Only have had reg maintence and two two calls(1 was PCM). Not single other problem and now have 240 K on it. Starting to show suspension weakness after putting 500lbs of brick in the back. Should have no problem getting 300K,knock on wood
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!
I bought my Vibe as a mgr special. It had 3k miles on it. The car is great (I did research on Edmunds.com before finalizing my decision) and so versatile! One time we had to drive over 1200 late at night to go "rescue" my mom and dad, and since I had just worked all day- my husband put a blow up mattress in the back and I slept the whole way!
The only problems I have had with it is the interior lighting system inside is not totally working correctly. The drivers seat is not the most comfortable for going long distances (I've gone some long distances in this car!), but overall...it's been a great car for me!
I got the deluxe edition (moonroof, super sound system, etc.)...love it!
Wish the seats were more comfortable and I would've loved to have an armrest I could really use...especially on long trips! More cup holders!
I am extremely happy to announce that my vibe just hit the 300,000 miles mark and still running.
I have driving this car around the country all the way to New Mexico and back with barely little maintenance.
If you can find this vehicle get it! I promise you will not regret getting this vehicle!
Lots of space. Zippy performance. Tight handling. Great gas mileage!
130,000 miles and still going strong!!!!
I bought this car with 32,000 miles on it and have never had any big issues except A/C quit getting cold to which I took it in and no one could find a leak but after having a/c charged 3x and a/c only lasting a couple days there must be a leak somewhere but Ive chosen to live without it at this point.
I've used this car for sooooo many things, hauling just about anything I could fit in it (cake deliveries, landscaping materials, home improvement materials, furniture ect...).
Hoping to see 200,000 miles or more on this baby, still looks in great shape!!
Oh i usually get 33mph highway :)
