hours wise has produced an additional 30% of use by simply idling. The main reason why it idles so much is because of the one BIG flaw the car has - the headlights. While I appreciate the safety involved with them, when the car is running with lights off and turn car off to "accessory position", the lights remain on. So its easy for the battery to die. At 118K I would by another one. I think I tell you about that at 240K

my Vibe is very manueverable, has excellent accelleration & gets very good fuel mileage. Having the household outlet built into the car is a great accessary & all cars & trucks should be equipped with at least 1 outlet. I had a back injury 2 years ago & the heating pad I plugged in is the only thing that got me through a 60 mile drive to & from work safely comfortably. As much as I love my Vibe, there are a couple of things I would have designed differently, cruise control & larger mirrors.

I love this car because of its reliability and versatility. I frequently lay the seats down to haul loads. My lifetime mpg over 50,000 miles is 34.1 combined. I've owned a number of Hondas, and they have all used less fuel and had more power. Whoever designed the cruise control was on drugs. Drop below 25 mph and it loses it's memory and has to be reset. I don't like the daytime running lights. The oem Continental tires only lasted 15k miles without hard driving. The Michelin Hydroedge replacements really make the car handle better. If GM built all their cars with this kind of quality and practicality, they wouldn't be in financial trouble. Like an suv without the disadvantages.

I purchased my Vibe when I was searching for an economical car with lots of cargo space. The Vibe is perfect. It is a great 4-5 passenger car that converts to a practical station wagon. My vibe has gone thousands of miles carrying show dogs to competitions. It has transported cargo as large as a screen door for my house, furniture and bales of hay. After nearly 38,000 miles of in town and highway driving I still have never had a single problem with my Vibe. My best MPG was 37, but normally I get around 32-33 MPG on the highway. Can't say enough good things about this car. I just love it. It is so well thought out. Thanks Pontiac!

I just recently bought a used 2004 Vibe. Originally i was in the market looking at Honda's or Toyota's... but one drive in the Vibe, and I was hooked! This car has everything, from a style that doesn't make you feel like it's a Wagon. Everyone who has driven with me, are like, "WOW! we might consider getting this car too." It has it all, style, comfort, extra little perks, and a smooth ride, but doesn't break your piggy bank. I love that it has Toyota parts under the hood, & the interior of the car is Exactly! like that of the Matrix, which my friend owns. Now after having this car, a Honda or Toyota just look boring! I'm glad I got this instead!

We have had a variety of AWD continuously since 1974 and this represents the best combination of all. It is an outstanding blend of economy, comfort, utility and reliability. We often drive long distances in inclement weather and the AWD Vibe handles everything exceptionally well and without drama or failure while allowing us to always arrive on time. This is my wife's favorite vehicle and she cares for it assiduously. I have recommended it to many others, along with the Matrix twin.

I've had my Vibe for 2 years now. I have live in California and it has been on the beach and over the Sierra Mountians. Have never had a single problem. Mileage is what was advertised, although it did take a break-in period to get there. The paint on the bumpers and bottom door trim could be a little better. I'm a big 50 year old man. It takes me camping and on business trips. Still get comments on the looks of it. Friends have been so impressed a few have purchased Vibes. You won't be disappointed.

Basically it is a Toyota Matrix which is really a Carolla Wagon. Greate car. Holds lots of stuff. Looks great with a surfboard on the roof rack. More standard features than the Matrix. The only negative is the rattle around the radio and highway wind noise. I have 36,000 mi. The only repair was the front end alignment when I first bought it.

I've owned two of these now. The manual 5 speed has the best fuel economy. The automatic tran needs to be refined for quicker shift response and less fuel pedle. (You have to floor-board it to get response)

This is very good car for me. It is very versatile and decent fuel milage but is still fun to drive. The vibe is not the fastest car but it gets the job done. The steering is percise and it handles turns and corners really well. The transmission is a real plus because it doesnt shift up and down for every little hill and downshifts into third when going downhill. The main reasons I like this car is that I sit up higher than most small cars, its good on gas, really handy and above all it has been reliable.

awesome

I love this car! It handles well in the snow, you can haul anyting from a recliner to a table, and can even fit my 6' 5" brother in it. It feels like an SUV without the high gas mileage. The only thing I regret about this purxchase is not getting ABS.

this is my wife's car but I drive it on out-of-town trips because of utility and gas mileage. What a vehicle! She is 5'2" and I am 6'4" and we both love it! Its practical as well as classy. Gas mileage outstanding. Handles well both in town and on highway. I notice that the reviews by "experts" are all 20% lower than reviews by owners. There's a reason for that. Roomy interior and flexible seat heights a plus for multiple users. the standard 1.8L engine is definitely light on hills -- be prepared to downshift -- but it's an acceptable tradeoff for gas mileage. If you want the power get the GT and pay for extra gas(we're considering it - WV is hilly)

Love it!!

I knew I wanted a Toyota, but didn't like the style of the Matrix. The car has style, comfort, ease of use, dependability, and great gas mileage. I have averaged 27 mpg with mostly city driving on 89 octane 10 pct ethanol unleaded fuel and 31-33 on highway trips over 300 miles. I would highly recommend this vehicle to anyone and to purchase without the XM satellite radio option would be foolish. I certainly hope that Pontiac considers keeping this vehicle in their arsenal as well as keeping up the great work on this vehicle with Toyota. I look forward to, and hope, that the planned Toyota redesign of this car (in 2007) continues through to the Pontiac as well. Good luck with you VIBE.

GM needs to really get some younger engineers to design their vehicles or get new ones.This vehicle is made at the same plant which builds Toyota Matrix (which I like alot more than this cars outside design) I purchased this vehicle for the GM staple and show American car loyalty (please dont laugh, What loyalty?) Very versatile, functional, and fun to drive, no problems and car is 2 years old. Only regular maintenance and I would give this car a 10 but nothing is perfect.

