I bought my Vibe new back in early '07 ... here it is five years later and I still love it.
She (yes, it's a girl -- with her own name) just turned the corner and has safely and efficiently taken me over 100,000 miles.
Can't rave enough about fuel economy.
Last road trip was just a few weeks ago (about 900 miles r/t) ... she did me proud with 30-35 mpg!!
I noticed a past reviewer commented on very poor handling in Midwest winter snows.
I'd like to chime in on that and say mine was quite the Opposite.
She handled herself very respectably in a South Dakota winter -- with FOUR blizzards back-to-back.
