2009 Pontiac Vibe GT - great!

2009 Pontiac Vibe GT 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
Purchased used with only 12k miles. 2.4L (toyota camry) engine and 5 speed auto/manual a great combination. This is not offered on the Toyota Matrix. GT model rims/tires are nice, but noisy on rough roads and you feel the bumps. Versatility and appearance are better than average. Handling is excellent because of full independent suspension, wide/low profile tires and sport tuned suspension. I did my research and compared to Matrix, Versa, Mazda-3 and Fit - Vibe GT model won out for best combination fuel economy, performance and SUV type features in a compact hatchback. GM warranty a plus (100K powertrain). Mileage should be around 30+ on highway.
Performance with 2.4L Toyotoa engine and 5 speed auto/toggle shift - fold flat rear seats - Monsoon sound system with XM radio - Interior comfort and room - body style - handling
Road noise on GT model - some loose parts rattle or vibrate on interior -