The nature of my work is driving. I drove more than most. Much more. My care turned 79K today, 18 months after my purchase. I keep trying to find a grass is greener on the other side car. Yes, an Audi and BMW certainly spell greater success to a prospect. A cady is certainly more luxurious, and a Subaru has a better ride. However, No other Auto provides the Stereo, gas mileage, handling, ease of operation, cheap to keep, sunroof, parking ease and ample room for five for a two hour drive than this car. Its so hard to beat and I have driven numerous. I keep trying to find better and simply havent been able to do it at this price point NOT CLOSE!!!

I bought my Abyss Vibe back in Feb. 04. Previously I was driving a Dodge Dakota, but wanted a little more room. I wasn't really aware of the Vibe until I started looking for a trade-in. I fell in love with it, and bought it even though it cost more than my truck. It has great styling, very functional, gorgeous interior, and great gas mileage. The performance can be enhanced easily if you want to spend a few bucks. I put Eibach Sportline lowering springs on it and it now sits about 2 inches lower and handles even better than stock. I also put a Magnaflow exhaust which makes it sound a little bit more aggresive.

This was my first NEW car purchase and I'm VERY PLEASED. My husband & I were originally looking for a small SUV, but when we compared them all (Rav4, Escape, Liberty, CRV, etc...) The Vibe's stats were better. It's got a great, unique look - drives great (very smooth), AWESOME on gas mileage (we always get at least 30 mi per gallon, & it's an automatic) We have 2 big dogs that love to ride in the back, we've hauled a lot of stuff... I will keep this car until it dies on me. Only quirks have been the front center storage compartment under gear shift pops open, wont stay closed. Right front window starting to make a click when it's rolled up, haven't had it looked at yet.

Vibe even better now that it is paid for

Bought my 04 Vibe in July 04 when the new 05's were coming out & got a good deal. Right away had a bad feeling when the car wouldn't start the day I had to pick it up.The dealer had left the dome light on overnight and drained the battery but after a jump start and a night on the battery charger no problems occurred. Gets great gas mileage:avg 33mpg's. The center console under the shifter constantly pops open, just recently had this addressed by the service dept.and now seems to be fine. Been to FL,IA, & CA from TX and the cars performed admirably.Great car for small family (1 or 2 small kids).Great interior capacity for trips.

I loved my new Vibe! Great gas mileage, fun to drive, and a very versatile vehicle. Spacious interior. It would have been great for camping and biking this year. I walked away from a 40 mph front end collision with nothing more than a sore ankle (probably from jamming the breaks) and a slightly stiff neck the next day. Unfortunately, the battery leaked during the collision and the insurance adjustor totaled it out. On to find another Vibe... This car was great!

I always was attracted to the "look" of the Vibe and theres still something about it that attracts me. After one year and 23,400 miles I have to say its a good little car. The gas mileage is good, traveling with 2 adults and 2 kids is comfortable. Its nice to see a American car company offering a somewhat affordable common sense little car thats reliable and sporty as well as functional. Even though its a Toyota at heart, which certainly isn't a bad thing ! better looking than Matrix...

The Vibe fits my family, including getting my 6'5" son being able to sit int he back seat. I've hauled lumber, kayaks, and furniture---and with the front seat folded I can get almost anything inside the car. All this and I'm averaging 30 mpg with a great handling, fun to drive car. The satellite radio was interesting for the free trial, but broadcast radio and CDs work well enough for me.

I really enjoy this car. However, I did have a problem with a leaking sunroof when I first purchased it. After 3 repair attempts, though, I think they fixed it. Also, the paint quality could be better. The paint marks up easily. Overall, the interior is awesome (though the auto-headlights drive me crazy... the turn on in bright sunshine). It is very comfortable for short and long trips. It parks in the tightest spots, and it has good power. I often find myself going 75-80 on the highway, though it feels much slower. Wind and road noise is great for such a small car. Also, the cargo room is amazing for such a small car. Many storage spots, and it is really sharp looking.

It's a peppy smart looking car that is a cross between an SUV and a wagon. It handles smoothly on straight aways as well road construction surfaces. Great front window view. The back hatch door can be opened fully with remote or just the window can be open if you just want to put small bags in.This car is very roomy and seats 5 people very comfortable. Has great back seat leg room for tall people. This car does have roadside service coverage which hopefully I'll never have to check out,but at least it's available. This car also has a great sound system.CDs play and sound like you're listening live. Free oil changes every 3 months is a great incentive also.

We bought the Vibe a year ago, but waited until now for a review. The car is perfect! Wait, almost perfect: the side view mirrors could be a bit bigger. The car has AWD, Side Airbags, Moonroof and fancy radio - all the bells and whistles. And it didn't cost an arm and a leg. Seats are more comfortable than our Infiniti. This winter we outfitted the car with studded snow tires: we're invincible in the snow! Would I buy another of these? In a heartbeat! But it will probably be a while because the car acts as though it will last forever. Want one? They're so reasonable, you might as well buy one new. Just a great car.

After 2 years, still lovin it.

Wanted a vehicle with good mileage, space for kids, utility, and fun to drive. I'm a product designer, an intelligent, stlish product is important. I also care about good value, long term cost, and enviromental impact. The Vibe has been a great little car, fun to drive, easy and cheap to own. After 2 years of pretty hard driving (40k miles - I used to have a BMW 530i), It still feels tight. My kids call it the zippy car, compared to the Explorer we had.

We were looking for a good mileage vehicle to replace our 1990 Dodge Caravan. Bought this new. Have 3000 miles on it now. We have gotten as much as 30 MPG. Always in high 20's. With the ice and snow we get here in Indiana the AWD has been a definate plus. We find ourselves creeping up over the speed limit with out even realizing it it is that smooth. The only dislike we have about it is the drippling rear windshield washer. No spray just dribbles dealer states that is the way it was made!!

Comfortable ride with superb cargo capacity. Gas mileage would be better if I lay off the hammer. The Vibe will age well. No squeaks or rattles, yet. It takes a licking and keeps on going. Toyota quality built in the USA.

