A great vehicle that unfortunately fell due to the fate of GM. Purchased 2 years ago and no issues at all - always follow the scheduled maintenance and visit a GM dealer. I would purchase a Vibe as my next vehicle if it still existed.
Somewhat of a extended blind spot in the rear when backing up but have accommodated for this - very careful
I have had two years of fun and economical driving. It has lots of space for carrying people and cargo. The cargo area is high enough that I was even able to get a boxed dishwasher in the back with the seats folded and the lift gate closed, yet it still feels like a compact vehicle. Manual driver's seat adjustment up and down is possible (not just sliding the seat back and forth), a plus for short people. Mileage is 30-33 on the freeway. I would buy another in the future if they were still making them. Dealer and service are great.
Roominess; fold-down seats; fun to drive
Visibility slightly impaired by right rear support post.
Ok, I bought this as a lease return with 15k. But it's GM Certified. Now, review for what it is, not for what is not. It delivers on every aspect of its designed mission. It's an AWD AT SUV/5 door lift back, with comfortable seating for 4 (5 if you have kids). Great space to load stuff with seats down. Peppy, quiet, nice handling, not too stiff or spongy, and fuel economy is pretty darn good for an AWD. It's easy to get between 25 and 30 mpg normal driving. Sound system/CD/MP3/XM is very nice, and On Star is a plus. Mostly Toyota Matrix twin, so I know it's gonna be durable and last (parts will always be around). AWD w/AT will use more gas than 2WD, but that's expected. 2 Thumbs Up!
Economical AWD even with automatic. Solid, handles and rides great. Looks good, comfortable yet sporty, and
Hmm, nothing really. Door ding guards would be nice, and lighted vanity mirror for passenger. To add more options would be nice, but not necessary. If I had wanted Cadillac, Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Lexus etc., characteristics, then that's what I would have bought (for a ton more money).
