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


Review

We love our Vibe. It's fun to drive,
great fuel economy, we are gald we got
the "moon and tunes" package. I put on
after market tires and wheels to
enhance the appearance. It's everyones
favorite to drive in our family. We
highly recommend it or the Toyota
Matrix.


Best Features

Fun to drive and fuel economy


Worst Features

Make the roof rack an option. We don't need it.

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


Review

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).


Best Features

Functionality. Fuel economy.


Worst Features

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 minor.

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


Review

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


Best Features

Seats, shifter position, versatility, reasonably priced without the cheap car feeling


Worst Features

Slight increase in horsepower

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