I have the 4 speed manual. I used to have a Durango, but always rented manual when in Europe and enjoyed them so much that I was happy to ditch the Durango for the Vibe. Plus, the fuel economy is excellent, especially the way I drive often in neutral to coast into stops and lights, or on downhills. I also appreciate all the bells and whistles it has (sun roof, cargo straps, roof rack,etc).

This car is probably the best I've ever had (#10 or so). The only thing that I don't like about it is the pressure on your ears when driving over 45 mph and there is a back window open. This pressure is annoying and worsens as you speed up. Other than this minor annoyance, the car is very reliable, good looking and fully loaded.

Pontiac has his the right Vibe with this sports wagon. The Vibe interior is very comfortable around town or on long trips, there is plenty of interior room for all 4 passengers. Great fuel economy and a very peppy, yet loud engine that hopefully will be refined by the time I buy my next Vibe. The folding back seats allow for great cargo storage. This vehicle is a little of everything one needs in a small SUV/Sports wagon, it's so fun to own and drive everyday, great job Pontiac.

Unfortunately, this car has been very problematic for me. Water leaks, Air Conditioner problems (noise and smell), many different rattles and squeaks in the car, damaged roof rack, missing some finishing details from the factory, like door stops. Car wouldn't start the other day. I've only had the car for 6 months and bought it brand new. What made my problems worse were the poor GM service reps. One rep damaged the roof rack and interior when attempting to fix my problems. Other dealers simply were not interested in trying to fix my car's problems, even when the problems could be reproduced in front of the service reps eyes. Wishing I didn't buy this car....

We have had this vehicle 12 months. Haven't been back to the dealer yet for anything. I drove for 6 months. My wife drove for 6 months. We both like it. For comparison, I bought a new chevy cavalier wagon back in 1985 and it was overall a great car for all 12 years I owned it. The Vibe is kind of like the new improved version of the chevy. Bigger tires, ABS brakes and much, much more comfortable seating. It was actually a coin toss between buying the Vibe or a Ranger pickup. With the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, and in view of today's gas prices, I think the Vibe provides the better overall utility and bang for the buck.

Have owned this car 3 months. Very satisfied with quality and economy. Only real complaint is the driver position is just a bit different and it is difficult to get used to. Arm rest could be a bit forward, which would help. Haven't recorded gas mileage less than 26.5 MPG, which for short trips and automatic is GREAT. The relatively small engine (1.8L) has adequate power.

I am a single senior citizen who drives this back and forth from Michigan to Florida. I pack it sooooo full there is hardly room to breath. Get great gas mileage. Comfortable seating. No way would I ever consider hauling anything behind it but find that I can be up to 85 mph without even knowing it. Thank goodness for my cruise control. Not exactly thrilled with the pontiac dealerships for maintenance. Have had a small problem for a year and unless it will act up for them to see (which only acts up when I turn the key on) they won't fix it. Even though I was only about 3 miles away one time, they wouldn't send someone out to check on it. I guess the car is worth accepting it.

I researched them and was impressed with what I found. I got a great deal and not the usual hassles with the dealership that you usually go through.

I drive numerous cars as rental cars while traveling for work. After driving a Vibe, I was impressed with it's ergonomics and performance for an automobile it's size. When I later discovered it's gas mileage, I was sold. I am getting 33mpg with a combination of city/highway driving, and this with an automatic transmission! With the current trend in gas prices, this is no small factor. The price is another big selling point, few cars that I researched can offer the same level of features and utility for anywhere near this price.

This was the very first NEW car I ever bought. I love it still. It is so fun and comfortable to drive. I often drive from the Southern US to Southern Ontario Canada and I have never had a problem with the car itself. This car has served as a mode of transportation, a hotel room, a way to move house, there is so much room!

I just bought my Pontiac AWD Vibe and I love it! It sits up high, the seats are pretty comfortable, it has nice pickup (going up hills does cut down on the pickup, but that's to be expected with the AWD model). I'm very happy so far with my experience, and I would recommend the car to anyone.

I just love my Pontiac Vibe it is fun to drive, safe and versatile. The appearance is clean and the interior standard features allow the driver and passengers to travel in comfort. The fuel economy is great I am experiencing on average 30 plus miles per gallon combined city/highway and it improves when the ambient temperatures moderate. I live in Central Texas were the temperatures approach and exceed 100 degrees frequently. Great Car! I plan on buying one for my daughter when she begins to drive!

I had my doubts at first, but once I got behind that wheel for the first time, I knew it was meant to be! I fell in love with this car on site, fully loaded with all the extras that I wanted and then some. I converted rather quickly as I was set on the Matrix, but was treated much better at the Pontiac dealership, glad I changed my mind!

The interior while sporty is also very easy to care for(just ask my nephew and the millions of things he has spilled). The gas mileage is also a HUGE money saver!! I'm often complimented on it's style. I find it sporty as well as comfortable. If you're looking for comfort as well as style this is the car you're looking for!!!

While the standard model with its automatic transmission will not win any races I still think this is an extreemly fun car to drive. I bought it for my wife and got the factory 17" wheels. This car was meant bought for her to get around town reliably and it does that very well. We have not had any trouble. Where it exceeded my expectations is in the handling, it carves the curves without complaint. The only issue we have had is open road wind seems to bounce it around pretty hadr.

This vehicle lacks design of it's counterpart the "Matrix" but obviously the interior is identical besides the logo on the steering wheel (Pontiac symbol on Pontiac, Toyota on the Toyota) This car is fun to drive and very economical as well as functional.What other car gives you a household outlet in it? I am very pleased with it all around but like I said, Toyota put the extra "Pizzazz" on the exterior of it's counterpart. Radio is hard to read in daylight,as if should have been on angle,the sunlight makes it almost impossible to read.

