I'm very pleased with my Vibe. It's the AWD model. It handles well and is pretty zippy with the 2.4L engine. Upgraded factory sound system with Sirius/XM is great. Mileage has consistently been around 26-27 mpg. The car is great in the snow with or without snow tires. With the back seat down it has an amazing amount of cargo space. The back seat has a lot of leg room for a small car. Too bad they discontinued this car, I'd buy another one!
All wheel drive, sound system, fold down back seat for space, Overall exterior design is very contemporary looking, great mileage while having enough space for 4 adults to ride comfortably.
I'm not a fan of the brushed metal look on the dash. The mix of LCD and analog display gauges isn't the greatest, but they are all easy to read. The car has a 4 speed auto and I would have preferred a 5 speed auto for mileage. The 5 speed wasn't available with the AWD.
