2005 Pontiac Vibe Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Drive train dead reliable--handling better than good--brakes excellent--runs best at 80--mpg good--had only one costly repair in the 10 yrs we owned it
Seats awful--dash rattles & squeaks--ride can be brutally choppy at times--cruise control causes trans to shift out of OD on slight grades (actually shifted down while driving into a headwind generated by a Florida storm; don't buy one of you live in the mountains!)--carpets fit poorly & wear out quickly--tire drone drowns out radio (whose display died fairly early)
Totaled out in 2016 because on coming left turner failed to yield & turned directly in front of me (gotta watch them snowbirds)

2005 Pontiac Vibe Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The Vibe has a lot of storage space. I like the fact that it can fit five people, and the fact that I can put down the back seats and fit two bales of alfafa in the back. The hard plastic in the back makes it easy to sweep. The only thing I do not like is the five speed manual transmission has some weakness at aroung 200.,000, but maybe my expectations are two high. I get more than 40 mpg if I drive 55 mph, and 33 combined if I drive faster.

Review

I purchased my Vibe with 24000 miles about nine years ago. I now have about 129000 miles and its still going strong. It still averages around 24-27 in city and 30-33 miles mpg on the highway.

Review

I just got my new 2005 Pontiac Vibe today and I have fallen in love! The size is perfect for a first car and I have done much research on this car and it seems to be fairly cheap on gas and to maintain! Plus for me since I am only 19! I absolutely love the look of this car! The only this I would change about the interior is get a new radio whit an aux cord, since I like to listen to music through my phone. But other then that, the inside of the car is in mint condition, even being 10 years old! There is a lot of run and it runs great! Buying my Pontiac at 182,000 it's defiantly still running great! The only complaint I have is that once I hit 60 mph on the highway, the steering wheel was shaking. Could this just be a tire issue? Does anyone have or had this problem? Getting this checked out today and will update post once problem is fixed!