Purchased this car two months ago, and have definately enjoyed it. It handles like a charm and gets 35mpg on the highway. Don't know how well the AWD functions, as inclement weather has not shown itself yet. The AWD is a bit sluggish off the line, but holds its own well at highway speeds. the automatic tranny has trouble finding the best gear when going up hills or when passing at high speeds. would definately prefer a manual in this car. but not a choice. car is often downshifting when cruise control is engaged, making for a loud ride at times

Pontiac told me it had a Toyota engine and that it wasbasicall the Matrix sister car, so I went to check out the Matrix and wanted one but Toyota did not want to negotiate. Went back to Pontiac, they gave me a heck of a price (better than Edmunds), so I bought one. I am in love with this car. My kids like it and my wife loves to drive it. Excellent gas mileage, smooth ride and it is cool looking. If it has a Toyota engine I am sure it will last and even though it may not have the Matrix resale value now, Toyota better not get comfortable because this car will dominate the Matrix, especially if Toyota keeps their prices up.

Love the gas milage(auto), had a Ford F- 150 and was tired of making OPEC money. It has ample room( I'm 6'2" ), nice and simple int. and for a wagon, nice body. Drives nice, fwd has power with 4 adults and baggage. 10-20K less than other vehicles with similar int dimensions, cargo room ok, front seat fold down flat adds huge space advantage.

I have been searching for a car for nearly a year...wanting something that was highly rated by consumers, economical, safe and affordable with 2 kids in college. The Vibe was very affordable...a little better than the TMV price and it has been fun to drive. My husband and son rode in the back on a recent trip. Both are at least 6 feet tall and had plenty of leg room. The acceleration has been fine...better than my van that has 4 cyl. Having Edmunds research was a blessing in assuring myself I had found a deal in the Vibe. I have the FWD automatic model.

I also got the sunroof and 6 disc changer, which make the car even more enjoyable. I recently drove from Miami to Phoenix and even with the car loaded with stuff, it got great mileage. It was also comfortable even on that very long drive.

After years of owning and loving VW products, I decided to switch brands and try the Vibe. With 3000 dollars in rebates, it made alot of sense. I like the car well enough, but I am disappointed in a few things. The plastic used in the cargo area is cheap, and marks up easily when loading. The car has rattles in the dashboard already, and it's only a few months old. The engine is buzzy, but powerful. I also have noticed that it's hard to find the sweet spot on the clutch. When the new Golf/Jetta come out in 2005, I may be switching back to VW's. The Vibe hasn't everything I've come to expect from a car/daily transportation.

THE ONLY OTHER THING, IS THAT I SUGGEST YOU DON'T TAKE IT TO A CAR WASH WITH THE BLOW DRYERS. IT BLEW THE TRIM PIECE TO MY ROOF RACK RIGHT OFF THE CAR. OTHER THAN THAT i THINK IT'S A GREAT CAR.

If your looking for a pure econo-box the Vibe is not a good choice if you remember the TR-6 and Devo read on! Remember when the road was open, top down, tunes cranked driving.Well, we have a chance again. The 4 cylinder is quick and responive, 29 MPG combined mileage, well built and solid with a minimal of body sway while zipping around back roads, plenty of room for 6 footers front AND BACK and most of all Toyota quality (built in co operation with GM). With a J. Geil's blaster Moons and Tunes package you have an excellent choice for a commuter/second car. So, grab your favorite CD, lose the kids and the significant other and just drive one!

I purchased the Vibe specifically for its versatility, but I also wanted to have a little fun driving it, so I went with the GT build. I've yet to come across a home improvement project or purchase that I haven't been able to haul home in the Vibe. I've tiled my kitchen (6X4 sheets of backer board fit perfectly), relandscaped the yard, hauled home a dinette set (the rack on the top came in handy there) and a headboard. Then there's the sporty side - the car handles like a dream. It sits high enough to see over the other compact cars, yet there's almost no sway. The steering is extremely tight and the acceleration is just awesome.

LOVE TO DRIVE GOOD POWER GOOD HANDLING, AND GOOD LOOKS.Interior fits good for large or small people. good leg room front and back seats.Only draw back I can see is it's a little short wheel based for long ranged driving, say more than 100 miles.But I think it was engineered for everyday commuting.

LOVE THIS CAR!

I test drove this last summer and liked it. But now that I FINALLY bought one I LOVE it. It's fun to drive and is very visually appealing. The gas mileage is great (especially with the cost at $2 a gallon) and is very roomy. I would definitely recommend this for a buy!

Get toyota quality with GM big time rebates and incentives in a small SUV package with mid 30's MPG. I haul cement in it. I trailer it. I hug the corners like a fat tired car. Red line limiter kicks in about 6700. Get snow tires the stock ones are more for performance, but not bad in the snow. No vehicle on the market compares Yes it is manufactured in California USA :)

Its been 8 months since my purchase of my Vibe, and I still love it! The newness has not worn off, neither has the new car smell. It stood the test of this past winter with flying vibe colors. I'm so happy with this car, there so much to say, but not enough words to say it. I could only recommend this car to anyone who is tired of stodgy,look alike tin cans with wheels. This car has personality. And you feel the excitement when you drive, even to work! It's so versatile too, car wagon, sport ute. I've been calling it my spagon. A little bit of everything, and still dressy enough to take to any event without feeling out of place. Simply, I love it.

After trading in my Montana Mini-Van, I was fearing regrets of losing all that extra space. The regrets lasted maybe a day. This vehicle is so much FUN! It has proven you can be a mom, haul kids, and still feel like you have something fun to drive! I have heard it dubbed a crossover utility vehicle - Its cause you can taxi the troops but feel like you are driving a Camaro! I am over 6 feet tall and I easily fit and with the sunroof and jammin stereo, I can't to run those errands to the store. I LOVE MY VIBE GT!

With the cost of fuel where it is, had to look for a vehile that got better milage than our 1996 Seville STS. And boy did we find one. Our 2003 Vibe has been a very, very plesent purchase. The milage is wonderful and the ride quite comfortable. The back seat has much more room than anticipated and the rear storage area is just what the doctor order. Have suggest this vehicle to friends and coworkers who are getting ready to purchase a vehicle. So far two friends have purchased a Vibe, and they are completely satisified.

