Have owned my vibe for 15 months. It is
the most practical car I have ever
owned. Drive 65 miles one way to work
every day in Atlanta traffic. Haul
everything I need to in the back with
the seats down. Open the sunroof, turn
the radio up, crank up the ac and cruise
( or stop and go).
Functionality. Fuel economy.
Clutch must be fully (and then some)
depressed to start. I jumped the switch
out. Hatchback door has to be closed
FIRMLY or you will have the interior
lights flickering on as you drive. both
Excellent vehicle! Perfectly suits my
needs. Recently started a family and
commute 190 miles each day. Gas mileage
has improved as the miles rack up and
the functionality of this vehicle is
great! Extremely comfortable, plenty of
head and leg room, and lots of cargo
space when needed. I purchased a 2
wheel drive with the 5 speed standard.
It is fun to drive a stick again and I
average about 35.5 mpg. Highly
recommended. No problems to date with
24,000 miles. I would opt for slighty
more power if it was available
Seats, shifter position, versatility,
reasonably priced without the cheap car
The Vibe is fun to drive and
performance is great for "mom's car".
We picked the Vibe over the Matrix
because of GM's financing. Mileage is
fantastic, especially compared to my
old Blazer. Seating and leg room are
comfortable for everyone, even in the
back seat. My husband, who is very
picky about car performance, is
surprised at how much he likes the Vibe.
Moon & Tunes, mileage, seating
Telescopic steering wheel, non-skid
material in cargo area, longer sun
visors, more standard features on base
I tried Matrix and Vibe. Vibe seems to
be a better value to me. We have the
moon and tunes package. Radio sounds
good, could care less about the moon
roof. Getting 10 more miles to the
gallon than the SUV I traded. Enjoying
the extra pocket money.
Nice radio. Plastic flooring in rear.
Daytime running lights.
Chrome on dash reflects in windshield,
distracting. Radio numbers can't be
read in bright sunshine.
