I love how I can fold down the back seats and fit almost anything in this small car that has so much space and room. Plus I am very tall and wanted something that had plenty of leg room for the driver and all the passengers, this has it. Lots of room for a car!!! The vibe has good fuel economy and plenty of room! I love it.
The fold down back seats and how high up sit up for being in a car. Plus it is very roomy!
I would like to see an easy way to hook up an ipod or mp3 player to the stereo.
I bought the Vibe because I have had a Corolla with 270,000 miles on it with no problems. Must have gotten a lemon as engine went out at 80,000miles ($5000 and GM laughed at me---never another GM vehicle for me). Also replaced 2 catalytic converters---never did this before on the many, many cars I have owned. Check engine light has been on more than it is off. Noted others had tire problems--so did I. Tire shop said camber was off from factory. Other than the expenses above the car has been fun to drive and gets great mileage---lots of room. I will never deal with GM again, however.
Get major components that last. Needs rear spoiler badly as any dust/snow accumulates on rear window in a heartbeat.
I purchased my Vibe the first year they came out. Never again! I hope they ironed out all the kinks! I am really disappointed with this vehicle and definitely would not buy another. I have a ton of complaints about this vehicle. The molding at the bottom of the door is falling off, the plastic cover under the front bumper and in the wheel well was falling off and dragging on my tires, the seat belt strangles me no matter how I adjust it, the visors are useless to someone my height (5'4"). The tilt steering is a joke...it tilts about 1 inch! The size of this vehicle is VERY deceiving. I can't fit anything in it, and the back doors don't open far enough to get anything large inside!
Not a darn thing. Ok, maybe the moonroof...which I had to go back to the dealer twice for because it leaked!
See above. The car has been very reliable, but I have been told by my mechanic that parts are hard to get!!! Pontiac, try again!!
Before the Pontiac Vibe was out on the market, I saw a report on Popular Mechanics, and I knew this was the car I was looking for my wife. It had all that she needed. Although being a totally new car, just knowing that it was basically a Toyota Corolla, that was all I needed to know, so, as soon as it was out, I ordered one. Made the right choice!
Favorite features are, cargo space, exterior design, reliability, fuel consumption.
Perhaps a little more power, but not if it takes fuel economy to be affected by much.