Have had my Vibe for a little over a year. It has been nothing but fun, fun, fun. I've driven it everywhere from the mountains to the beaches and no problems. Great cruiser, plenty of space, fits an eight foot ladder and a 6 foot teenager. When you see another Vibe on the road, owners wave at each other. Get the stereo package - a must for traveling. Fits in compact parking spaces - great for city parking and driving. Don't hesitate - highly recommended!

A 4 cylinder engine is not built for performance, but my baby still has the zip at a green light to get out ahead of the traffic. Highway driving requires the proper use of 4th gear, not sure if I would buy the automatic. So many features that have increased my enjoyment of camping, Cargo space, 110 volt plug in(for curling iron or blender), roof rack, plastic cargo w/ tie downs.

Yu did not allow for the few of us that bought this car in 2002 I was the 1st at this dealer ship in chicago and have loved it ever since that day the only correction I have is the front window side molding is located at a point in view that obstructs when turning and the steering wheel does not tip down enough and the backing up visibility is harder because of the back window frame position This is not very much when yu consider all of the advantages and the fun of the drive also I have disablilites getting in other cars so this has been great ( I had a grand am before ) This is also a selling point

I just purchased a 2004 Vibe, front wheel drive, loaded, even with NAV system. Simply a great car, built by Toyota, but with better build quality than the Matrix. The Vibe is made in Calif. with the Corolla, yet the Matrix is built in Canada. Research has shown the Vibe has higher build quality, and you can get a better price than the Matrix.

My wife and I love our Vibe. We purchased the fusion orange model with the automatic transmission, power package and moons and tunes for $18.7k out the door (including tax title&plates). We opted for the 17" wheels well. So far we have taken several road trips in the Vibe, and are fighting over daily driving rights. Mind you we also own a corvette and an audi TT yet we prefer the utility, gas mileage and frugality of this little cross-over. Driving the Vibe feels natural...the seats are comfy! The interior storage room in the Vibe is outstanding! The torque of the 4 is adequate for passing and accelaration.

I compared the Subaru Forester, Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4, and the VIBE AWD. They are all great vehicles but on paper the VIBE offered more for your money. So I took a chance and purchased the AWD Vibe. I was a little leary of its lower horsepower ratings. But after driving it for a week now in New York City traffic, I found that it is quite peppy and has more power than I was lead to belive. It is very nimble and handles like a dream. The gas milege is great for a AWD vehicle. I recommend that you purchase the rear cargo mat because things tend to slide around in the cargo area if they are not tied down.

An excellent little car for very little money. Lots of room for people and cargo, stylish, comfortable, and fun to drive. Those who gripe about its snow performance are themselves to blame for not sticking on a decent pair of snow tires. Colorado winters are no problem with the right tires. Thoughtful interior, great gas mileage. If you don't care for pretentious luxury but want a very nice car, this is a great pick. Yay for Toyota reliability.

I'm satisfied with my Vibe. It's the standard model with five speed manual transmission. I like the way it handles, it's comfortable, has good utility and it gets reasonably good gas mileage. My only complaint is that the interior could be a little longer to allow for more storage space. In the future I would hope to see them produce this car as a hybrid with all-wheel drive.

It handles well, it gives good gas mileage, it's comfortable inside, and it has a surprisingly lot of space. If it holds true to its Toyota heritage, it should be reliable. Also the 5-speed manual transmission does a better job of allowing you to maintain a constant highway speed than did the auto transmission that comes on the Corolla, which I got ticketed in while driving as a rental car because I couldn't keep it under 65! Overpowering a car isn't a good idea if it puts you in a first- relationship with your local highway patrolman.

I don't know if it is just me but the 5 speed manuel gives the engine the feel of the GT version. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the higher rated GT, which is why I opted for the 130 HP version. I never envisioned purchasing a Pontiac, but you can't mistake it's better looks than that of the Toyota Matrix. I have the say GM has finally got its stuff together!

I've averaged 600 miles a week on my Vibe, and after 6 months of ownership, STILL LOVE this car! I find it a perfect blend of economy, cargo room, and passenger room. I'm over 6 ft.tall with physical problems similar to arthritis, and have always been uncomfortable in small cars, but the Vibe's design with taller seats allow me to be comfortable, and have 3 other passengers with enough leg room! It handles well at high speeds and zipping around in traffic. I went from a full size truck to this car, and haven't regretted it. The cargo space is ample, and easy to clean. I highly recommend this car! Even at the higher speeds I drive, I'm averaging 33mpg.

I bought our Vibe as my teenage son's first car. Our family buys new cars and drives them for up to 10 years, so we thought getting him something new would be wise, especially at the price we paid. It satisfies both our needs for something small enough for him to handle, and his desire for something sporty, not to mention the hatch holds two hockey bags, or all his equipment plus an overnight bag for tournaments. We're very happy with it so far as an "in-town" car, and a couple of highway trips (200 mi. RT) have shown it to be peppy and comfortable for a small car. Sometimes I'll use it myself for errands around town.

I brought this vehicle in Sept 2002, trading in a 2000 Chevy Cavalier. I loved the test drive and came home with the Vibe. I took the Vibe on a road trip to the New England states via a scenic route thru the mountains on back roads. It handled wonderfully and got great gas milage on the trip 33+mpg the whole trip. It's the perfect car for me and my auto insurance went down almost a $100.00 per year. I'd buy another Vibe in a heart beat!

Styling - New, fresh & modern. Performance & economy is very good. The GT will surely be my next car. Overall, this car seems very well "thought out," eg. the standard 115V oulet, fold down passenger seat that acts as a table and the extra 12V outlet. Love the stick shift. Sturdy handling & solid feel. Had a very good experience at the dealer. They went above and beyond to find the exact car I was looking for in a very short time. Very happy with my Vibe thus far.

Love my vibe

I have always driven big cars, Cadilac, Chev Lumina, Chev suburbans, my wife said try it out. I drove it but said it was too small. A week later trial drove again. Needed a car so thought I would try it. Fell in Love. Use it to drive all over grass delivering stuff on Golf course. Never out of room with lay down seats. A real blast, and a head turner also. Fun to drive, and great to haul everything.

