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.
Comfort, visibility, ability to carry cargo, handling. Fun to drive. Rock solid reliability-hasn't been back to the shop for anything.
Reprogram the cruise control. More power and/or better fuel economy. Ditch the drl's. Better tires from the factory.
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.
Hauling capacity, handles like a sports car, great mpg, great power jack systems internal
This is a great little car. Good performance and great looks, much better than the Matrix. Fuel economy is considerably better than EPA rating. I have only one problem with the car since new-a cracked battery case- an it was fixed under warranty. 46000 miles and no other problems. Plenty of room and comfortable.
Six-speed manual and plenty of storage space. Excellent quality, performance, and looks.
Get rid of the reverse alarm after the car is moving. By then I think I know I'm in reverse. Also, the hidden power point only works when the vehicle is running. I don't need a hidden one when I'm in the car. It would be nice to be able to charge a cell phone when I'm out of the car.
Pontiac has his the right Vibe with
this sports wagon. The Vibe interior is
very comfortable around town or on long
trips, there is plenty of interior room
for all 4 passengers. Great fuel
economy and a very peppy, yet loud
engine that hopefully will be refined
by the time I buy my next Vibe. The
folding back seats allow for great
cargo storage. This vehicle is a little
of everything one needs in a small
SUV/Sports wagon, it's so fun to own
and drive everyday, great job Pontiac.
The six speed manual transmission and
The car should be a little heavier
without compromising performance.
The Pontiac Vibe has very good
performance for the cost. I drive a
six speed GT version. It has amazing
acceleration in passing situations.
The loading area is very good. A very
practical, performance option.
Large loading area, sporty handling.
Use regular gasoline in the GT model
with same performance.
