2003 Pontiac Vibe GT Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Purchased this car three weeks ago and am still in awe at the value for the money. Factoring in the rebates and end of model year discounts available this was by far the best value. Sure you can spend thousands more for faster, bigger, louder, or sleeker but look at the big picture. Think about when gas goes back up to over 2 bucks a gallon your getting nearly 25mpg!


Best Features

GT engine Nimble feel. Quick response times.


Worst Features

The cargo cover is poor to say the least. Keyless entry should function while car is running too. The high mounted stop light should be attached to the liftgate glass.

2003 Pontiac Vibe Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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.


Best Features

Moon & Tunes, mileage, seating


Worst Features

Telescopic steering wheel, non-skid material in cargo area, longer sun visors, more standard features on base model

Review

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.


Best Features

Nice radio. Plastic flooring in rear. Daytime running lights.


Worst Features

Chrome on dash reflects in windshield, distracting. Radio numbers can't be read in bright sunshine.

2003 Pontiac Vibe Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is very appealing. People always stop me and ask "what type of car is that?" Some would like to call it a SUV station wagon but still think the body style of the car has something to say.


Best Features

Front grill, headlights, dashboard and interior.


Worst Features

The car definitely needs stronger visual advertisement. In other words, Pontiac should push the car harder like it's sister vehicle --the Toyota, Matrix.