Vehicle came with few flaws in its build/design. Engine noise is greater than expected and there is vibration from engine revs that are felt accelerating, But,t does not deter me from loving this car's looks, handling, safety, comfort and fuel economy. I now have 3400 miles on it. City mpg's = 24- 25 & 33.8 highway. No way you'll get the posted 29 mpg's in town. Interior is nice, seats give great back support on long rides and everything is "ergonomically correct". Visibility is very good. This vehicle is much roomier/bigger inside that one would imagine looking at it from the outside. I give this vehicle 2 thumbs up because it does it all.

The VIBE is a great vehicle, a sleeper car as it looks great, handles well and is fun to drive. I tinted the windows and took the plastic appliques off the car and cleaned it all up and people turn their head and look and don't know what it is. The interior cabin is big, the fold down seats make the inside very accomodating for any situation, and the hatch is there to load whatever you need to haul. Overall, a great performing car, handles great, fun to drive.

I love my Pontiac Vibe. I am a 48 yr old female, and my daughter is 15. I wanted a car we BOTH liked, because this will be her car next year. I know it is called a 'cross-over utility vehicle' but people are always asking if it is an SUV or a station wagon. What do YOU think???

Performance is lacking, especially with four passengers. However, normal driving experience is good with adequare acceleration. Car seats, driving position, visibility are quite good. Noise level is average, windy conditions do affect car steerage somewhat. The build quality seems quite excellent. No deterioration at all in brakes,suspension,engine,trim. The independent suspension is really excellent for this level of car... The useability of fold down seats, wagon like structure is very practical and not bad looking.

Have owned my new 2004 Vibe for three months. Have driven it from California to Maryland in three days, and from Maryland to Georgia and back. Have driven in ice (no problem) and wind (gets blown around a little more than a civic but less than an SUV). Great for short trips with 4-5 people or long trips / lots of luggage with 2 people because the cargo area isn't all that big but the back seat folds completely flat to make a huge storage area. Very comfortable on long trips; plenty of room in the back seat, even for men. Driver sits relatively high, giving them a good view of the road. Quiet ride, road is easy to feel.

The control of the car along with the great view of the road from the driver's seat....PLUS the great crash ratings sold me.

I like the quality better which is not what most people usually expect going from a honda to a pontiac. But it is true! I fully recomend this car.

I got a bargain, $10,900 for the base vehicle with 400 miles. So far I have averaged 29 mpg combined hwy and city (900 miles on the odometer to date). While acceleration is not blazing, only sports cars beat me at traffic lights, and only if they are ready. The steering is crisp (no power) and gives good feedback (a touch torque steer). The ride is smoother than I expected, but I previously drove a truck :)

The 2004 Pontiac Vibe is a good choice with today's gas prices and the rising cost of automobiles. It's looks are a bit deceiving because the interior spaciousness is huge even though the outside looks small. I'm 6'4" and 215 and I am very comfortable when driving the vehicle and needless to say, it is easy on gas with 30 plus city and 40 plus highway. For 20 thousand dollars it can't be beat.

I bought this car after owning a 2002 Audi A4 which turned out to be a lemon. I will never buy another VW/Audi product again! Vibe's have great looks,(better looking than the Toyota Matrix)performance, fuel economy, versatility and room. This car is smooth and quiet on the freeway and peppy around town. Passing power is good even with the 4spd automatic which my Vibe has. The moon and tunes package is great too, with excellent sound quality from the stereo. With more standard features than the Toyota Matrix, just as good reliability, and coupled with the rebates from GM, Vibes are by far the better choice of the two.

PUrchased for the sole purpose of commuting long distances and to have fun while doing it. Car is very comfortable on long hauls. My wife got the AWD version. So, we have "vibes" for each other...

I absolutely loved this car when I bought it in April. I loved it up until the snow started to fall. This car has terrible performance in snowy/icy conditions. Has anyone else experienced this? There is another gentleman who I work with and he feels the same way about his vibe. I have never owned a Pontiac before, and by far this is the worst car I have ever driven in the snow/ice.

We like the roomy interior, and the flexibility to set the seating in many different ways. We have the 17 inch tires and the handling is superb, however it does need more power. I understand a turbo is going to be available, this will help. A great car for the price.

I drive 70 miles each day. I traded in my Corolla, because my back was killing me if I had to drive a long distance (2hrs or more). Now my back is grateful because the seats are very supportive and the ride is comfortable and quiet!(Driving the Corolla was like driving a beer can!) The Vibe is bigger, carries more stuff (so much so that my huband want his next car to be a Vibe instead of the small pick-up he was planning on getting. Thank you Pontiac for bringing back the pride in driving an American Car!

Purchased the Vibe in June of 2002. I love the sleek style. It is very affordable, and the gas mileage is great. We don't travel long distances often, but it is great for small trips. The electrical outlet is a wonderful feature with children. They can play their games without wearing down tons of batteries. My only complaint is the smell it makes when it is cold outside. It smells like rotten eggs, but once the engine heats up it goes away. We have had this checked, but there is no apparent problem. It only does this in the colder weather. Otherwise, it is a great car and I strongly recommend it!

Only 1 month old, my vibe is so versatile. Can haul kids n stuff or cool cruising car. Good gas mileage and build quality. The under shifter storage door should be sturdier. Loads of room, this is like a mini-suv. You sit up high: the window sills and roof height are the same as my toyota pickup, but the car looks so compact. Great styling, I think it's better looking than the matrix.

For a tall person like me who wants good gas mileage and isn't so concerned about acceleration, this is the perfect vehicle. It has extra headroom and seats at the right level for easy ingress/egress. Many have commented on the red lighted instruments.

I generally don't like smaller vehicles and have owned larger trucks and SUVs for years. Decided I don't need all that room and gas going out the tailpipe, so looked into smaller SUVs. Many are so-so on gas mileage, so started researching these "crossover" vehicles and discovered the Vibe. Went right out, test drove it, loved it and bought one on the spot!!

