Review of the 2004 Pontiac Vibe

  • Here's one Pontiac that hits its mark. The Vibe blends performance, practicality and affordability into a tastefully styled, but still fun, sport wagon package.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Comfortable ride, unique features, roomy backseat, versatile cargo area, good gas mileage.

  • Cons

    All-wheel-drive version is sluggish, Toyota's version is likely to have better resale value.

  • What's New for 2004

    All-season tires are now included with the 17-inch aluminum wheels, and XM radio is now available as part of the "Moon and Tunes" package. A dealer-installed supercharger will be available for the base engine starting later in the model year.

Good value - but questions

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Vibe GT Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)

Great Gas Mileage. Fun Car to drive. Fits smaller people like a glove. Some quirks that seem not to make sense such as Headlights always on(Can not be turned off at any time), Front windows recall(mine were fixed under warranty before recall), Front of car including hood chips very easily, and most nagging for me is the fan in the car is always on(air comes through vents constantly). These things get noticed after newness of car wears off!




My vibe rock!!!

I originally bought a 2003 Vibe the year they came out, and traded it for and 04 GT. This is the best car I have ever had. I have 125,000 miles on mine and have only put 1 set of brakes, 1 set of tires and a battery in my Vibe. This car ROCKS. I will drive it until the wheels fall off and get another one.




I love my gt

My 4 year daughter and myself were involved in a head on collision with our Vibe. A woman ran a stop light and hit us head on going about 45-50 mph. All I can say is, this car certainly made an impression for me to buy a new one without hesitation. The front end was totally demolished and totalled, yet both of us were able to walk away with only bruises. The structure of the impact and how well it protected us was simply amazing. For being a small SUV, it's stylish, great on gas, avg. 30-35 mpg everyday driving, and the room inside is amazing. After owning it over a year, I still can say I love the Vibe! No major problems for functionality!




Most practical car i've owned

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Vibe GT Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 6M)

I love this car because of its reliability and versatility. I frequently lay the seats down to haul loads. My lifetime mpg over 50,000 miles is 34.1 combined. I've owned a number of Hondas, and they have all used less fuel and had more power. Whoever designed the cruise control was on drugs. Drop below 25 mph and it loses it's memory and has to be reset. I don't like the daytime running lights. The oem Continental tires only lasted 15k miles without hard driving. The Michelin Hydroedge replacements really make the car handle better. If GM built all their cars with this kind of quality and practicality, they wouldn't be in financial trouble. Like an suv without the disadvantages.




Fun car

We bought the Vibe as a company car. We needed a reliable vehicle with great gas mileage and lots of room to haul stuff. It's been great. When we got 39 mpg on the road last month driving between jobs we were thrilled down to the wallet. It's been a great car.
