We bought our Vibe with 36,000 miles and are now at 96,000 miles. The only repair was on the alternator at 90,000 miles. Outside of that it has just been oil changes and brake pads. This is a great car! The only thing it lacks is a cool factor. However, we drive a ton and the whole family enjoys the ride.
Sun roof-Great on summer days! Fold down seats in back-Great for Home Depot runs. Toyota Engine-No horse power, but very dependable Gas Mileage is amazing. 30MPG no matter where you drive.
Our Vibe has a mesh material that is very hard to keep clean when you have kids.