A lot of utility & I'll never lose it in a parking lot (Fusion Orange Metallic). Cargo floor rattles sometimes. Great gas mileage (30.2 mpg for 1st 3600 miles) Wheel doesn't tilt enough & I can't move the seat closer w/o bumping my knee. It is a lot of fun & the moons & tunes pkg. is a kick; but I miss the power of my 2000 Intrigue.

This car has it all,roomy, good handling great stereo, excellent GM build quality,good gas mileage,color choices,super bargain from dealers who helped me find every discount that was available. Power package is worth the money. Lookad at Matrix but not the same bargain and so much uglier in a blah way. Toyota engine tends to drone on though at least has some pep.All that's unknown is long term reliability but so far it's ahead of my previous Nissan (various electrical problems never found by dealer).If this car had Saturns dentproof panels it would be just about perfect.Anyway ,buy one ,you won't be sorry.

Tie downs work well. 8 foot molding/trim can be carried with all windows closed. Viability good all around seat. Rear window defroster works well. Has features found on expensive cars.

The Pontiac Vibe is a great vehicle for anyone. It has enough room for a family to travel in it together and it is also small enough so if your driving by yourself you don't feel as though your driving a boat. It is the perfect vehicle falling between a car and a SUV. It is wonderful for the college student having to drive back and forth to school. A definite have for anyone.

I had not planned on getting rid of my sunfire because I loved it, but when I saw the new Vibe I fell in love with it and drove it home that afternoon. And my husband and I have been enjoying driving around town and receiving so many compliments. I also love the color (orange fusion metalic)! It's great a can find my Vibe anywhere I park. Thank you so much for our new comfortable ride.

As a family on the go and requiring an economical and functional car, we have hit the nail squarely on the head. The combination of price, breeding (Toyota thru-and-thru), economy, and comfort are staggering in today's market. The car sits just high enough to afford a good view, without being rude to other drivers. While performance is moderate, it is exceptional for the 34 mpg we actually get in combined driving. At 6'3" I am very comfortable in this wonderful car. The lone gripe is that the angle of the top of the doors gives a somewhat "distorted" feel when looking over your shoulder or using mirrors to change lanes or back up.

Not all I had hoped.

The peppy part and the milage are on the mark but it's really just another small car to me. It's noisy and has a constant vibration. There are too many blind spots. I drive a large delivery truck and can manuever it better in traffic. The passenger side seat in narrower than the drivers side and squeezes you. Problems including a CD player skipping and the air conditioning quiting. It has an AC outlet but only the smallest of plugs will fit because of the cover cap. We needed a new key and it took the dealer 25 minutes to program the auto lock system with it.

Sun roof,rear door and window access make it all fun.

Acceleration could be better, but if you keep the rpm's up the car does fine. Cruising at highway speeds and passing is not a problem. The Vibe suits my needs right now, and I really like it.

I first saw this vehichle nearly two years ago at my place of employment. I didn't like the way it looked. But I was forced to work with thousands of these cars over several months.(Yes, I build them.) I slowly became very fond of the appearance, and I couldn't believe that this AWD car got 30 MPG! I know I may sound biased, but I don't think that there is a better value in this price range. It is essentially a Corolla drive-train in a flashier, roomier package; a great combination of reliability and functionality. I am also well over 6 feet tall and have plenty of room for myself, wife and two car seats.

Mustang got me through "male menopause." Vibe has the sporty looks and is as much fun to drive with far better quality & practicality. Was going for Vibe Gt until saw in manual it requires premium fuel -for an economy car? Six foor two and is plenty comfortable. Narrow rear wheel wells allow alot to be carried flat. With snow tires,fine in snow. 2004 guages in white & orange better than 2003's all orange ones. I give it a solid recommendation.

It's comfortable (I have back problems 7 disc surgeries) the seating fits me exceptionally well I am 6 ft tall, 224 lbs with a large build. My wife and i took the Vibe to New Hampshire this year and we got 31.5 mpg on the highway and 29 mpg around North Conway.

Not really a car, suv or wagon, it's a great combination of all three. This is what "cars" should be like in the future--durable, good fuel economy, roomy, comfortable, stylish, practical, and flexible. You can feel and see Toyota quality, but also enjoy Pontiac's sporty styling (much better than frumpy-looking Matrix) especially with the gray body cladding instead of the more expensive and easy to scratch/chip body-color sides.

But most of all I like the fact that I don't have to stop and gas it up all the time. A tank of gas in this car seems to go forever. I also think that the Vibe is a people friendly car. The other day I pulled up to the Bank at the same time as another Vibe owner. Before I could get out of my Vibe a woman in her Vibe called out to me and said "nice Vibe. How do you like it?"

I love this car! I've owned hondas for 25 years, but after 9/11, I figured I'd buy something more American. This car not only looks great, it is totally functional, comfortable, and practical. And it's just the right height for me and my elderly mother to get into - no more climbing up out of a hole!

I have taken it to Florida from North Carolina twice since I bought my Vibe and have gotten great gas mileage-- 33/35 mpg highway, Every where I get people wanting to know if it is a minivan a station wagon or an suv. I just tell them its a mini-suv. everyone loves it and most would like to own one. I love the idea of not having to crawl in and out of it like a small car or step up high like an suv. I have hauled a heavy-duty storm door without the back door open. I simply popped the backglass open and it hung out about 2" laying flat. I can seat 3 large people in the back seat without them being crowded. My friends like that. I LOVE MY VIBE

The Vibe is the best purchase that we have ever made. It is fun to drive, awesome to haul small stuff, and how cool is it that the back seats fold down FLUSH with the trunk to make for easy hauling of larger items. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a well-priced, economical, reliable vehicle that stands out from the rest out there!

Great ride and great looks. Lots of head room and leg room for passengers but for a tall driver, the "dead pedal" for the left foot is annoying and forces my foot into an uncomfortable position. Long rides are sometimes a chore because of this arrangement. Lots of cargo space and the rear window opening is fantastic for loading & unloading groceries. All in all, I would buy this vehicle again without hesitation. I just wish that they would get rid of that "dead pedal".......

love it

Fell in love with the Vibe AWD in the showroom. Bought it after a test drive and have had no regrets. It's a head turner and generates considerable comments from people in parking lots who want to know more about it. Forget the PT Cruiser - the Vibe is what's happening! Seats are a little uncomfortable on long trips but otherwise it's ideal for us.

Great Fun!

This car is alot of fun to drive. It is quite a bit roomier than it looks from the outside. The fact that the entir rear of the car turns into one large cargo area is probably the best feature. As far as performance goes, it would be hard to find a car that performs better in a small, tight, and fun to drive package.

Car's appearance small and deceiving. Must view from inside out. Spacious/lots of compartments/storage. Have cargo mat/nets in your deal. Shadow color hardly shows road dirt. Stay clear from Monotone. Road particles can easily chip the paint. Sporty lit dashboard electronics. Sporty steering wheel. You can rest your left foot on a foot rest while driving. Car sluggish at first until in second gear. No highway passing woes. Great gas mileage 29 city mpg and 34 highway mpg. Overall, great car for the money with a SUV feel.

Good, reliable car. Very good gas mileage and plenty of space inside for a small car. With a Toyota Corolla drivetrain, it'll be reliable. Wish it had better handling, similar to Mazda Protege, but I bought it because it was more thrifty fuel-wise and had a bigger interior. It'll never be a BMW but for an unrich guy like me it was a good buy. The interior is fun and the stereo sounds good. As a recording engineer, I always test my mixes in the car. Plus having that extra space with the fold- down rear seats, I can carry a rack of equipment while still having kid- carrying flexibility that I didn't have in my two seat pickup.

I'm very pleased with my Vibe and have had absolutely no problems with it so far (6500 miles). The fuel economy has been excellent, consistently in the low to mid 30s and the comfort and drivability (5 speed) have been great, no squeeks, rattles or things falling off at all. I owned a Toyota/GM mix before as a Geo Prism and had excellent service from it. I believe I will enjoy this car even more and expect that the reliability will be there as well due to the Toyota influence.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!

To sum it up, I LOVE MY 2004 Vibe. It is an awesome car! It is roomy enough for 2 adults and 2 car seats, with room for luggage or something for a trip. There are alot of extra features, such as a desk or a storage bin for the hatch (which with 2 small children I will be purchasing soon!) The chrome on the inside is what sold me though! Like the song says, "Her favorite color is chrome." Until now, chrome was not important to me, but I LOVE IT! I would never buy another car again!

Loved the 2003 so much I bought a 2004. Waiting for the supercharger to come out as I purchased the FWD automatic (wife - can't drive stick) The GT version has the PEP I wanted and the supercharger will allow me that. Let's get on GM. Get it to the public. You teased us since the auto show. HATE the automatic headlamps as they do what they want to Sun or Shade.

Eager to see how it will fair in the winter. Overall this car is an excellent investment. Pontiac styling with toyata reliability, can't beat that.

After 60 days in the Vibe GT I am very happy with this car. The acceleration is great and it is a fun car to drive. It handles well, although you have to pay attention at highway speeds. The 6-speed gearbox is tight and it shifts easily. I have NAV, and the CD Changer and larger wheels. I find people staring at it all the time, maybe as it is Lava Red. A great buy at the price!

This is a great car. I keep finding things that I love about it. Moonroof, hidden power supply, 115-volt outlet. The elevated seats make visibility great, and there is lots of room for backseat passengers. Though one must make frequent trips for gasoline due to the 12 gallon tank, it is a dream to drive, and makes you look forward to your next trip. Very comfortable and versatile with tons of room for everything you'll take with you (including roof rack if you can't fit everything inside!).

After 3 chevy blazers and terible gas millage and expensive repairs I switched to the Vibe GT. Still able to pull my jet ski, haul 4 bikes in the hitch and still get close to 30 mpg even at 80 mph. Does loose a bit of speed up the hills down south, but a quick downshift to 5th and kept up with friends in there vans and suv's. Only difference is it was under $20.00 to fill my tank and we all went around 300 miles to a tank of gas.

I was a very happy VW driver but we needed more room without a huge new monthly payment (new dad). The Vibe fit all our stuff and still has room to spare. Better fuel economy was a plus and the little things like a roof rack and storage spaces everywhere helped make this decision easy. Also, safety ratings and recommendations from the web and Consumer Reports were what we wanted to hear. The Vibe handles well and offers a lot of car for a fair price.

This is a great car! Not only does it look sharp, it drives as smooth as my last car;(a honda civic). They have a great selection of different colors. I got red lava. I get alot of complements on my car. The gas milage is pretty good too. It drives like a car but you sit up higher like in an suv. The only thing I would like changed is the windshield sun visor. The visor only comes down about 1/3 of the windshield. When I drive in the morning the sun comes strait in and I can't block out the sun. I just put my sun glasses on and I'm ok. I have only had it for a short time, so we will see about the reliability later. Go test drive one It's fun to drive.

The interior options is great, with all the options that is offered their is nothing to want for. I get a new auto about every 18 month and I can honestly say that, I will mostly likely get another vibe,this is one on the nisest car I have ever owned.

I've found the Vibe perfect for my needs. Its got a ton of cargo space once the back seats are folded down so I move all my stuff pretty easily. I've been really impressed with the gas mileage I get, and the Vibe has a sporty feel to it. Its a very practical car on paper, but it also looks great on the road. All my friends think its a great looking car. I just graduated from college and I think it has everything I want (in terms of features, safety, gas mileage, and looks) for an affordable price.

I've wanted this car every since the first brochure came out. I've found my hatch remote unavailable and the middle compartment will not stay closed. It is made of cheap plastic and will not stay latched. To the dealer I go in less than 2 months to get the remote reprogrammed and the plastic compartment fixed. I drive 80 miles in a day and wanted an economical car. I fill up every 3 - 4 days because of the small tank and I don't drive 55. My paint is already chipping from the rocks. Suggestion: Get the clear coat put on your new car. I'm still happy with my vibe. It is fun to drive and with having dogs, the hard plastic in the back is awesome!
